We told ... lots of folks.

Thanks to Sproggie and sproggielittle for an award! If I wasn't such a Luddite I would know how to upload the cool picture. I'm swamped with work this afternoon but the moment I get a chance I'll do the written assignment.

So, we told my folks. They went ..... well, quiet. Then burst into tears, and stuttered stuff. They are delighted and bowled over. They phoned again today and told me they hadn't slept. I know my mum is mired in emotional panic right now, she suffered such deep emotional scars from her own life.

Brother was lovely. SIL was... oh silly cow, whatever.

It's been lovely though, really. And now DH is hot on the perfect crib, changing table etc. He spent hours researching the best strollers!!!

Ahhhhhh. we'ze preggers. yes we are.


  1. It's so lovely to see the parents just so happy. :) My whole family was crying this weekend that I got a positive pee stick. They've been with me all the way through my IF journey and read my blog. So of course they had to know now!

  2. Yay! Some of my favorite moments have included sharing joy with others about the pregnancy rather than the fear I feel most of the time. I am so happy for you!

  3. I was pregnant at 40 and waited until after my NT to tell folks, too, so reading your excitement takes me back to my own (and thank you for that!). Congratulations in being able to share the joy...there is almost nothing better.

    It is what it is

  4. I'm just so excited for you!! Telling people was the best feeling! Looking forward to following your pregnant with twins journey :)


  5. So glad you got to tell folks and they are, of course, overjoyed. My in-laws finally were allowed to tell people they know and they just about frothed at the mouth they were so excited. :-) It's funny but telling people still feels a bit surreal to me, like I'm making it all up and I'll wake from a dream.
