So my dad was here visiting last week, and I couldn't help myself, I had to tell him! He loves babies and he loves being a grandfather - he hates that we're so far away, but he was so happy for us! My mom couldn't come this trip because of work, so I skyped her to tell her too and she was also really excited and thrilled for us.
So this past weekend we spent with my in-laws... (can you tell where this is going?) We were trying to find an opportunity all weekend to tell them, but I was so nauseous and exhausted that I spend most of the time in bed and DH was finding it hard to tell them without me... So finally towards Sat evening when I asked my MIL if she maybe had a sucking candy, she was like, "wow! You really haven't been feeling well all weekend!" So I said, (I call her Imma, Hebrew from Mom), "Imma, come on! I think you know what's going on here!" So then she says, "well I suspected, but now that you're saying something... wow. Oh my!" Well she was smiling, because I mean, it's not a bad thing... but she then went on to speak to both me and DH about when we were going to decide on some form of birth control!
I have bad reactions to hormones, and a lot of the other options cause irritation and discomfort, so I chart my fertility. But with 4 little kids, sometimes if you get a chance you have to take it even if it's risky!! And we're not opposed to a big family... but anyway, I don't have to justify myself to you guys, it was just so strange to experience the drastic difference between my parents' reaction and DH's...:confused:
