  • Right away, I didn't wait.....even when I was just guessing that I might be. Back in the day when I was having babies they didn't have Home Pregnancy Tests. It was pretty much guessing until your first OB appointment. But I told everyone anyway because I was so happy. ;-)

  • I told my mom right away, even though I was 28yrs old when i had my first i texted my cuz i knew he was gonna be pissed and i was afraid to tell him. But for the most part I couldn't hold that exciting news in and flapped my lips right
