I get to announce to my La Leche League chapter meeting tomorrow (I'm a leader applicant), although they'll be told to keep it quiet. I'm excited because I know they'll be supportive. Sadly, it's my family right now who are likely to be judgemental (my siblings) and unhappy (my older kids). I don't like waiting, I want to share this thing that is so all consuming to be right now. Don't know how I'll hide the no alcohol again on Thanksgiving. My hubby and I are going out this weekend, maybe I can convince him it's time.
For one, it's a surprise pregnancy, right? So, if your kids are unhappy, that's too bad. The same goes for your judgemental family. It's not like you did it on purpose. They'll all get used to it eventually. It'll be OK. Oh and even if it had been planned, that's between you and your husband.
I hope for you that your hubby is willing to spill the news because it sounds like it's pretty hard for you to keep it quiet. If I had older kids, I would have to tell them so they would know that if I don't feel well or feel tired, I have a good reason. It'd be nice if you didn't have to play the "pretend to drink" game.
I think my family thinks I'm a little odd for having another, but they don't say anything negative to me, so good. LOL Thankfully, my kids are little and they just go with the flow.
