Can we discuss birth announcements??

I want to tell most of my friends that I'm expecting in their Christmas cards.
I don't want to do so some kind of cutesy thing with baby shoes and bows and pictures of me holding a sonogram with a santa hat photoshopped onto it - I think those are really sweet, but I'm young, single, and most of my friends are total "yuppies", and they wouldn't "get it" except for my handful who are already parents.

I'm considering just signing them "Alex & Baby due June 2013", or just after writing "Happy Holidays, I miss you, hope all is well, how's law school/married life/living in China/being a rockstar/your sex change going?" just writing "Exciting news - I'm expecting a baby in June".

I'm starting to see why people just put their sonogram pictures up on facebook and let everyone know that way I don't want it to seem impersonal but I also don't want to seem like I'm shoving it in their faces and looking for attention, or something.

I also have to make sure these cards are PERFECTLY timed because I a) want them to arrive before Christmas and b) don't want them to arrive before I tell my grandma in person I'm expecting, which will be December 13th. I think I'll send them out the 10th?
