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 Darling Husband.

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.

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!
