Telling Everyone

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Originally, I planned to wait until the end of my first trimester to share the news with the world.  I wanted to make sure that we had the smallest chance possible of something happening before we told.

Then, when I saw how excited our families were and how ready they were to share the news, I decided we would tell at 10 weeks.  I figured at that point, chances of something happening are pretty low.  And, if something did happen, I would want the support of friends and family.

Then this past Monday we went to the doctor and got to see our little sprout.  Once I saw that little heartbeat and saw our little one wiggle, I knew I couldn’t wait any longer.  It finally felt real enough to tell everyone.  So as we left the doctor’s office, I called my mom to let her know that she could start telling family and friends.  Then we called Corey’s mom and my dad and told them the same thing.  Corey and I called and emailed friends and Corey went back to work and told everyone there.

After all of our close friends and family had heard the news, I announced to Facebook.  Let me explain this.  I very rarely post anything to Facebook.  I usually logon, look at my news feed, and log off.  But my brother Travis, posts everything on Facebook.  And ever since we told him that he was going to be an uncle over a month ago, he has had to sit on his hands to avoid posting something about this baby.  I figured if some of my friends, even if they aren’t close friends, were going to hear about our news through Facebook it should at least come from me.  So as soon as we had called everyone we needed to call, I posted this to Facebook

Now everyone knows.  Travis could post as much as he wanted about the new baby coming to our family.  (By the way, he keeps telling everyone that HE is having a baby.)  I am glad he, and everyone else, is so excited.

I am glad that everyone finally knows.  No more secrets!
