So, after about two years of trying the husband and I are finally pregnant! It's our first and we're super excited. He already knows; I called him at work the minute those two lines popped up, but I haven't told my parents yet. I'm trying to think of a cute and creative way to tell them rather than just blurting it out, and was wondering if anyone had any ideas?? I just got done reading a past thread about this and got some ideas, but was wondering if anyone had any new ones?? Here's what I'm thinking so far (thanks to the old thread!):

Wearing a shirt that says "Guess what?" across the belly (or, "I'm so crafty, I make people.") and see how long it takes for them to figure it out!

or

Buying/making a little pair of baby booties, putting them in a regular shoe box, ask my parents if they want to see the new shoes I bought and, again, see how long it takes for them to figure it out, haha!

Again, if anybody has any other ideas or ways they told their parents, please share! Oh, and if it helps, this won't be their first grandchild. I have a 9-year-old nephew, so anything saying grandma/grandpa won't really help since they're already grandparents. But it will be their long-awaited second grandchild! Thanks guys =)

Love your bootie idea. You could also find your old / bye a play oven, put a bun inside, give it to your mom and ask her what's inside. [Of course the crafty thing to say is make your own papier mache one]
You could also make a nest and place it very prominantly in you house so when your mom asks you can say you're waiting for the stork.
Of course in Victorian times it was very bad form to talk about such personal matters so the way that a woman let people know that a little stanger was coming to stay was to start knitting baby clothes.
Either way all the best.

I like the bootie idea.

T-shirts can work well though, someone else wore one with Preggo spaghetti sauce on it.  You could also put an image of the cabage patch stork on one. 

Or the I'm so crafty I'm making people would be good too.  The nice thing about a t-shirt compared to the booties is that there won't be that awkward pause while they try to figure it out, it will pop out more organically, I think.

Good luck and let us know what you decide to do, and your parents' reactions.

I bought 2 bibs - one that said something like "I Love Grandma" and one that said "If you think I'm cute, you should see my Grandpa" or something.  I told my folks I had found a xmas gift I'd wrapped and forgot to give them (It was Jan or Feb) - kind of a lame pretense, oh well.

For Father's Day I also gave my dad a mug with a picture of the ultrasound on it that said "See you in August Grandpa!"  (the irony is, she arrived 6 wks early - beginning of July!)
