If you are still super early, Id wait it out a few more weeks. We didnt tell our families before 11 weeks, and as hard as it was, we waited. I understand your not wanting to take attention away from your sisters shower…maybe wait until right after that? Its just a few days away, so hold out. But if you feel REALLY bad, tell them. Since her baby is here, its going to be difficult to steal thunder.
I Skyped my mom and dad to tell them, but thats because they live hours away. If they are accessible to you, Id tell them in person. They will appreciate it, and so will DH.
congratulations! How far along are you?
I don’t know your family dynamics but I would be thrilled if my kid had a cousin to play with. Right now ours is going to be the only grand kid on either side and no one else is looking like they’re having kids anytime soon. Telling before or after the shower is your call, you could even tell your sister in confidance first and see what she says (though I wouldn’t make an announcement during the shower).
For us I wrapped up a little stuffed toy with a note explaining it was for her future grandkid to have something to snuggle with when they came to visit and gave it to my mom. It took the pressure of actually finding a way to say it and was still cutesy enough.
Thanks all! I 6 weeks and I go next week for the ultrasound in hopes of hearing the heartbeat. I will probably end up letting my DH have his big deal moment and do it his way.
It’s funny , I don’t want to make a big deal of it in front of my parents, but yet I am really offended with how my close friend reacted when I told her. She basically ignored that I even told her for the entire weekend, and then 3 days later sent me a text saying she would respond to my email on Monday. Only for her to write a vague congrats and then when I didn’t write her write back write away she sent me another email saying she was preggo.
Your friend sounds like she is jealous, which is weird to me. I wanted one of my friends to be pregnant with! Ignore her, she’ll come around.
Tell your fam and make a deal of it…its something to be excited about!
