Tomorrow marks 12 weeks for me. I'm now having a harder time containing my excitement (and obviously focusing my attention AT work ON WORK).

Unless my appointment today is bad news, I will pretty much spend the next two weeks dreaming up the best way to announce the news to our son and my in-laws.

Our family tradition is to open our gifts to each other on Christmas Eve. I have been thinking about giving DS the shirts as his last gift from us. In some ways, his little expression might be the best thing we all get to see that night. Or, we let him in on the secret just before my in-laws show up and pray he can keep a secret for 4 hours and let him give them a photo ornament of the u/s. I think the shirt idea is better...

Maybe I will go search pinterest a little more. It's 11 and no one has noticed I haven't done a darn thing yet and I'm out of here at 1pm anyway today for my appointment. Seriously, I'm thankful I'm sitting in the back office solo today!

Good luck at your appointment! We told our parents early, but no one else knows yet. I ordered Christmas cards announcing, but they have not arrived yet. I will be over 14 weeks before everyone knows.

We are announcing to my daughter on Christmas with a book and shirt. Everyone else already knows but now I kind of wish we waited to tell so we could announce to parents on Christmas also. I bet Pinterest could provide lots of cute ideas for announcing.

We were thinking about telling on Christmas but there is some drama going on that I don't want to get involved in that I'm afraid would happen with me announcing on Christmas....

I hope your Christmas announcement will go perfectly There was no way I could hold off telling anyone until Christmas, the majority of our friends knew within the first 9 weeks and I only managed to not tell my parents until 12 weeks because I only see them about once or twice a month!

The good part of them knowing before Christmas though is that they are buying the car seat for us for Christmas...and knowing my parents - they'll end up getting us more for the baby shower even though I told them not too b/c the car seat is $300!

I too have serious problems focusing on work at work, lol - at work seems to be the only time I feel like browsing all the websites looking at baby stuff and building my registry Once I get home the last thing I want to do is look at a computer screen!
