Everyone knows! Well family that is. LOL Haven't mentioned on facebook. Not sure when I will do that. I went from just a few people knowing at work, my 2 sisters, stepsister, and BIL knowing to at least 100 people now. Probably more than that. That is just family too!

Christmas Eve

We went to my mom and stepdads first. My brother kept asking me and making comments about being pregnant. He didn't actually know. He was just doing it to be a pain. LOL At my moms I let everyone open the envelopes. It was just mainly my mom, stepdad and brother that didn't know there. My older sister knew b/c dh was out of town and I needed someone to go with me to the u/s. I accidentally said something in front of my little sister. I was talking to someone on the phone and said something about my due date so she found out a couple of weeks ago.

I started crying right after my mom opened the album and said are you. I kind of ruined her reaction. LOL She is happy but of course she is worried. My brother I think was surprised b/c he was joking with me earlier that day.

My mom said my little sister told her later on that day that she has been praying for me every night ever since she found out. She is 13 years old. I talked to my mom today and she said she didn't know. I guess I lied about things all to well. LOL

DH's parents

After we left my moms, we went to dh's mom and dads. It was just them. His brother wasn't there. His mom had the best reaction out of everyone. She was looking at our pics. I let her open one that wasn't the giveaway.

MIL: When did you have that taken?
ME: A couple of weeks ago.

Then they open the album.

MIL: Where did you have this taken? (She started to read the print at the bottom b/c she thought it said where we had it done at.)
MIL: Boy or girl. What? (She continues to look at the rest.)
MIL: Boy parts.
FIL: How do they know that?
MIL: They had an u/s.

Her reaction was pretty funny. Will try and post the video.

Christmas Day (dads side at g'mas)

I passed out all the envelopes again and gave my dd the album. My stepmom was sick so she stayed home. Everyone opens and of course my aunts figure out before my dad. My aunt ended up showing my dad the u/s pic and he just said "OH" LOL

(Last pregnancy) I figured my dad would be a little slow. He didn't get that I was pg, the last time we told him. I had a card that said grandpa on it. I told him dh picked it out and he wanted to talk to him on the phone while he opened it. My dad just opened and said thanks. He thought it said g'pa b/c my stepsister was pg too. Well my stepmom figured it out before him. He hung up with dh and my stepmom made a comment about who would scream more in the labor. My dad said oh wait you are pg.? Get Matt back on the phone.

Needless to say I was expecting him to be a little slow. He claims he just saw the first pic (it said boy or girl though) and the last pic. The last pic. was of dh and I. It didn't have anything to do with being pg. He said he skipped over the u/s pics. lOL Who knows.

Everyone was excited. 2 of my aunts said they thought I was pg when I was standing in the kitchen. One kept asking me how I was doing. She checked in on me several times while I was going through chemo and asked about my hcg levels after my m/c. She kept asking questions but never asked if I was pg. Both of my aunts said they didn't want to just ask b/c they weren't sure with everything that happened and didn't know if I just gained weight.

After we left my g'mas we went to my dads house and let my stepmom open the album. She figured it out pretty quick. I guess she went shopping yesterday (26th) and already bought some farm toys and legos. LOL She said well we have to have boy toys too.

Dh ended up just telling all his dads side of the family at our get together. They were all excited too.

Sorry it was long. Now I will try and figure out my videos! I just got a camcorder so it may take me awhile.

Thank you Shortcake for my siggy!
