Aww, this post gives me the warm fuzzies!

We didn’t do anything special to announce to our families. Darling Husband wanted to tell them right away, so I let him do it and he just sort of awkwardly blurted it out, lol. Neither of our families were all that surprised. They were excited, but quietly so, if that makes sense. I think they’re all getting more obviously excited now that baby’s arrival is just a few months away and everything feels more real.

Oh my gosh, that’s so exciting. I love the way you told them.

I’m only 4w4d, very early but we told our parents. I am super close with my mom and I couldn’t keep it from her, but felt it wrong to keep it from my dad. My parents bawled. His parents were so excited, Mother-In-Law was squealing LOL

@Mrs Hedgehog:  DH is the same way, and I agree. I don’t want to hide it, but I want to make sure we do have something in there! We’re waiting til his bday, so it’s a little longer than I want, but fits.

@Mrs Hedgehog:  my sweetie and I made cards (I shared a pic in one of your other threads) and my Moms reaction was the best!! I got my partner to discreetly video them opening it too from her phone, and I emailed it to my brother and his wife so they could laugh too. My mom was like, whaaaaaat? And then just kept staring at me wih her jaw on the floor. 

I mailed the card to my Dad and step Mom and I guess it hasn’t arrived since no call yet. But yes, everyone is thrilled! 

Glad it went so well for you!
