  • We called my husbands mom after every appointment and emailed her the ultrasound pictures after we got them. She didnt make it down for the birth but she came in when my daughter was 3 weeks old and stayed for a week. We all have a facebook account and she sees all the updated pictures. We also call her when she has done something new like roll over (still working on this) or grabbing toys. She wants to move here so bad so she can see her a little more often.

  • I started a blog for our family and sent everyone links to it. I text my MIL and stepmom after my appointments. I would text my mom but she uses a cell phone for really old people or toddlers and it has no texting. Seriously she needs to get into the 21st century already. She only has a computer because my husband replaced some parts in my old one and I hooked it up for her.

  • I have a blog at It's very easy. FREE! And you na put in up to so many (i think 10) emails, and when you add a new entryy it shoots it out to the emails. It's great! Plus there is no sign in or sign up mess for those who aren't tech savy! MY's just a website!

  • I just send an email to everyone once there is enough good (or bad) information that I think everyone would want to know! I generally talk to my MIL and my stepmom every day, so they get daily updates, haha.
