Secrets like ‘growing a human being’ are pretty hard to keep secret. This baby is going to be the first grandchild on both sides of the family too, which complicates the whole ‘let’s keep this a secret’ thing. Before the end of the first trimester, we scheduled our annual trip across Michigan to share the news with my mom, my sister, and his parents.
If you couldn’t tell, everyone was surprised and so at week 10, we could actually share our cautious joy with some others. It was a bit risky and we knew it since we didn’t necessarily have the Doctor’s clearing, but we just couldn’t help ourselves. We asked our support system to pray for the ‘clear’ and hope that the rest of the pregnancy goes well.
