Hubby When I bought HPTs from ept.com they sent me a 'tattoo' of two love birds with a heart. Hubby saw it and I told him I wouldnt use it until I got a +! So I put the tattoo on my wrist the morning of my + and waited until he noticed! (:
Close Friends Most of my close friends live anywhere from an hour to 2200 miles away! I sent a picture text of "buns in the oven" and most of them understood what I ment!
Family My grandma and uncle so far the only ones to know since they are the only two who knew my struggle with cc and getting pg. I sent them a picture of the + (: We will be telling my family after my brothers graduation [which was yesterday] and his family after his brothers wedding [july] so that we dont "steal" anyones thunder & hopefully I'll be far enough along to avoid m/c!!
Work I am a nanny, me and the family I work for are pretty close so I told them Friday with cookies and a card (: they were excited and supportive! [Amy my boss knows a little about my troubles and such]
Other Im just going to let the word spread on its own. I really dont want to call every great aunt susan whom ive met 3 times in my life, so I'l leave that up to word of mouth!!
Hubby - i sent him a pic at work. crappy way to do it, but he thought it was negative. this morning he was annoying me. i told him, "annoying your sick and pregnant wife is not smart this early..." the look he gave me was priceless. then there was a "what?! pregnant!?" i'm glad i didn't miss that
Close Friends - my close friends got an email with the test. of course THEY could see it lol
Family - haven't told, waiting for 12 weeks
Work - haven't told, waiting for 12 weeks
Other - haven't told, waiting for 12 weeks
Hubby... I went and bougt DD a Big Sister shirt... he went what?? Really?? He was kinda shocked.
Close Friends.. So far have only told my BFF because I needed someone to look a the lines with me!
Family... We have only told Josh's cousin who is sworn to secrecy.
Work... Don't work
Other... I'm telling DD there's a baby in my belly... she points to her belly and rubs it and goes Baby.
"TATTOO" for hubby to see
Love the tattoo!
Hubby- He knew there was a possibility we'd be pregnant, but kind of doubted it. He works overnights and so I took a test at 5 am then texted him asking how sure he was about whether we were pregnant or not, and obviously he got it from that. He made me leave the test on the counter so he could "double check" when he got home. I can tell he's happy overall though, because he's already tossing baby name ideas out! Another reason I knew Jeff was excited was that the same day we got the positive test I overheard him on the phone with his closest friend and he kept saying things like "well the babies will be close together and it'll be hard, but we did want more than one and Ronan is such a good baby" etc. LOVED hearing that
I haven't told anyone else yet- though I will tell one of my best friends this weekend because she's coming over to see Ronan (her God son) and because it's my birthday, and we told her right away with Ronan also.
I think we'll wait to tell everyone else until after our first appointment June 29th, because I'll get a better idea of our actual EDD, an ultrasound picture probably, and then we'll probably wait till after my little sister's wedding July 2nd as to not steal her thunder! She's pregnant too- due Nov 21st, so I think it'll be cool that I'll be pregnant with her because when I was pregnant with Ronan my older sister was pregnant at the same time- kinda fun! One thing that kind of stinks is that after our "protection malfunction" when I thought I could be pregnant, Jeff, not believing me, joked to my mom and my older sister that I thought I was pregnant- so they were asking me for a week if I found out or not because they were excited, and I sort of lied and said I got my period. Jeff wants to suprise them with it later like we did with Ronan, which I think is fun- so I just wish he hadn't gotten it in their heads!
You guys have fun stories! Every time I've POAS, my hubby has been on the other side of the bathroom door saying, 'Well? WELL????'
I haven't planned anything this time. I'll cross that bridge when the stick says I'm pg. lol
