At a certain point, announcing a pregnancy can be stressful. It’s jumping mental hurdles, and sometimes takes a while before you make the plunge. Expecting baby 11.

We went to my parents’ the day after Christmas. My parents, brother and his girlfriend, nephews, and Sister were there. I wore my pregnancy announcement shirt. Lol!
**23 weeks tomorrow (Saturday)**

I ran to the store and my sister told her son (17 yrs old) that she thinks I might be pregnant. He told her “That would explain her shirt”. Ha ha ha!! She didn’t even notice my shirt. She was excited and asking if I was feeling kicks yet.

My mom already knew because she asked a couple weeks ago (we only see each other once a month or so and I’ve been bundled up due to the cold lately). My dad laughed and asked if I was going for a dozen or bakers dozen. 🙂
It was a good experience.
Now, to let my inlaws know. Or not. >.>
They’re negative Nancy’s.

LOL!  That's a good story!  Totlly oblivious to what is right in front of their eyes, haha!  Glad things wen't well...hopefully the inlaws go the same.  I was preparing for the fact that someone would probably mention my age.  Nobody did...to me.  The one person that did was my husbands Aunt.  She immediately called my husband and said..."how old are you?"  And "how old is Angela?"  The next phone call was..."do you guys have the space for a baby?"  LOL.  It's not like we live in a shack.  Our kids do share rooms, I don't think she would ever have kids share rooms...but she has an only child, haha!

This is baby number 5 for us. I totally feel you in this. Besides grandparents (who had 11 and 7 kids) most my family members have 2-3 kids. When I had my fourth I got all the congrats but I also got I hope you aren’t thinking about having more. I was pretty nervous to announce this pregnancy but it went fairly well. Close family are super happy and a little more distant family don’t seem to care very much.
