Hi everyone! I just found out on the 23rd that I am pregnant! I took the home pregnancy 3 times just to be sure as I could not believe it after almost a year of TTC. I went for a blood test on the 24th to confirm, and my OB emailed me the results that it is indeed positive and I have our first appointment on Nov. 11th which is 2 weeks away!
We just told his parents and sister this past Friday. We tried to come up with a fun/interesting way to tell them but since it was short notice and we wanted to tell them soon, we went to Babies R' Us and bought some "Mother To Be" Tea and at dinnertime, I said, "Oh so we bought some tea we think you would like." I placed the tea box on the table and they had to look at it twice and asked if I was pregnant.
My dad is currently out of the country and will be back in about a week, so I'm still trying to figure out how to announce it to him. My husband and I will probably wait until the first checkup to announce to our other close family members but still figuring out how to announce to them as well.
Any creative or fun stories from you all on how you let your family know?
We did a special video montage of family...and sent it out as a christmas gift (in 2011), and at the end of it...it said...'But wait...there's one more thing...a new addition joining our family in June 2012' (and on the screen flashed an ultrasound picture. It was awesome, and really emotional
i as well just found out we are expecting im 5 weeks today and are going to wait till christmas if i can hold out to tell family
Congrats! And thanks for the add! My husband and I are thinking maybe to announce to the rest of our family around Thanksgiving, though we are for sure all usually together at X-Mas. i don't know if I can keep it in and wait that long!
The only people we are making a fuss with are our parents, I will be 12 weeks on Christmas Eve so we plan to give my mum two Lego bricks for Christmas. She's always joked on that if my DH got me pregnant again she'd take two bricks to his manhood I'm hoping she'll work it out lol.
I'm thinking for the in laws I might give them a 6 slot photo frame, they currently have 5 grandchildren, I'm going to put a picture of each child in and in the last one just put a note saying 'save the space for July 2014'.
And we don't have Facebook so everyone else can do the whole 'is she getting fat or is she pregnant again?' thing!
Congrats! I'm 5w4d and we're going to wait it out until our first prenatal appointment at least, just to make sure things are going well... it's too bad because I live in Quebec and there's a shortage of doctors, so I have to wait until Dec 2nd! I'll be over 10 weeks... such a long time to wait. But at least by then we'll know what's going on and feel confident telling the family.
I really want to make it special this time. I'm just so scared to announce it yet! lol after the m/c last year I think like some of the ladies are saying I will wait until I've had my appointment first
