So glad that's over. It went better than I'd expected. Jon's whole family is one boy, one girl. I wasn't sure how receptive they'd be to breaking that mold of the "perfect" family.
My FIL actually told me he was always kind if sad about not having a third. That shocked me! And it made me feel atom better. Not that I need their approval but his parents are the closest family we have (an hour away) so it's nice to be peaceful at least.
I also told my brother. He isn't home for Christmas this year (neither am I) and so I thought maybe this would cheer him up. He keeps texting me that I'm a liar and he doesn't believe me. Hahahaha. He's such a goofball.
My family Christmas is Sunday. I won't be there (we live 800 miles away) but my best friend is very close to the family and she is going. She will deliver the special cards I had made to my mom and sister. Then all the hiding will be over, finally!!!!
Congratulations. We told our family on Sunday. They were very excited. I have held several losses and I thought they would be upset that I was pregnant again. It feels so good to be "out".
Good luck with everything.
