I mean, seriously amazing. Not only did we get to see our precious baby moving and wiggling around, but we got to let the cat out of the bag and finally tell people we’re having a baby. We had already told our parents, siblings and close friends, but we got to tell all the other family members and friends yesterday, and it was SO much fun! I had gotten so used to keeping the secret, I had begun to feel like I could keep it forever. After telling the first person, my great aunt, I changed my mind about that! Everyone was so thrilled for us. Only a handful knew about the IF issues (namely my cousin and aunt that also had to use fertility treatments), but they were especially excited to hear the news. I am so grateful that this baby is coming into a family that is so excited to welcome it into the world.
On a funny note, Trevor was looking at the u/s pictures again last night and came to the raccoon picture (creep skeleton face- see post below for pic) and said “Well, it definitely has your face… I’ve seen that look a time or two.” I completely cracked up! He is such a hilarious husband. He was having the best day yesterday and really enjoyed telling everyone. He said it feels more real now that everyone knows and after seeing the baby on the NT scan looking like a little person. We also broke the news on Facebook, so I feel like it’s official!
