How did you announce that you are expecting another baby? OR your first baby? Pretty much the same with all of ours so far. Of course, we told family first then our friends and luckily for us, word in both groups travels fast so it was pretty much like "Telephone" for us- one person knows and its public knowledge
Who did you tell first? Ok, this is going to sound AWFUL but with Olivia, I actually told my mom before I told Jon! I totally did not expect a positive but tested one day while he was at work just to clear my own mind and when I discovered it was, I called him straight away at work but he was in a meeting. I was so excited though, I dialed my mom straight away and ended up talking to Jon about an hour later, lol. With Mason and this one, Jon and I called our parents first.
Who were you nervous,scared to tell? No one, excited to tell everyone
What were your feelings when you found out? #1- excited, #2- excited, #3- surprised, then excited
Would you do anything different next time you tell family and friends? Nothing really. We made the "official" announcement at Thanksgiving this year to all the extended family who we don't talk to as regularly but the majority of everyone knew about it already through us or word of mouth.
yes. since this baby will be planned we will do something fun. i think i'm going to have ashtons pictures taken wtih a big brother shirt on and just mail everyone his picture and see who calls me first.
How did you announce that you are expecting another baby? OR your first baby?
This is our first baby, and for my parents I got a Christmas ornament personalized for them. It has a picture of a snowman and a snowwoman with "Special Grandparents to-be" written on the top of it, and "Love Jaime & Jason" on the back.
My mother was so excited when she opened it! We did a similar thing for DH's parents.
Who did you tell first?
After DH, our parents.
Who were you nervous,scared to tell?
I was nervous to tell my boss, but mostly excited to tell everyone else. It's still not known here at work, only my boss and close coworkers know.
What were your feelings when you found out?
Surprise. We were trying, but this was our first "shot" no pun intended. We were told by our doctor to expect to take up to six months to get pregnant, so it is still a bit of a shock, but we're SOOOO excited!
Would you do anything different next time you tell family and friends?
I don't know. We told people pretty early, and I'm nervous about that, but I think everything will be okay.
