So I finally told my mom last night that we were expecting. I asked her if she had any vacations planned for the end of August and she responded back,"no, why." Then I told her because we are having a baby and she screamed and cried at the same time on the phone. It was such an awesome reaction and even my younger brother (who's not so young at 28 anymore!) was excited. She was very excited and happy for us and it made me tear up because somehow telling my mom made this more real to me. We originally wanted to wait until we were 12 weeks, but have already told some people because they guessed (I have a tiny bump) and I'm not good at telling white lies. We are telling my dad in person over the weekend. My husband told his parents over the phone a few weeks ago, and their reaction was pretty great as well. It's starting to make this baby experience real.
