We told my parents. We didn't do anything cute or fancy. No offense if you're into that kind of thing, but that stuff makes me gag. I don't even believe the terms grandma and grandpa got used. It's just not us.
My mom was happy for us and did get a little weepy. But at the end when we were leaving she did exactly what I was worried she would do. She said, "See, and you were so worried about getting pregnant."
Yeah, I know on the scale of things, we didn't have to use the 'big guns' but I hate that it feels like she totally trivialized the fact that this didn't 'just happen' it was difficult. Drugs, doctors, nurses, technicians, a lab, and an acupuncturist were all involved (and not to mention more than a little prayer). She just has no idea. I truly feel that the aggressive way that we approached things made this happen more quickly than it could have been... so even though it ONLY took 8 months with an RE, it sure could have taken longer if I didn't push for additional treatment upfront.
So my mom asks if she can tell my siblings... I tell her to knock herself out. My brother has already called me. I might call my sister and tell her myself, she never had any children, so I think she will really be excited. And I will have to call my other brother, because my mom hates talking to him.
We are planning on telling DH's family next week. We didn't want to pile it on top of BIL & SIL's new baby... I'm not sure who would be stealing who's thunder there, but something tells me an actual baby will always trump an announcement. So he probably won't tell them until the middle to end of next week. I'm sure the joy of my in-laws first grand child will have subsided by then (yeah right).
But the best thing about today was test driving new cars! My car has been more than I could have ever asked for, but it's 11 years old, and we need something safer. So we test drove our top two choices and one was a dud and one (the one I was rooting for) was a STUD! I'm pretty excited because I think if we can find one in the color we want we will probably buy soon. Telling my family I'm pregnant isn't near as fun as looking at new cars.
