My husband decided that he wanted to tell his parents and immediate family (his brother and sister) that we were pregnant soon. I asked if he wanted to wait till christmas and he said that was too long to wait. My parents knew the whole process so I didn’t need to tell them. We told hubby’s parents this morning by showing his mom one of our ultrasound pictures. She didn’t have a big outburst or anything and she was going somewhere so it was short and sweet. She was happy for us and asked when I was due. I then of course got emotional and got teary, which I didn’t mean to do and feel kinda goofy about. Oh well. When I got teary she asked if this was a long time coming and I said yes, two years coming. She said wow. I have a feeling that she knew we were having issues since we have been married for four years and nothing had happened yet. I have a feeling she will ask more questions at a later point when she has more time and she isn’t going somewhere.
Then we went to lunch with hubby’s brother. We normally go to lunch on sunday with his parents and brother, but his parents had somewhere to go today. His brother was very happy. He said that it was the best news he had heard all week and that we would be a good mommy and daddy. Aw. He said he would be the goofy uncle lol. He asked a bunch of questions and I told him that things were still early and such. But he was excited. He too said something along the lines of I know you were having a hard time or something, which I was surprised about. Hubby thinks he overheard him responding to an extended family member who was joking about why we didn’t have kids yet or something. Either way, they are excited and it’s nice to know they knew they were having some issues, but were not pushy about it. Hubby’s sister lives in a different state so we may call her sometime soon. We are only telling immediate family. I want people who see us each week or are close to us emotionally to know. I am glad they know now, but I am nervous that something bad will happen now that we have told people. I really hope that nothing bad happens.
I bought some jolly ranchers today. I was googling around and was reading about preggie pops. I have always wondered about them and if they actually work to get rid of nausea. Through reading I found out that a lot of people think that jolly ranchers work just as well and they are less expensive. So I am ready whenever the morning sickness decides to hit.
