I'll tell ya what really threw me for a loop. I was at a Relief Society broadcast talking to several friends about being pregnant and figuring out how far along I am when they said I was 6 weeks. I was like say what?! I was under the impression I was only 2-4 weeks along and then I find out nope you are 6 weeks along Emily. WOW! Already over a month and I didn't even know it.
I'm just so excited, I can't keep this to myself. I've told almost every I know one way or another. We started with immediate family first. My mom knew first thing in the morning. I pinged her on IM and woke her up. We told Jared's parents in the afternoon. Jared's mom has definitely given the most dramatic reaction compared to anyone. I wish I had had a camera to record that one. I'm going to have to journal all the reactions because I find them all so entertaining.
For those who know Jared he likes to tease a lot and get a reaction from people. So we couldn't just tell some people we had to be creative.
- So with his parents we were talking about vacations next year and said you shouldn't go on one in May next year. They were like why? Jared said "Because you'll want to be around when your grand baby is born right?!"
- With my friend Sara I called her and asked her why she doesn't eat chocolate when she's pregnant. She said because it makes her sick. I had just had a chocolate Oreo & cookie dough blizzard and it tasted like bananas instead of chocolate. VERY DISAPPOINTING! She asked me why I asked and I said because I ate a chocolate blizzard and it tasted like a banana so my taste buds must be all mixed up. She was like are you pregnant?!
- With Jacki my sister in-law we called and asked "what's the name and number of your OB GYN?" She responds "Morell. Why?" Jared said "Do you really have to ask?"
(Disclaimer: None of these are verbatim. Jared will remember better than me and say I quoted it wrong.)
I am just so excited to join the ranks of motherhood and share in the joys of it. This is a very exciting time for Jared and I and Olga.
