Thank you all so much for your advice!
One thing I keep forgetting is that it IS good news to share. I think one thing holding me back is getting backlash from my older sister and brother in law since we're not in a house yet, much less one that's big enough for two children. However I'd rather not divulge all the specifics to them as to why, as if it's any of their business. So in the meantime they speculate.
Can you tell I don't really care for them too much!?!?! But that's a whole other story
The more I think about it the more I realize that if it's just my immediate family it's not a big deal. One person here said something very smart a long time ago and it was something like only tell the people who you wouldn't mind knowing should you miscarry. Meaning, do you want your whole office to know, etc. It seemed like good guidelines to go by regardless.
When I was pregnant with my little guy, everyone knew right away because I had called my husband at my mom's house to tell him. My sister answered the phone and knew what was going on, they knew I was ttc.... etc etc. My dad was skeptical because it was so early (one week post ovulation)... I knew I didn't want to tell them immediately because last month we thought we were pregnant (got positives, then they got lighter, then af came) and then weren't.
Last night we were at dinner with my parents and my son kept telling them he had a baby in his tummy and that it was going to be peach, not brown. They wouldn't catch on lol!!!
So I think I'll tell my sister; I'm sure she's not going to care if I tell my parents. Last time we didn't tell family until we had a heartbeat at least, so around 10 weeks we sent out a .wav with the heartbeat.
Today we bought a little stuffed camel at the dollar store for the baby. My son didn't spend too much time picking it out and didn't say anything about it afterwards so we'll see how that goes. I want to start taking belly pics with that and him and when the baby is born, take pics with the baby and animal. Was that a run on sentence?!
Sorry for the ramble!
