    Hello everyone! Thank you for viewing.

    My DD (6yo) has been asking for a baby brother or sister and we are finally ready!

    It's got me thinking how to announce it (after 12w scan of course!). We tend to do creative surprises in our family and I'd love some ideas for how to tell her please!

    So far I have:

    1. Booking an extra 13 week scan and taking her to it, she wouldn't know until baby is on screen.
    2. Taking a test at 13 weeks and telling her what a positive result looks like before it appears and just watch her little face light up.
    3. Send her a card and present in the post from the baby as she is excellent at reading.

    Any and all ideas are appreciated! Thank you in advance.

    Sparky :yay:

    Thanks!
    Maybe something that says 'big sister' on it.

    We gave our then 6 year old son a card saying "big brother" with a picture of our 12 week scan inside it. He was over the moon with it xx
