Re: How and when will you "reveal?"

We bought a big brother bat man shirt for DS. I'm thinking he might wear it to my mom's birthday party on the 13th, but DH doesn't want to steal her thunder, so now I don't know when we are going to tell everyone.

Do you think it would be weird to announce a pregnancy on your mom's birthday? My mom is totally into her grandkids, but I don't want to be a jerk and take away from her day. But I also think it might be a nice little present?

I wouldn't.

I would take her aside and tell her privately. Then, ask her if she's okay with you telling everyone else. Or, maybe let her announce it?

What if you give your mom the shirt as a gift, privately, before the party? Then she can decide whether to reveal or not.

Our dating ultrasound is on our 5-year anniversary, so we might send a pic to the grandparents of our "anniversary gift" if we decide we can't hide it until Thanksgiving.

I've totally been planning on doing this! In fact, I really want to get started on making it, but I'm waiting until my first appt and hoping for an u/s just to make sure this one is sticky!

Re: How and when will you "reveal?"

We're having a big Halloween/birthday party for my kids when I'll be about 12.5 weeks....but I'm nervous to reveal until after my 12wk visit. We had one loss where baby stopped growing at 8wks, we revealed at Christmas to extended family around 12wks and then found out that we had lost the baby on New Years at the 12wk appt. So I'm nervous to reveal before that visit, but the party is before!

Re: How and when will you "reveal?"

We had my 2 year old call my parents and siblings and say that paisley is a big sister (paisley is our youngest). Then once we told the family then hubby took a pic of me a spoon and ice cream in one hand a pickle in the other, then everyone slowly figured it out.
