April fools?

Anybody planning anything or had anything done to them today?

DH and I were thinking that we would print off an U/S pic of twins and tell everybody that I wasn't feeling well and had an U/S done at the hospital and they found twins! Too much effort though!

My niece posted on fb that she was expecting. She caught me for a moment then I caught on. So I took the "liberty" to say I was expecting too, lol. Don't think many people will believe it since I just wrote it under her post. Jokes on them LOL. I haven't made the official fb announcement yet.

Oh Erin, you totally should make your announcement today Lol
I joked with DH that it was too bad our ultrasound is tomorrow and not today because we could tell everyone there were twins but I don't think we'll do anything.

Erin-I agree, you should totally announce today.

No April Fool's jokes here. Chris has a big milestone at work today so he won't even be around.

Erin you should totally make the announcement today- especially the twin part. I bet everyone's reaction would be hilarious when they find out that it's not an April Fool's joke! I thought about putting something on facebook about twins, but I'm friends with DH's aunt on there and she would probably think it was true and then the whole family would be in an uproar :rolleyes:.

Well, 5 years ago, a friend called and said that their little baby girl was born (she was due the 4th), everyone she called thought it was a joke, but it wasn't. She had an emergency c-section.

Then 3 years ago, they delivered their second daughter via scheduled c-section, (she was due the 7th).

Today in a little less than an hour, they are delivering their 3rd daughter via scheduled c-section (don't recall when she's due).

NO JOKE!!!

My husband and I think they are ridiculous for PLANNING their deliveries on the same day as the first (especially today).

She has been joking this whole time that she's only fertile in late July. :rolleyes:

I'll post pictures as soon as she's got them up on FB.

Oh, and 5 years ago, they stopped calling people after the 4th or 5th thought it was a joke. They finished their announcement calls the next day when people would believe them.

That is WILD! I don't think I'd want all of my kids to have the same birthday, let alone April Fool's Day. One of my best friends from when I was a kid has an April Fool's birthday and she was never a big fan of it. That is really funny that no one believed them, though.

Janelle, that is insane about your friend having her kids all on the same day, and via c-section no less! To me that's just super hard to believe, I wouldn't want all my kids born on the same day lol. Wow.

I thought about doing the whole I'm pregnant thing too, and making a folder called Baby #5 and posting one of my pregnancy tests, but nah. I haven't made the big Facebook announcement yet either, and I'm sure my MIL woulda been on the phone right away bugging me if it was real or not. Woulda been good though since people would have expected it as a joke and I really am Lol
