Well, we told our families today! I told my sister and her husband firt. I gave her a mug that said "auntie 2 be" on it, and has a cute little bumble bee on it. She cried, so then of course I cried lol

After that we went to Easter lunch with my family and my husbands family. We gave our parents giant paper mâché eggs with baby stuff and an ultrasound inside. They opened them, and my mom was so shocked and just started bawling for like five minutes solid! It was pretty neat and everybody was really excited.

Now hopefully they can all keep quiet until after our ultrasound on April 4.

woohoo! Sounds like a good day I'm glad nobody cried with mine - I'd either cry to or be turned off the baby talk.

Thanks ladies! It really was a fun day, and everybody was asking us questions all afternoon (have you thought of names, how are you feeling, etc). I'm glad everybody is excited.

Sam, that's cute! I'm really not THAT creative. My paper mâché eggs looked like the chicken had a difficult time expelling them from its body...the tops were a little misshapen.

What a great reaction! Our families aren't emotional so we usually get a stupid joke or sarcastic remark when we tell.

She texted me last night at like 9pm and was like "I'm sorry, I just can't stop thinking about it!" and then started asking me all these questions! I feel like it will be like that from here on out!
