Announcing!

Re: Announcing!

  • I keep saying I'm going to announce but I haven't yet. I keep getting a better idea, I have one now and I'm sticking with it. I just have to wait for DH to get home from his hunting trip next weekend.
  • @sofloma  I love this. And I love @PurplePumpernickel 's Dunkin Donuts twist because I grew up in Massachusetts. 

    Is it okay if I borrow/steal this idea?  I think I'm going to smuggle a Dunkin donuts cup on the plane back to Honolulu in February. And pair it with a local Hawaii coffee chain cup.

  • Told the family and the boss now. Trying to decide when I'll do a Facebook announcement and how. No rush lol.

  • We have told my parents and the in-laws, but no Facebook announcement yet. We Skyped with my brother at Christmas to tell him. I got a shirt that says
    I'M PRE_____( with blank spaces)
    You only get one guess
    I said, "Look at the shirt I got for Christmas." Since this was a total surprise pregnancy, he and SIL were quite shocked. It was cute to see their faces. We are going to announce after we get gender news from the NIPT, within a week or so. I can't really hide it anymore, so I'm ready!

  • Has anyone not told family/announced yet? We just told our kids at 13w and my dh told a coworker.  We haven't even told our parents or friends. It's just so hectic with this open heart surgery for our dd and we want to make sure the baby is healthy. Our family is not going to be happy due to health history and I don't want to compound the stress we already have.

  • @mrsdrmatney I haven't told family and friends and I haven't told my two kids either (8 and 5yo). I'm 12 weeks today and don't plan on telling anyone until at least after the NT scan that's scheduled for next week. Part of me is even thinking of holding off telling people and the kids till after my quad screening which is scheduled for Feb 1st (I'll be 15 weeks by then). 

    I'm sorry to hear your DD is having heart surgery. That's very scary and stressful for sure. Please keep us updated on how she does.

    We've only really told immediate family.  I like to wait until 13-14 weeks to tell random people in my life and I doubt we will say anything on social media until 20 weeks.  Totally up to you when you tell people!

    Thinking if you and your DD- I'm so sorry you have to go through that.  Hoping for a speedy recovery!

  • @OperaSingerMommy @supermom83
    thank you for your words of kindness and positive thoughts.  
    I am at least waiting for my first trimester screening results to come in, maybe this week. NT scan results were great and we are just waiting on the bloodwork results .

  • @mrsdrmat mums the word over here. We haven't told any family or friends yet.  Well, my neighbor guessed when I accidentally texted her instead of my husband asking about baby names.  I'm waiting on the anatomy scan to tell family and work.

    I'm sorry to hear about the surgery.  When does she go in?  Hoping for a successful outcome and quick recovery.
  • @caribbeanmama thank you. We are scheduled for the 19th but this is our third date since dd has been too sick to travel and since she will be on a bypass she has to be virus free in the middle of winter with siblings for at least a month.  We have to go to Seattle for her surgery.

  • My 34-weeks pregnant coworker friend came into my office to talk to me earlier this week.  She knows that DH and I were TTC, but I haven't told her I'm actually pregnant yet.  We had an 1.5 hour talk about pregnancy related stuff.  I felt bad basically lying to her face pretending that I wasn't pregnant yet, so the next day, I 'fessed up and told her I'm preggers. 

    Also one of the perks of my job is that the office will mail my packages for me without charge.  Since I am shipping things from Hawaii, this is a really nice perk.  I had to return some A Pea in a Pod purchases.  The return address is "Destination Maternity."  So I'm pretty sure I just indirectly announced to the mail room employees.  Oh well.

    I just updated on all the drama ( read all the weekend stuff I missed), but I def missed what was said in the first place that led her to be banned in the first place. Whatever it was, it must have been bad. Strange behavior. I feel like whenever I am away from TB for even a day I miss so much! 

    ETA - I clearly have fomo
