Just thought I'd share a conversation that I had with my MIL on Thanksgiving. Now, we're planning on waiting to share the news that we're pregnant until Christmas (you know, wrap up the news as a gift.) I'm due June 10th and there's an out-of-state family wedding that we're expected to attend on June 1st. MIL was asking me if DH and I plan to attend because she would reserve the plane tickets together. I blew it off and said we'd figure it out once we received the actual invitation (so far we just received a save the date card.) She then started complaining about how she didn't want to go to this wedding and she really needed excuses not to go. Then, out of the blue, she said "I know! You should have a baby on June 1st!" I have no idea why she thought of that. She has no idea that I'm pregnant - we never told her when we planned to TTC. She then went on to calculate when I would be due if I got pregnant now and she realized that if I got pregnant this week there's no way I'd be due June 1st. She laughed a little and then moved on to other excuses she could come up with for skipping the wedding. I was trying so hard not to laugh and she must have thought I loved all her other ideas because I know I was sitting there with a big grin on my face!
