I already told my mom and she probably already told my dad. But we're going to stick with a Disney theme and mail some out to our close family and friends. Something like this:
Trigger Warning: loss mentioned: I have no idea how to announce. I had a miscarriage in August and we had done a cool announcement then with our DD but now I'm feeling very cautious about announcing and especially about announcing as soon as we did last time. I want to do it after the 20 week (?) anatomy scan but, man, that's far away lol
– No it is not terrible; I am in the same boat and DH agreed. MIL is a
wonderful woman, but just really bad with secrets!
@MrsHudson2014 – I
can sympathize with your story. I’m 28, DH is 29 but he has a few chronic
illnesses and it’s only going to get harder for him as we get older. He’s the
lucky stay at home dad, working part time for his dad’s business when he can. We
live with my mom and I also feel like some of the family thinks we aren’t in a
good place for another child (6 year old DD is mine from a previous
relationship), but politely I say screw them. This is my life and the time is
right for us to grow or family now. If you wait for a perfect moment to do
something, you might never get it done, so if now works for you two then no one
else should care. I know how much easier said than done that is, but it’s
certainly helped me with all the judgy-mcjudgersons out there who think they
know my situation better than me.
As for announcing, I'm thinking of getting DD a cute "Big Sister" shirt for her Easter basket and having her wear it to the family Easter get togethers. Easter is the Sunday after we have our heartbeat appointment, and I hate keeping things from people! Especially exciting things.
@Cubslove12 Where are those from? We are also waiting until after first u/s (tomorrow! finally!) and plan on having the grandparents open gifts with grandparent mugs. But those are so cute!
