So we are posting today on FB about our pregnancy. I’m almost 10 weeks. Two days from it. I wanted to wait but Mother-In-Law is posting on FB about “5 grandbabies, soon to be six” and posted a picture of me and my daughter saying “ready for round two!”
Also that Pinterest secret board somehow posted to my FB page and a friend called me last night and asked me if I was preggo.
I don’t feel as bad because that same friend’s SIL posted she was expecting and she’s due October 12th.
This is what I’m posting:

@figgnewton: Congratulations! Are you miffed that it won’t be a complete surprise? I personally don’t catch every single FB update. In fact, there have been a few times where I didn’t catch pregnancy updates until a few posts later!
Either way, I’m sure everyone will be absolutely thrilled for you. Congrats again!

@figgnewton: Sooo cute!
But I’d be mad at your Mother-In-Law. Mine did the same thing and I haven’t exactly forgiven her for it.

@somethingaquamarine: I’m kinda miffed but not. I don’t know. I’m sad that we didn’t get to say something first but oh well. What’s done is done I guess.
@ellebeerob: I’m a little irked. She kept telling me no one would get it. I’m like “5 grandbabies soon to be six” hmmm 3 of your kids are in high school still so I don’t think you would be so happy and your other two boys are snipped (in their late 30’s). Wild guess! Yeesh.
@MrsStrawberry24: It’s def. a relief to tell. I feel like I don’t have to hide anymore and we can be excited in public now. Congrats to you lady!

@figgnewton: I totally understand. I’d be upset too! Hopefully most of your friends aren’t friends with your Mother-In-Law on Facebook and the ones who are don’t know which one of her children is expecting! I think most people will still be surprised. 🙂

@figgnewton: Congrats to you. Sorry your Mother-In-Law ruined it. For this reason we are keeping it from EVERYONE until 12 weeks when we get our BFP. We have too many big mouths in our families….

Ahhh what a cute announcement! I hear you on the big-mouthed Mother-In-Law, mine went and told a BUNCH of people, thank goodness she doesn’t have FB! I am pseudo-forgiving her because this is the IL’s first grandkid, and I am not surprised at all that she did that, she tends to be a bit crazy most of the time. Uggh. Oh well. We are announcing today, too on FB! Good luck! 🙂

@figgnewton: super cute! Just love it!
Thank you for reassuring me as to why we have not told his parents yet (I am 10w 1d) because sometimes I feel guilty that we are still keeping it from them. However, we both know his mom just cannot keep a secret for the life of her and this would happen…
