they keep crying whenever they see us, they tell us over and over again how hard
they are praying for us. So today when we were there for dinner, opening gifts and
eating pie, It just felt like the right time. I told my nieces about the "secret" and
they ran right away to tell "Yia Yia" about it. "Yia Yia" to them is my MIL, she was
in the kitchen when they told her and all we could hear in the living room is sobbing.
My hubby then told his grandmother and she began to sob as well, I guess all of
their praying really payed off, I hope they keep it up :)
Tomorrow we are heading to Nova Scotia to be with my family for the Holidays, I
know I will also have to tell them, otherwise I will be sleeping in the smoke & cat
filled basement. I think I will get my nephew to tell my parents as well, it's a little
easier that way 'cause I either burst into tears when I talk about it, or I go stiff as
a board depending on my confidence level that day. I know my parents will be happy,
but I worry the most about letting my mom know. She has suffered a few losses in
her life and I was old enough to remember them happening. I really don't want her
to worry too much about it, I hope, like me she can try to enjoy it one day at a time.
I know its really early, as of tomorrow I am only 7 weeks along (according to my widget),
but it's the holidays and I really want to spread good news. Besides It would be very much
out of character for me to turn down alcohol over the holidays so I'm sure they would
have all figured it out anyway. I really hope that I am not making a huge mistake by
telling everyone but I really feel like I could use some positive energy surrounding the
pregnancy and I wouldn't have felt right keeping it from them over Christmas. Please
pray that this was the right thing to do!!!!
If I don't have access to internet over the next two weeks (although I am sure I will),
I really want you all to have a VERY HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON, your all amazing,
strong, gorgeous woman, and I would have never made it through 2010 without you!!!!
