We had some mixed reactions when we announced our pregnancy to our families. Which was not expected at all. We told a few people at a time starting with our parents...
This was Harper's reaction. She cried. Like real tears, I'm not the baby grandchild anymore tears. Porter was also so upset. He just kept asking why we were having a baby, we didn't need a baby. All they do is cry and throw up. I asked if he was going to come to the hospital when I have the baby and he said he might but warned me that it was going to take like 3 days for them to get it out. He continued to voice his concerns to anyone that would listen.
He did tell me this weekend he was still just a tiny bit mad at me. So maybe by January he'll be excited!
For Patrick's family we had Melissa have a Father's day cake made with all the dad's names on it plus Patrick. After having to explain the picture to my sister I was afraid we were going to have to explain this one too, but we didn't. His sister picked up on it immediately. They were all so excited. None of the kids cried so it was a success.
I will say this... this has been one of the most awkward things to just come out and say to people. I'm glad we had little ways to tell everyone that made it so much easier. I was going to tell my book club on Friday but it just wasn't something that came up in conversation so most of them ended up finding out on facebook which isn't the way I really wanted but it was the easiest.
I plan on doing weekly updates but my "photographer" needs some practice so it might be a couple of weeks. Honestly there isn't much to see yet. I just look fat ;) I've felt good for the most part. I've been sick a few times but not really enough to complain about. This week I've started having nosebleeds which were kinda scary at first but I read they are completely normal.
