What do you think will be the hardest thing to go without during your pregnancy?  Sleeping on your tummy? Alcohol?  Sushi?  What will you miss the most over the next 9 months?

LOVE these fun ideas!  Anyone planning to do something fun like this to announce their pregnancy?

My parents had kindly asked me about 6 months ago to wait a few years to have a baby, because my older sister was about to have her fifth baby (finally, a nephew!). I promised them that would not be a problem....however...

I'm now seven weeks pregnant due in September with a surprise baby. I'm very excited and I want them to be too. So, I'm preparing their "belated Christmas gift" to give them when I see them in three weeks just after Valentine's Day. I thought about giving them a V-Day gift, but I never do that so they would know something is up. However, this year they asked me not to get them Christmas gifts AND the baby was conceived around Christmas. So it makes a bit more sense. 

I'm putting together a little gift bag. On the top it will have a copy of "How to Prevent Anxiety and Panic Attacks", followed by a copy each of "I Love You Grandpa" and "I Love You Grandma", then a block that says "The best parents get promoted to grandparents." and a little tiny box. When they open the box it will have a little handmade strawberry and a note that says "10 weeks". I'm hope that if they see me giggling when they open it  that they will be as happy as I am. :) 

Best, Jessie
