It's very nice to see that I am not the only one who wants to tell soon! For me, I think that stems from a want for other people to be excited for me... You know, to help me be excited for myself when I feel less than enthusiastic.
I think having positive vibes floating around is a good thing. So I think for now I am going to only tell the people that I know will be really happy about it. My mom might give me a well meaning roll of the eyes, but she'll be happy for me... She needs to know, too... We bake on the weekend for the local farmer's market. I don't think I have the energy right now to bake all day. I'll tell my dad, and the in-laws soon. My in laws are baby junkies.
Thanks Maerlyn for the helpful post... I think I'm going to tell my little sister as soon as I can get a ahold of her. We had overlapping pregnancies on our last babies(her first baby, we both had girls) and I gave birth first. It's her turn to go first this time.
We were helpful to eachother... In fact, she followed in my footsteps and had a UC. We're both planning another UC, so I think it works out well in the end that we can be there for each other. I think she'll be happy to have another close cousin for her littles. I am going to wait a while on the two sisters that just had losses... While I think my oldest would understand, I don't think she's in a place to be very congratulatory. We're a very empathic family and I just don't want to feel her discomfort right now. My other sister... I just don't know what to do there. She loves
my kids, but was always right there chiming in that I shouldn't have more(and I would agree, thought I wasn't, really). We have very different lifestyles. And I know she took her loss very hard... It's going to be rough for her, I think, to know I'm having another. *sigh* I think that is one of the hardest things for me to get past right now, is telling her. I love her so much, and was really excited for her... It just feels weird... I got pregnant just around the time she lost her baby. I'll wrap my head around it eventually, I'm sure. And she will too. But in the meantime I want a lot of frivolously gleeful responses. Stocking up, ya know?
