Wow, you guys are all getting so far along! How exciting that you are starting to feel kicks and flutters, or seeing them hopping around!
Wow, you haven't told your brothers yet Juneau?
We plan to tell MIL (and everyone else) on Aug 23rd if everything goes well at the u/s on Aug 21st. There is a family party that day so it seems like a good time. I am b*tchily not telling MIL ahead of the rest of the family this time as she is annoying me beyond belief.
I realize that I am being a hormonal b*tch but quite frankly I don't care and she deserves it since she never thinks of anyone else but herself.
My parents are arriving from Vancouver on Oct 7th to see us and my sister and her baby (9 months). We will tell them then. Actually I will be 16.5 weeks so I guess they will probably just be able to see when they arrive!
Oct 7th is the day that the PG I lost was due and it is also the day my kid's caregiver goes away for a month and my kids will have to go to someone else for a month (I haven't figured this part out yet).
You'd think with my parents here for 2 weeks and my ILs living 4 blocks away from us (my MIL works 3.5 days a week and my FIL is retired) I wouldn't be stressing about finding someone to look after my kids but alas, neither set of grandparents would ever offer to look after their grandchildren. DS will be in school half days and DD full days.
Boy, aren't I a bundle of
My sister does know, I told her the morning after I found out as SHE is happy and supportive but she has a 9 month old herself so she is not able to come over for an hour or two so I can sleep, KWIM? Which is what I really need right now.
