Dang PAL Brain! Chickened out on telling DS today :/

So I have been planning on telling my DS about the baby (his soon to be half brother or sister) today.. I wanted to make sure all was well at my last appointment on Monday.. which it was.. we saw the baby kicking its legs and squirming and doing great. I also wanted to wait until after Christmas just in case he didnt take it well, although I am pretty sure he will be excited.. and I wanted it to be when he was on vacation from school and would be at our house for a few days in a row.. so we would have time to discuss it rather than dropping it on him and then him going to his dads the next morning. UGH! My mom has already called twice asking if I told him yet.. and DH has been bugging me to tell him all day long.. but I have let my dang PAL brain take over and now I am going to postpone it at least till tomorrow. I have had really bad morning sickness and have been on zofan for weeks.. but even with that I was still nauseous and/or puking once a day.. havent puked for at least 4 days and the nausea is barely there.. I know.. should be totally psyched about that and more than likely its just cause I am almost 14 1/2 wks and I am finally off my progesterone completely.. but I still worry since with DS I was sick till he was born if not on meds. Plus my boobs arent as sore.. still tender.. but decreasingly so.. and even the round ligament pain that has been plaguing me for weeks I am not noticing today. All that and I havent felt movement.. which the Dr said not to expect to till 16-18wks.. and my stupid doppler only finds my pulse, not the baby's.. which since im a bit more padded than i was with DS and I had it with him much later.. not a surprise as well.. DH says just tell him im sure its all fine.. and I know that is

((((HUGS)))) I wanted to tell my boys earlier then my husband did. But I think I might have chickened out myself if he had not push it back. We did not tell till 15 weeks (I think) and I only insisted then because I felt I need much more help around here and needed to be able to use the pregnancy as the excuse for passing of more chores on them. I hope you find the courage to tell soon and then go on to have a happy healthy uneventful
