So, I’m looking online at pregnancy stuff as usual, and saw a post on a website asking people how they announced their pregnancy to their husbands, and families.
Immediately my mind went to:
Then it went to that scene in The Departed where the girl handed Matt Damon the sonogram picture…
I wondered how I would tell John and our families when the time comes.
Some ideas I saw online were:
- give the person you’re telling an “I Love ____” baby bib – cute idea, and doable, but do i have the restraint to wait? – I can see me just buying a #1 uncle mug (we’re a mug family) for my brother and throwing it at him during a visit home one day
- give DH a gift wrapped sonogram photo – this is a cute idea, but I want John at my first sonogram appointment
I would love to do something sweet or cutesy, but I think I’ll probably be too giggedy geeked to do anything but call them and scream into the phone as soon as I see a double line.
Also the question of when comes into play. John and my mom and dad will know first, but when will I let friends and extended family know? I’m thinking after the 1st trimester as passed is probably best…just in case. Sorry but you guys are gunna have to wait too. And I’m holding out until I start to show bigtime before I tell anyone at work.
How did you / will you announce your pregnancy? What were people’s reactions? Any pregnancy announcing ideas for me?
