Bought prenatal vitamins today. I already take fish oil supplement once a day, which I love. Talked to my mom about trying to make it happen. Haven't totally explained to my dad the situation, but I think he gets that living with my husband might lead to a baby. Def didn't tell brother anything. I don't want to hear it from him, whatever he has to say about it.
Sad that I can't be planning this at home, but maybe the next one?
