Thanks, GingerPanda! I just made one of the scan pictures my profile pic. Our next scan isn't until 20 weeks, but I will get to hear the hb with the doppler on July 19. Get ready for the u/s, though, I was so emotional! Wish I could use the machine myself and just sit there and cry my eyes out and look at my baby! I was trying so hard to keep back the tears and it actually took me a while to see the hb because I was a bit teary-eyed. Like a big baby!

It's not all that exciting but here are our plans:

My family - I am decorating a onesie for my 6 mo nephew and will give it to him tomorrow at my moms. It will say something about him being a big cousin.

In-laws - Decorating a magnetic picture frame and we will discreetly put it on their refrigerator and see how long it takes them to notice. I think it will say something like "You thought Kenny (my hubby) was a mess...just wait." or "Grand baby #3 coming soon." Not sure.

I'm open to any suggestions as I don't feel like these are all-star ideas. We have told them all that we are stopping by tomorrow, so it's not a big dinner or anything. Our families are pretty casual.

What is your plan?

Welcome, Dragonfly! I'll add you in a minute. You must be so excited to be due soon! Did you ever get your son's school situation figured out? (EDIT: Just saw you mentioned it on the TTC thread. That's great that you're all sorted.)

Ashley, I think those are cute ideas. I thought about the big cousin shirt for telling my SIL and her 2yo daughter.

We're telling MIL at IKEA.

She's never been, and has gotten sick or had something come up every time we tried to make plans to go for like two years. So since now we're pregnant, I figured we would meet her there today, saying that we are combining our two hobby rooms into one, and are looking for new furniture to put in the spare room. We'll go through, looking at bookshelves and dressers, trying to decide where things would look the best for the room we're filling. Then, we'll get to the baby section, walk to a crib, and ask her "How do you think this would look in the corner?"

Aw, those are all cute ideas! I am planning on telling my family this evening too. I'm not set on how to do it yet, but better think fast!

I'm sure there are tons of ideas on YouTube! I sometimes sit and watch people telling their families they're pregnant for hours.

With all the hormones in my body now, it makes me cry though, so I haven't done it in a while.

Ashley, I did the same thing at my first ultrasound and again when I first heard the heartbeat. They are prepared for that with plenty of tissues at the ready.

All of everyone's ideas for telling the family are great. We had been trying for a while and everyone pretty much knew so we basically just blurted it out when the time was right. We did have a bunch of family over for Easter this year and just put up an ultrasound picture on the fridge and waited for them to figure it out.

Sorry for the multiple posts...just read the first two pages.

Ginger, Twins...yikes. I always thought I wanted twins. I forgot about that possibility for you with the clomid. I'm looking forward to your scan date!!

As for whether to cut or not cut, we would not have. My DH isn't either and I agree that there's no medical necessity.

I look forward to getting to know all of you throughout our heathen pregnancies!
