Soooooo.... I've been trying to think of a creative way to tell our families. I know I'm totally jumping the gun, but it's keeping me distracted, so whatever!
If we get our BFP this month, we'll be telling (only) immediate family at Thanksgiving. I was thinking of having DP wear this shirt I designed
and seeing how long it takes the fam to catch on. I've already designed it, just trying to decide whether ordering so we'd have it in time will jinx us (I'm only 7dpo)!
Should I go ahead and order, so I have it on hand to gift her with whenever we do get our BFP? I think it's nice, because we could both have one, and it's relevant not only while I'm pregnant, but well after future LO is born. What do you all think of the idea?
To give a frame of reference for where this idea came from... once pregnant, I'm going to try to be really sensitive all along the way about how some parts of her not being the bio mom are going to be a challenge, and i think having her be the one to make the announcement will start things off on a good foot. 'cause she's going to be a mommy, too!! I want people to fawn all over her (perhaps more than I want them to fawn over me) when the happy day finally comes.
How did some of you mamas/papas/parents share the big news??? I love hearing about all the creative ways there are to "tell!"
