I had to reply. I found out I was pregnant with dd. our third baby a few days before Christmas. When hubby and two boys got their stocking Christmas morning there was an extra sock on the fireplace that said "Baby 2007 " on the sock. Now that was a present !!!!!

We did this with DS. We found out we were preggo 1 week before Mother's Day, so we sent both of our moms a bouquet of flowers with a card that said "Happy Mother's Day Grandma! Love, DH, me, and Baby K." It was the first grandbaby on both sides, it was so fun to get their phone calls after receiving their flowers!

LOVE LOVE this idea, so cute!! We have our anatomy scan next week but will have them seal up the gender in an envelope so we can open it up Christmas day with all our family and find out together.

Re: If you BFP before Christmas...

I'm going to keep this one under wraps as long as I can. I think it would be neat to hold out until Valentine's day. That would put me at 14 weeks. As this is our 5th, we are going to get a good share of snarky comments and I just don't want to deal. I love hearing your ideas though

It must be DH's cousin.' Or something. Not sure what I'll do if we get it before Christmas. An ornament hidden discreetly on the tree, for Mom to find as she takes it apart the week after?
Duuuuuuuuude.. too funny!

Re: If you BFP before Christmas...

i think all my tears of joy would give it away I wouldn't be able to keep it a secret.... I remember trying before last christmas I af started Christmas day.

20 months of ttc has made me an emotional sap.... I think based on my cycle I should be able to get a BFP just in time for my hubby's b-day... the 27th.... maybe this year it will work. I am still hoping and praying!

Re: If you BFP before Christmas...

I won't be testing until xmas (if I can hold out), I'll tell DH obviously but no, we wouldn't tell family even if I found out a few days before xmas. I just had my second m/c in Oct, so I am not the type to tell anyone early anymore.

Re: If you BFP before Christmas...

I will definatly tell DH asap. I have a little onesie that say I Love Daddy and a Daddy book that I will give to him the day we get our BFP. If Its before Christmas I have little onesies that say "I love my Auntie", "I love my Grandma" etc... that I will have them all open on christmas at the same time. Let me tell you, It was hard to find 6 different I love my auntie shirts! I'll only tell my parents, MIL, sisters, SIL and my 2 best friends until 12 weeks. Depending on how Im feeling is when Ill tell my boss, Im sure she'll figure it out!

Re: If you BFP before Christmas...

I would love to get a positive by Christmas. I probably wouldn't tell at the family gathering but would tell a few very close friends/family who I know could keep a secret. I think I would wait until Jan to tell people. I would be a little nervous to tell so soon at like 5 or 6 weeks along.

I would love to wait until Valentine's Day so I could send out a cute big sister card from our dd.
