#2 EDD: 11/15/2017
We told FI's family over the weekend and it was kind of underwhelming. His brother and sister seemed very emotional, hugging him and actually crying, but I just sort of awkwardly stood there left out. His mom didn't understand what we were saying at first, and then asked if it was 3 months in yet, and when we said no, but that we have had several ultrasounds and everything looks wonderful, she was like "oh. well we'll see."FI told a close friend the same day who was kind of the same, emotional and hugging HIM, and then asking "don't people usually wait 3 months?" Meanwhile I'm very awkwardly just standing there, like, oh what exciting news for you FI, if only the person actually GROWING THE BABY were here to be congratulated.My mom had better react better than this.
We decided to go with an idea from some friends in my old due date group (for my son). When we showed my step daughter (16), she was so excited that she was the first one we told. We ended up giving my son (6) a Big Sibling Book which is a baby book/journal from his perspective through pregnancy and the baby's first year. Everyone so far is really excited. We are announcing it to everyone else on Monday after my ultrasound.
DS1 is 7. DD is 1. DS2 is coming in late April.
