We decided to tell our family we were finally having a baby about two months in. We couldn’t hide it anymore, we were so filled with excitement. About that time is when the nausea kicked in so I didn’t feel too great. All I wanted to do was lay in bed, I was so tired, and I felt like I was getting a cold almost everyday. But I soldiered though so we could share the great news.
Seconds before we told everyone my parents surprised my three sisters, their husbands, all their kids, and my husband and I with a cruise. And so, when our happy moment came next the family soon found out that we ruined their free trip because our precious miracle was due around the time we would all be sailing the ocean blue. My whole family went on the cruise together or none of us went, my parents decided.
The cruise was canceled but there was talk about whether we could take the baby on the ship soon after it was born. Or could our parents pay the doctor’s way on the cruise and I could deliver the baby while we were drifting about at sea? With our surprise sunk I found out timing really is everything.
What do you think? How did you tell everyone you were having a baby? What was their reaction?
