Kksy - Yes, my mom has a great sense of humor and she's truly excited for us. I can't imagine being team green, as it's more commonly called where I'm from! I want to know the sex right away so I can start using their chosen name, and it will definitely influence the things I buy. I never knew until recently, but my mom didn't know what she was having when she was pregnant with my older sister because they could never get a clear image of her nether regions when she went in for scans! So she was involuntarily team green.

My baby names so far are:
Cecelia Rose - We agreed on Cecelia together, and Rose is for my grandmother Rosie.
Alessandra Victoria - I don't know how he feels about it. I love the name Alessandra and his mom's name is Sandra; my middle name is Victoria and I love it and want to pass it down.
Christian Salvatore - Christian is set in stone for me, but we're not 100% committed to the middle name. I love Salvatore and my husband has an uncle by that name, so it's meaningful.

MissWaiting - She's the best! My mom will be one of the first to know. I know she can keep a secret. I want to make it a special announcement and surprise her when the time comes.

LadyV- yea my mum and his mum will be first to know but will be sworn to secrecy as I already know how I want to announce that we are pregnant which will be fun.
There is a trend here where you announce with a picture then you get another with bump then another with baby so hoping to do that but with a twist as I already model but I model vintage fashion so 40s to 50s but get the odd historical shoot to it's a hobby get a couple of shoots a year but don't make money from it so would love to include my love of vintage in there

MissWaiting- I know my mom can keep a secret, but MIL will be ready to tell the world, so I plan to wait longer to tell her... Probably 12 weeks at the earliest. I look at announcement ideas all the time! I definitely plan on doing something cute for our immediate family and even want to surprise my hubby. Then I'll probably think of a creative way to announce on social media, and do a maternity shoot when I have a bump. I also do some modeling! My husband got me into acting as well. That's awesome

See it's my mum that will want to tell the world but his mum will keep it secret for as long as we ask her to but my mum god love her will slip up so I'm going to wait a few weeks to tell her but need to think of a way to break it to my mum and his mum and also him would love to do something special for him which will be hard because if I sort something now so I'm ready he will find it haha I can't even hide stuff in my draws because he goes in there when I need him to grab stuff for me

bkb- the beach sounds like fun! Do you mind me asking what area you're going to? I'm planning a surprise girls trip to a beach...somewhere, no idea where yet.... with my mom and niece for next year to celebrate my Mom's 60th. I live in Missouri so about as far from the ocean as you can be and always looking for suggestions lol. It sounds like it's going to be a fun year with the wedding and a new little nephew! Will this be your first time becoming an aunt?

Lady- I definitely couldn't wait to find out the sex with my oldest. There is so much uncertainty as a FTM that getting to find out and properly prepare helps bring a lot of peace! With my second, my DH really wanted to wait to find out so we kept it as a surprise. It actually wasn't hard to do (because my toddler kept me busy lol) and that moment when DS2 was born was extra special. I think if we go for #3 I want to wait to find out again. I love your names and naming them after people makes it extra special. My oldest is named for both of our fathers and my seconds middle name is one of my BIL's name (his godfather as well).

misswaiting-that is great that you are your own advocate! i learned years ago that your doctors work for you and it's their job to listen to you. If they don't, then they aren't the right care provider for you! What do you do for work? Evelyn is a beautiful name! How many children are you hoping to have? The vintage photo shoot sounds like a great idea! Those will be really special memories to look back on one day to help connect your pregnancy and baby to another area you are passionate about.

AFM- we got to go out on a date tonight! it's only our 3rd since the baby was born (he is 16 months next week). In the past month he has started the process of self-weaning so I can leave him for a few hours at a time now. We are pretty much down to first thing in the morning, before each of his two naps and before bed (about 50% of the time he wakes up once overnight for a quick 15-20 min feed). Sounds like a lot but its significantly reduced from a month ago . I'm definitely fine with taking weaning nice and slow (it took 6 weeks with my oldest). Gives my body time to adjust lol. I am hoping by 18 months he is 100% weaned.

Hope you ladies have a great start to your week!!

Yea I love Evelyn and OH does to. We want 3 but it depends on how my body copes basically. The doctors I have I used to work with one he was the doctor the attended the nursing home I worked in then the other is the pain team consultant. I don't work at the moment I've just moved 40 miles away to a new city but it was to far to travel back and to to my last job because my travel costs aswell it wasn't worth it so we haven't decided yet if it's worth me finding a job now with us being so close to ttc because I'm going to stay home with baby

MissWaiting - There are so many cute ways to announce to the future grandparents! I've seen cute frames for the ultrasound pictures or onesies that say they can't wait to meet their grandparents, etc.. And you can get so many things custom made on Etsy! That is my plan for my husband. I think I'm going to get a onesie made that says "Baby OurLastName" on it and put the positive pregnancy test and a note with it saying, "Good job, daddy!" I have a lot of good hiding places, fortunately! He never finds his hidden gifts.

lady- that is a cute idea! i saw one announcement on Youtube where they mailed the test and little gift to the dad so that they couldn't find it in the house. She played like she didn't know what was in the package and he thought he just had a random gift from someone until he opened it up

That's awesome I don't know how I'll do it need to get searching.
He had abit of a shock today we met up with friends had a day out in the sun walking round an island that you can get to when I tide goes out on foot but then we quickly nipped to day hi to 2 of his friends I hadn't had chance to meet yet who are a couple and he mentioned we were planning to try for a baby next year and his guy friend totally dropped on hi that they were currently trying but in the not trying not preventing way and had been for a long time so it's made him think more about us having a baby in a very good way

Announcing is sooo much fun! I shouted at DH to come and look at the test. Too excited to hold it in. I want to surprise him next time.

I told work for my personal safety the next day. Well only my supervisors. I was 12 weeks when we told our parents and all the family. We announced on Christmas day. Had a "card" saying "best christmas gift ever!" We added baby "....." due July 2017. The center of card had an ornament shape which is where we had scan photo.

We didn't think it was right to tell one parent and not the others. Feelings might get hurt. My mom was busting to post on facebook lol. His mom was excited but it better with secrets.

I think we will probably have a onesie for V saying "promoted to big sister _________". A little cliche but I like it.

Gender reveal was fun too. I think we will find out gender again. I think I'd like black balloons with either pink or blue paint inside. Then throw at a white canvas. We did smoke "grenade" last time. It was nice but I want sonething different.
