Telling People

On the day we found out we were pregnant, which you can read about here, I was in complete shock. I mean I didn’t even believe I was pregnant.

How I told People I was Pregnant

Telling People at Work

I went into work and immediately told my boss. When I walked in, we had our normal morning conversation which usually goes something like “How are you?” and “Good, and you?” But this time, my answer was that I was excellent and that I have something to tell her. She immediately said, “Please don’t tell me your pregnant.” Not exactly what I was expecting, but I was so excited at that point that I couldn’t care less.

Telling B’s Parents

Next, we told B’s parents. Unfortunately, his parents live in Oklahoma so we weren’t able to tell them in person. We called in the middle of dinner since we had to wait until I got off of work. When they answered the phone, B asked “Are you ready to be grandparents again?” They laughed and then finally understood what we were talking about. It was timeless hearing the excitement in their voices. They even mentioned coming out when the baby was born, which they haven’t ever come out here before.
