Fun time to announce

Because this was a super unexpected pregnancy I have decided to wait until I was much further along before I told my family and FB. Since I will be about 20 weeks around April 1st, I thought it would be funny to announce that day.

Re: Fun time to announce

I called my mom right after I called hubby! Then both of my sisters! My BFF! And my dad when he got home from work. Then the inlaws, DH has always waited a long time to tell them, but I broke the news this time!
Since then, I told my Grandma(mom's mom) right before Christmas, because my mom was visiting, and it was killing her. Especially since Grandma kept asking, it's like she always knows, even before I do, when we are expecting! Now, I'm pretty sure Grandma has told the family, but at her age, I feel if she wants to sing to the world about it, she's welcome to!
And just this week, my other Grandma. So, lots of people know, but since we just moved, none of my friends, who I only see on FB know.

Trying to hold out until after 12 weeks to tell family. Work already knows, but that's because they're my doctor too!

Re: Fun time to announce

DDC crashing here, lol. We kept ours a secret until Christmas, and stuck a little announcement in with our Christmas card. I loved doing it that way. I love the idea of April fools day!

Awesome! Except for the one snarky comment of course!
My friends & family all appear to have loved it! And if they didn't, they kept it to themselves!

Re: Fun time to announce

I announced on Christmas day and face timed those who weren't physically pregnant. I had one grandma open a present with a baby gown in it. For gender reveal we went out to eat and we did cupcakes with pink frosting inside and herSHEy bars since we live 10 min away
