This was our FB announcement. I put something like Santa came early baby X arrives in June!, it was around Christmas when we announced.

So far we have only told my best friend, my sister, our parents, and my husband’s best friend.  I am 12w0d today.

We told our parents when we invited them over for my dad’s birthday.  I printed a copy of the ultrasound with a green border.  Above the image it says, “TEMPORARY PHOTO” and below it says, “Official version e.t.a. February 23, 2014”.  Stuck it in a frame, wrapped it up, and gave it to my dad as his birthday present.  It took him forever to figure it out.  First he just looked at the frame, put it in his lap and said a polite “Thank you.”  Then he looked at it a bit more closely and said, “Is this you?”  Then I said yes and he just sort of sat there until I said, “Do you want to pass that around so that other people can see it?”. Finally my mom said, “Is that what I think it is?”  D’oh.

Assuming — *knock wood* — that we get good test results this week, then I am going to tell the managing partners at work and a few close friends.  Will probably wait til we get from vacation at 16w to announce more broadly.

My husband and I agreed to wait till around 6-7weeks to tell family and friends. We plan on giving them gifts with oneies in them that say ‘I *heart* my ____’ I’m hoping everyone will be able to put two and two together.

Here is a picture of all the oneies….it was kind of a pain to make, but so worth it. Can’t wait to hand these out! At first I didn’t think we could fit the words ‘grandma and grandpa’ soooo it was shortened to ‘g-ma and g-pa’
