I will not tell a soul until I hear the heartbeat. Partially because I just need to hear it first. Partially because I am not sure all of my family will be excited. My husband and I are definitely old enough (27/29), but we both work retail and most of our family doesn't consider our income enough to raise a child. We pretty much said screw that, because we wanted kids and my family history includes fibroids and uterine tumors that resulted in hysterectomies....I wanna do it now while I still have the parts to do it with!
Now. For announcing. We are both huge Star Wars nerds, and kinda geeks in general. So I am trying to find something related. Our parents and sibling will absolutely get a phone call or be told in person first, but my parents are the only ones close to us.
Love all these ideas! This will be our first and we are so excited. Several months before BFP I bought a shirt for our dog that said "Soon to be Big Sister". Corny but my DH loved it! Put our pup in the shirt as soon as I had BFP! We told my parents shortly after around 4w3d. We told them with our pup wearing the shirt, too. Since she never wears clothes they noticed right away. Both of them cried and screamed in excitement!We waited until we had heard heartbeat at 8w4d before telling other family members. We want to wait until closer to 20 weeks to post on Facebook.
@gavzillaxo - I love the sign your hubby made! Looks great!!! And the pictures are so cute!
@MrsB627 - we have the same plan! Will announce after my
appointment on Thursday. Looks like a lot of us have the Easter egg
