We know our older kids (almost 22,16 and 11) are going to be very unhappy with the news. Particularly the 16 year old. So, we're trying to address some of the things that they will be concerned about now, before telling them. Our hope is that I don't start having obvious pregnancy symptoms before we're ready. I was nauseous for most of the evening last night. DH is so worried that it'll become obvious before we're ready. Anyone else in a similar boat?
Oh, just have to share...we had a special adults only dinner with my siblings and their partners the other night. One of my sisters and her husband we haven't been able to see very much lately for various reasons. My BIL was being funny and asking all these silly questions to catch up with us. I about spit my drink out when everyone asked if we still had the same number of kids! My DH and I also had an elaborate plan worked out for the wine we knew was going to be served. We made sure we had matching glasses and when he had drank most of his, we swapped them when no one was looking. No suspicions raised. However, one of my sisters who had brought this great dessert with ice cream and this raspberry compote, announced after serving them that they had schnapps in them. Shortly after, my hubby went into the kitchen and I jumped up on the pretense of getting a napkin and swapped with him again. Fortunately, he had eaten most of his. Then he just finished mine off and I only took a couple small bites.
Man, I will be glad when the news is out and I don't have to be sneaky about things!
