how we told the parents

each parent got the same frame with the same 3 pictures. a 5 day blast, 9 weeks & 13 weeks. we hadn't told them about us trying or having issues or IVF or anything- so i thought this would be a classy way to give them the news & also show them what we went through at the same time.

his parents were happy- but not over the top like i thought they might be. much more subdued- but still happy. i explained IVF to them but i don't think they reeeeally get it. oh well.

my mother on the other hand- jeeze. you wouldn't think the woman already had 4 grandkids. she was flipping out & screaming & going on. she had also called my brother earlier & told him that she knew we were coming over to tell them that we were ku- she's insane! i explained IVF to her & she was totally interested, so that was cool.

the other thing is that my mil wants a girl (because she has no girls in her family) but my mother wants a girl because they already have 4 granddaughters- yeeee! i wish i could deliver both but i can't- the thing is, is that my fingers are crossed for a boy too, so i think my mil is a little bummed. ah well.

so yeah- i also "came out" on facebook & myspace so i had tons of calls & well wishes today. i still haven't told work though- it's kind of funny & i like having this "secret" :)
