    I'm still super early so I only feel totally confident sharing this with my online "friends" but I took a pregnancy test and IT WAS POSITIVE!!!!! I'm at about 5 weeks.

    I shared it with my husband and he didn't believe me. Tonight I rented "What to Expect When You're Expecting" and he says "Oh, since you THINK your pregnant, you got this movie huh?" He made me go and take another test to prove to him that I was pregnant. He's still freaking out.

    I want to find a super cute way to tell my family. They live a state away so it'll have to be through mail, email, or phone... How did you tell your fam!?!?

    Congrats!!!!!! My husband and I have been trying for a little while, so I'm hoping this will be me soon!

    I've thought about how I would tell my family, and I considered mailing my mom something that says World's Best Grandma (or something like that).

    I have a friend who is a photographer, she takes pictures of the couple holding a sign that tells the due date...so cute.



    Congrats!

    Happy Dance!

    I too like the Thanksgiving idea. If you pray on Thanksgiving, I can just hear the excitement during your prayer "....and Lord, we are so grateful that next Thanksgiving we will be adding another chair to this table."

    Or...How about a photo with you and your hubby holding a sign that says something like "And then there were three". Hide it within 5-10 other photos.

    Or sending everyone your letter to Santa... requesting all baby items!!

    I can see it now....

    Dear Santa,

    I know it's a bit early, but I have kind of an unusual list this year. And I really, REALLY want this stuff, so I wanted to get my list in to your elves nice and early. Some of the stuff is kind of big though. If it's not against the rules, you could work something out with the Easter Bunny, since I won't be needing the stuff until the spring.

    I've been a good girl this year (though you could have fun with that line if you wanted to.) I've tried hard to be a good teacher. I love my kids the year, but as you know, that's easy, because I love kids.

    Anyway, I hope you and Mrs. Claus and all the elves are doing OK. Here's my list:

    - a Crib, suitable for a newborn
    - a stroller, suitable for a newborn
    - LOTS of diapers, size newborn
    - formula
    - a high chair

    Thanks so much Santa. Next year, look to receive an extra letter from my house.

    Love..

    I love the Christmas letter!!!! That's really cute!!!!
    I had the idea last night of getting plain white plates and painting something on it like "I know you've got a lot on your plate, but I need to add something new..." or something like that.
    Thanksgiving is a great idea though too because we just bought tickets to go and see my parents for Thanksgiving...

    Congrats!!!!! The Christmas letter idea is so cute! That is the way a guy I used to work with found out he was going to be a grandpa. He still has the letter. :)

    Congratulations! :wub:

    I don't remember if I have posted this before, my family and my husband's family has Christmas Eve together and the year I was pregnant we were having an ornament exchange. Only our parents knew I was pregnant, no one knew it was twins. Here is the video of how they found out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrVpf6KfzfY
