For our fourth child, we used personalized coke bottles. The 6th coke had “coming soon” on it. Took a pic of them all lined up and let people realize what was happening.

I just sent everyone a pic of the pregnancy test. Its my second but i have 2 step sons too so ultimately number 4. Everyone kinda knew i was late anyways lol

For my third(actually I’ll be having him this coming Monday!) I got my significant other a simple card that said “Congrats” on the front and wrote “You did it again daddy” on the inside.

I told my family I got him a gag gift so they’d all be around to watch him open it. We’re big on jokes in my family so they thought it was just another practical joke.

I gave him a gift bag, and told him it was a just because gift and that he had to read the card out loud to everyone.

It went over pretty well lol.

I hope someday I’ll have a fourth child, but my third one was just born XD I don’t need two kids in diapers. But I’m scared that if I do have a fourth child, I’d get bitched at because my family thinks I won’t even be able to take care of the kids I have… My family is being very negative at the ideal of a fourth child for me, and it actually hurts me on the inside… So idk …

My last baby is 8 months old and I got pregnant with #4 literally 6 weeks pp. So they Will be very close in age obviously. I was just kinda like “Well looks like (baby’s name) is gonna be a big brother, surprise” :woman_shrugging:t2::rofl:

Hide your pregnancy and then just show up with #4 at a family function.

Pictures usually has great ideas

I was so scared to tell my family about baby number 4 but we decided it was the last one so I made a cute vest saying ‘no really, this is the last one - coming April 2022​:heart::heart::heart:’ I just showed them the vest & scan​:rofl: we didn’t get happy responses right away but with time everyone is fine and is now picking out names they like. (We didn’t tell until 20 weeks) good luck xxx

Unless your family supports you and takes care of your children and a 4th would be a burden to them, you simply say “hey, baby number 4 is on the way” because how many children you have is none of anyones business but your own! Congratulations :tada:
