  • I told her on mother's day. Letting her know that next year that she wouldn't be the only one celebrating.

  • My Mom had asked me what we should get my sister for her birthday. I answered "How about a niece or nephew?" I was 6 months pregnant at the time. ;) Then my baby was born 2 weeks later. Preeclampsia, bummer. But he was a totally healthy 3 lb. 4 oz. baby boy with no difficulties except keeping his temp up, but he overcame that in 1 week. And yes he came 2 days after my sis's bday, so it was like a present. lol.

  • The first time I got pregnant I just just turned 18 so when I told her, it was in person, and I believe it was the words "it figures" came out of her mouth LOL. (Of course after she was used to it she loved the idea of being Nana) The second time I just called because we we're overseas, and this time I just called again. We are so original :P The best calls were when we knew what we were having, and then having the baby :)

  • I also told my mother on mother's day, but only because that was also the same day I found out I was expecting.

  • I have a nosy, hard-to-please Mom.

    When we found out, my husband and I decided to sell 2 of our 3 horses. I changed my voice mail message to say, "Hey, it's me, if you know me, you know what to do. If you're calling about the horses, please leave a name and number and a good time to reach you! Thanks!"

    My mom called, and the not-so-pro-horse-person she is says, "You're getting rid of those flippin' thangs? Good riddance! Why?"

    "I don't have much of a choice, Mom."

    "Why's that? Hubby decide he's tired of taking on your responsibilities already?"


    "YOU got tired of taking care of them?"

    "No... we have another priority---"

    "Spending that money on yourselves?"

    "No, we're going to have a baby!"

    She asked me ELEVEN (11) TIMES if I was serious or just pulling her leg... and now she won't leave me alone... she wants me to send pictures

  • nothing creative... I broke down in tear and said im pregnant(i don't know why i cried:) while she was very exited...
    But I've seen on America's funniest home video this couple wrote a little poem as if its coming from a baby, and gave a card with a poem to a grandma... it was so cute
    also my coworke put a posetive preg. test into jewerly box(from a braclet) and gave it to her hubby:)
