When we talked about this before we started TTC we planned on waiting. Yeah, that didn't happen. Hubby knew right away, as I felt it would be a nice way to wake him up on our anniversary (yes, I got my BFP on my 8th anniversary). Most of my coworkers knew that we were trying, so when I went in to work last Thursday with a permagrin on my face, they knew. I didn't have to say it, lol. My online horse community knows, too.
But so far, no family. We're telling my mom first and I want it to be in person. She works a normal M-F, 9-5 job, I work random 12-hr night shifts, and hubby's in school full time, so finding a time when all three of us are available isn't easy. Luckily, she's able to take a 1/2 day at work this Friday and is coming up to our place under the premise of using some gift certificates we both got to a local meat market before we forget about them and to enjoy our new TV. Every time I talk to her on the phone, I swear my tongue is bleeding by the time we hang up from biting it so much, lol. After she knows, we'll call my dad (cross-country truck driver), and then the rest of the family can be told.
I have to share how we're going to tell my mom. I've controlled my horrible baby fever over the past few years by buying stuff... hitting up consignment shops for clothes, stocking up on cloth diapers, etc. Whenever I have a good haul, I show it off to her. Well, I recently had a good haul at Goodwill up in Madison that I haven't shown her, yet. I'm going to sneak in a onesie that I made that says "My First Christmas" with the comment of I just couldn't refuse it. She'll make a comment like "How do you know you'll even be able to use this?", and that's when I'll spring it on her. Hubby will be poised just outside the room with the camera ready to go to try and capture the moment on camera.
I just have to make it to Friday...
