Using balloons in your pregnancy announcement adds a touch of whimsy to the occasion, and you can do this even if you have a dog who you want to join in the fun. Tie a balloon to your dog’s collar that reads, “My humans are getting me a human." For added drama, include a bunch of baby-coloured balloons in the background, and if you want to go really crazy. Let the dog have fun chasing and popping them to make your video announcement even funnier!

One of the simplest ways to include your dog in the pregnancy announcement is to get a custom-made bandana that reads, "Big Brother" or "Big Sister." You could also get them to wear a pink or blue bandana if you happen to know the gender of your baby at the point of reveal. Snap a photo of your dog proudly donning the bandana and share the joyous news with family and friends on social media.
