i don't know why, but i am nervous. more about telling my dad than my mom. i know it couldn't be as bad as last time when i told them i was pregnant with Sarah.

so i made a short video of Sarah saying "guess what everyone, i'm going to be a big sister, my mommy has a baby in her belly!"

do you think it's acceptable if i email that to my parents? or does that seem like a cop out?

i can share the video here if you want.

i posted the video in secrets.

my mom saw it almost right away and was so so so happy! she posted the video on her FB page and wrote "Oh My Baby♥ I laughed, I cried. Your the best Mom in the world. I wish I could be half the Mom you are. I Love You!!!!!!! (When?)"
then we talked on the phone for a while. next up is dad. i texted him and told him to check his email. he'll probably see it tomorrow morning and i'll let you know what happens.

ok, well my dad just e-mailed me

"wow
well we knew thats what you wanted
god bless you my honey
stay healthy"

not exactly a negative response, but he definitely seems disappointed. i wonder if i should say anything or just let it go.

No, not overly positive, but not so negative I'd say anything. I'd let it go myself.

Either way, congrats lady!

I'd let it go too. Men are weird about this, they think with their pockets and not with their hearts. I think he took it well!

I wouldn't say anything to your dad either. I think if he had any reservations he stayed positive and put on a brave face. It's so hard to judge tone in an email.

I'm happy for you that your mom was so positive. It's hard to figure men out sometimes. Even DH doesn't seem that excited about this baby yet. I know he will eventually, but I think it just takes longer to set in for men.

By the way, the video was adorable! Sarah is SO CUTE!

I agree with the other ladies. Men are dumb sometimes, and although it wasn't over the top positive, it wasn't really negative either, though I can see how it would be easy to take it that way.

well i just got off the phone with my brother and he said my dad flipped out and was really angry about it. he thinks we can't handle another kid and basically thinks we are crazy. when my brother told him to quit being so negative he screamed at him.
i am going to have a hard time keeping my mouth shut now.
