Hi all,
I just found out I am pregnant with number two - YEAY!!! I have almost 5 year old girl. My husband already knows and is excited. I am a bit scared to tell my mom. When I mentioned a second one before she always said u guys should not, because u r older (36) now and your first one is so lively that you will have full hands with her etc. Basically she doesn't think it would be ideal. I am trying to figure out how to tell her and so I wanted to know how all of you told your husbands but especially families.

Tank you for your responses in advance.

You and your husband are happy then that is all that matters. Don't let your mother or anyone darken your joy. Tell her when you are ready to deal with the stress. Don't worry about it right now. You told the most important person first.

I live in London (where my husband and his family are from) and my family lives in Nebraska (USA) We found out we were pregnant on December 11th, 2008 right before we were leaving to spend the holidays with my family. I decided on Christmas Eve to wrap my pregnancy test and give it to my parents as a gift. I was going to wait until Christmas day, but my grandma was making dinner and she wanted all the adults to have this cocktail she'd made so I gave them their present before dinner. I have a fantastic picture of my mom's face like :O!!! and my dad's face like :-S coz he wanted to know why we'd given them a thermometer!! When we got back to the UK and had Christmas with my husband's family we wrapped up a onesie that said "baby of the family" because our baby was their first grandchild.

My daughter is 18 months now and we're not planning another baby any time soon, but I do know that when we do have another I want to get my daughter a "Big Sister" tshirt and take a picture of her in it, frame it, and give it to the grandparents!

We are on our second pregnancy as well. When we told my parents it was an interesting situation. My dad was in town on business and had come down for dinner. So we called Mom to let her know he was there. Then we showed him our daughter's new shirt. He read "I'm a big sister" and it took him about 30 seconds before it registered. Then he said" Wait a minute. Are you telling me something?"
Mom, on the phone said "What's going on"
We replied "We're having a new baby in June!"
As for my mother in law. We called her up and asked her what she was doing in June. When she, suspiciously, asked why, we said it was to come and visit her new grandbaby.
