I'm not sure that I can wait this long to tell family-but how awesome would it be to wait until april fools to announce a baby on the way? I'd be a little over 13 weeks. (i think..haven't been to the dr's yet to actually confirm, but that's my guess.)
Seriously though, I don't know how long I can keep it a secret. Yet, i don't want everyone knowing too soon-because that makes for such a long pregnancy..lots of well meaning questions, every conversation has to do with baby planning. (speaking from previous experience.) I also, more than anything, want to make sure that i'm "out of the woods", since I had a miscarriage last year, if that makes any sense.
I'm really sick though, and people might start wondering what the heck is up when i'm constantly running to the bathroom. My two boys (8 and 7) are already wondering what's wrong with me. They're here all day because they're homeschooled, which makes it even trickier!
One of them picked up my vitamin bottle and asked "how come there's a pregnant girl on your medicine?" I just replied "because they're good for pregnant people too", which seems to have sufficed, for now.
When do you guys plan on telling the family? Your parents, and his? Any fun up your sleeves? This will be my parent's 5th grandchild, but my husband's parents' first. So I do want it to be special for them.
