Well we have an announcement! this time it is what you think :)
Dave and I are going to be parents~how scary is that?
As we are only 9 weeks in of 40 ... we let this out of the bag a bit early. There were a couple of reasons for this.
First is that my parents were leaving for Europe and I wanted them to know before they left. The other reason is because all our Lenoir friends were getting together and it was a good time to tell them all at once.
we had a lot of fun with this. One of my friends C knew that we were expecting- since she is a midwife - I told her first. She encouraged me to tell at Family Fun Night. We also decided on a way to tell everyone and see who caught on!
We went shopping at Goodwill. Did you know how hard it is to find t-shirts that mention pregnancy on them? I did find one that had two doves holding a ribbon that said "delivering cuteness".
I wore this on the Family Fun Night. I ended up spilling on it right at the beginning - and was washing it off (not on purpose!) so a few people noticed then but most kept their mouth shut to wait for others responses. (a few of them had an idea that I was pregnant already so it wasn't much of a stretch)
But the person that I was waiting to hear her response took the longest! Finally D (5 months preggo) called her over and had her read my shirt and pay attention.... it was a great response! lots of sequels and hugs etc... from that point on everyone could talk about it.
I never heard this before as a way to tell people that you are pregnant- but Dave told his coworker that he "had Forked". for the geeks out there - they would understand. I didnt but his coworker did and lit up! apparently its some computer process that involves making a copy of program and then splitting it (or something.)
Well MC had a fun time telling people who came late to the party to go ready my shirt.
I even had the offer of going and shopping at a persons house that is not planning on having anymore kids :)
It was a great night.
We had called our Family to let them know that afternoon. Dave did use the line to Mom D : " yeah, we have news..... Debbie's sick.....she has the Egyptian Flu...." Dave's mom caught on quick cuz his Dad used that a lot. She said "shes going to be a MOMMY!!!"
tons of excitement for us.
We also emailed our closer friends and they also had fun with telling others. R&C got married in Oct. A keeps asking them when they are going to have a kid. so they took the photo I sent out and put it on the computer as the background wall paper. They were going to get her to check her email - and then see the photo up. I haven't heard the full story yet- but I see from the facebook status' that they played a great trick and got A good!
so this is for everyone that reads my blog:
