So my 12 week mark will be here soon and me and my husband are ready to announce my pregnancy. My doctor was really surprised that we hadn’t told anyone already. My mother and grandfather oddly enough for like the past 2 months have been saying things like “oh people keep asking me when I’m going to become a grandma or “you better hurry up and have some babies soon”. I have been sick as a dog and my husband thought was he doing good by having my family just pop up at my house last night while I was literally dying. He then blurts out “we have something to show you” and I stood there saying “what”. I got really mad that he put me on the spot like that, especially since he knew I wanted it to be done at a nice time, like when we had a dinner or something and not literally 2 seconds after they walk in my house. Plus, he knows how sick I’ve been. The situation got kind of akward and my family ended up leaving. Of course my husband got mad at me and keeps saying that he don’t understand why I don’t want to tell people and why I’m waiting for the perfect time. I guess I’m overly supersitious and yes I want it to be done in a nice way, not all quicky, quicky while I have tissues hanging from my nose lol. This will be the first grandchild and great-grandchild on both sides and I def want to tell my family first and do it in person. I was thinking of doing it next weekend over dinner or something and showing them the sonogram pictures. Does this sound good? Is there something wrong that I’m waiting to tell people?

I think that sounds good. Another bee posted that she had a cake made with her due date on it, and it took them a while to figure it out! I thought that was really cute!

I can understand you wanting to do it at a nice time when you have everyone’s attention and you can plan something for it.
We’re waiting till 12 weeks as well – just because we don’t want to tell everyone till it’s a little more definite.
We’ll tell the fam at Thanksgiving because our parents live 3 hours apart and we’ll see all of them over that weekend. We didn’t want to tell one set and then have to wait weeks to tell the other – and luckily my family will be our first stop (which just seems right for some reason). 🙂

We had bibs makes for grandparents and great-grandparents and presented it to them as a gift. The bibs said “I ♥ my ___” and we spelled out grandparent(s)/great-grandma in our language. They loved them and were completely surprised.

My FI’s brother and SIl had everyone get together at their house for home-made chinese food and fortune cookies. I was pregnant at the time so how they did it was pretty funny. They ordered the cookies online so the fortunes would saw whatever they wanted. One said, “there will be a baby born soon” so everyone thought it was me and it was a coinsidence. The second said, “a child will be here in 9 months” and they said it was close but it was more like 5 or 6, and the third came right out and said, “Lilly will be a big sister!” Lilly is their first born and the second one, also a girl, is a month old now. Everyone thought it was a cool idea.
