I am new here and have only started TTC. I am a 32 year old mother of a 12 year old son from a previous marriage and after 2 years of being married to my high school sweetheart (after a long time apart from each other) we have decided to try and have our own child together.
When he told me that he was thinking about it I was thrilled, but I did not want to get my hopes up in case he decided not to. But on Christmas morning he gave me a copy of What to Expect When You are Expecting - which was his way of telling me he had decided to go ahead and try to have a baby. We are both 32 and have an active lifestyle so we have a lot of changes coming to us, but I know it will be worth it.
We were so excited with our decision that we are wanting to tell the world, but we are not telling some of our family members as we know they will hound us about it. We have already told many of our friends who have celebrated with us and are thrilled. However I told my mom and one of my brothers last night and I did not get the reaction I expected. I have not told my DH how upset I was, but they have let me down many times that I will be over it shortly. My other brother was happy for me when I told him and tonight I will be telling my dad. If he doesn't seem happy for us I will have lost my excitement of telling anyone. :roll:
I am going to go now and enjoy the new year. My house is still fairly clean after our party last night so I don't have to worry about cleaning today!!
