We told our Boise family today. They are excited. My sister cried. I cried a little. It’s all so surreal for me.
I feel pretty blah a lot of the time, but I don’t feel anything that feels like a baby is in there yet. So it’s like it’s not real yet.
It felt very early to be telling them. But how could we spend the week here and not say anything until a few weeks from now. Just felt dumb not to tell them.
My sister-in-law was the most cautious in her congratulations. I am only 7 weeks after all. And she miscarried her first beyond that point. Again, I’m holding on to the image in my mind of that heartbeat and the message that someone is coming.
Here’s how we told them.
I had the runs tonight. Full disclosure. Something at dinner didn’t sit right. But all the pregnancy hormones didn’t help either.
