The biggest surprise

Here's a picture of my mom and niece/nephews as they met us at the airport two weeks ago in Seattle.

Do you see my mom's smile? Why is she so much more than normally excited to see me?

Because I am 7.5 months pregnant and she had no idea. Mwahahahahahahahaha.

I have a video of her first reaction, too. What I wish I had a video of is my MIL's reaction when we pulled up in Idaho Falls on Sunday afternoon. That was a double surprise, or a reverse surprise, or something, because we suspected she had already found out. So I just stepped out of the car, all nonchalant-like, and then I myself was surprised when she was surprised.

I'll post an FAQ post later, because during this whole surprising-everyone process, there have been plenty of FA'd Qs. I'm just glad the news is out and I can stop worrying that our master plan would be foiled.

The biggest surprise SUCCESS!

Wait, did you just say what I thought you said? And does this mean that Jeremy's April Fool's joke was actually NOT a joke?

Also, I was so shocked I just posted that first comment with my work account, so feel free to delete it :S

WHAT?!!?! Are you kidding me? That is awesome! I mean, I'm so SO excited that you're pregnant (I am totally shocked!), but that is awesome that you didn't tell anyone! 7.5 months?! I can't believe you could wait that long. Congratulations again and again and again!

You are the second friend this week to make such an announcement (in a way that *really* surprised me). Congratulations! I'm so excited for you!

Jenn Ridgeway said...

Congratulations! Now I'm going to obsessively look through the last several months' posts to see how you've sneakily avoided showing a full picture of yourself ('cause, yeah, I'm that kind of reader).

Amanda Ball said...

What the what?!

Mabruk!!!

Jen said...

Well, first of all (and most importantly), I'd like to express my displeasure that you waited until Google Reader died so that I had to be a day late in reading this. Is THAT what you were waiting for?

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is all kinds of exciting for about four-thousand different reasons. I already have a running FAQ running through my head.

THIS. IS. AWESOME.

(And I thought I was sneaky for not announcing my last pregnancy on facebook...which DID throw a FEW people--and made me wonder what they thought was happening to my body. But I digress.)

YAY!

Liz Johnson said...

NO FREAKING WAY. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!??!!?

!!!!!!!!!!!!! CONGRATS!!!!!! And amazing surprise!!!

Good luck! I think your best bet is pictures from when we were in Germany. It's amazing what a scarf and coat can do for concealing your figure. :)

Whoa! This is awesome! My mom almost killed me for waiting 5 months to tell her. I am excited to hear about your baby, pregnancy, and delivery. Did you find out the baby's sex?
