We've been telling them that we're not ready, as we didn't want pressure for grandkids (this will be the first grandkid on both my side and DH's side). Any clever ideas for how to spring it on them?
I really want to tell my best friend, as she just texted me and said she's pregnant again- and due in early May- same as me!!! But DH wants me to keep it quiet so I'm respecting that.
Once I get proof that there is a little baby in there (ultrasound or doppler) I'll probably be more comfortable telling people.
We won't announce it to the world (aka facebook) until around Halloween.
My best friend is pregnant too! She is about 6 or 7 weeks ahead of me. Our kids are close already but it will be cool to have kids really close in age. Her kids are 4 and 10 months and my DD is 19 months.
I've been bad about telling people about my pregnancy so far. I have been kinda just telling people as it comes up and in no particular order. My best friend, hubby's best friend, a few of my close girl cousins know, and one of hubby's cousins know but none of our parents know or siblings. Oops! I suppose I will have to tell before it gets around to them. I actually have no relationship with my parents or brother (which is both sad but healthy and better than having a relationship with them) so I don't know when my parents will find out or from whom. My parents and brother also have no relationship with any of my cousins, etc. so I am sure it will take a while for them to find out. I guess they will maybe find out somehow through facebook or something. I don't have facebook but maybe from someone else. It's been a year since I have even heard from my parents so it is weird to think they have no idea.
Anyway, we are extremely close to DH's parents and family and they literally live a mile away and are really involved in DD's life. I actually just got a call from DH's grandma wanting to know if I want to come over and have pie tonight and I am trying to weigh my pukey level and decide if I should go or not.
Sorry, this is starting to get rambley, but I am 8 weeks tomorrow already and it seems like my bloating has gone down so now I feel like if I wanted to hide it or wait to tell people I wouldn't really show for a while this time. Plus we have been having sweatshirt/sweater weather so that makes it easier too.
