Just wondering how everyone announced their pregnancies??
Me and my Hubby have been trying for our 2nd baby and have got our BFP 2 weeks ago and we are so happy however my Mum is a ver practical person and i know she wont be thrilled with the news as she will be like "going to be hard work having a a toddler and a baby" "how will you manage financially" so not really excited to tell her and my Dad!
My DH parents are great and are very loving and will be pleased however my DH brother and g.f have just had twins and lost one so feeling quite anxious about telling them.
so in a nutsell not looking forward to breaking our good news!
I though about sending my mum and his Mum flowers and putting a card in breaking the news!?? can anyone give some ideas or inspiration???
We put our DS in a shirt that said big brother. Met for dinner and let them notice. We will have 2 only 11 months apart. We knew there would be some comments but we don't care. Just shut it down right away
We recently had to announce our 5th pregnancy to my parents who never took it well, although my inlaws couldn't be happier.
To tell you the truth, the blunt approach is sometimes the best way to do it, just out right tell them. I was in tears after the call to my parents, but now they know, they are fine about it, although still think hubby and I don't know what contraception is lol
I hope you find a way to tell them soon and believe me, you will find a way to make things work, if that is what your worries are . Congratulations
In June we took a test and were so excited with the results we called everyone and told them right way. Then a few weeks later we had to call back and say 'nevermind' This time we waited until we were past that time and had everyone over for a BBQ. We had a cake that said "Shhhhh, Kyden (our almost 2 yr old) has a secret!" When they saw the cake they turned to my son who proudly lifted his shirt to show his belly where I had written 'big brother'. It took a second and then the tears started. Ky had not idea what was going on but was excited to be part of it.
I know how you feel. My in laws and my parents are really excited but when i told my sister she was like "are you f*cking kidding? your pregnant again?" so i was like "wow, really?" And i know my moms side of the family is gonna be upset cuz they are like don't have another baby till you graduate college.
the way i see it is your starting your own family and if people dont agree with how you have your family then maybe they don't need to be apart of it. theres no need to have negative vibes surrounding your pregnancy and family. it may be kinda harsh but this is how me and my hubby are approaching things. i love my family but i think they should respect how i choose to have my family EVEN if they dont agree.
The way we are announcing our second pregnancy is at my daughter's 3rd birthday. i will be either 12/13 weeks so hopefully out of my 1st trimester. We're making her a shirt and just gonna let her walk around in it until someone notices. we plan on switching the shirts in the middle of the party after cake is served. Then have her announce that she's gonna be a big sister!!
Thanks for all your wise words! Think I am going to have flowers delivered with a note in saying congratulations your going to be grandparents again or other option is to have a BBQ and have everyone over and have a t.shirt on my little girl saying I am going to be a big sister!
