My husband saw the tests the same time I did. We called our parents to tell them and everyone else found out whenever we saw them and mentioned it.

My husband and I worked in the same office, so I called him into the store room and told him. :)  For my parents we invited ourselves over for a meal and told them then, called his parents.

My husband was home with me each time I took a pregnancy test. We were trying, my period hadn't come, but we both thought it was just because I was off the pill for only a month, not that I was pregnant. It took a week to get a positive test. We told everyone else that I was pregnant at 12 weeks, and then at 19 weeks we did a gender reveal, and that is when we told them we were having TWO boys. Until then they all thought it was just one baby.

This is so cool! The gender reveal surprise must have been so much fun!  How did you do it, say the gender was a boy, and a boy? :)

It was awesome!

We did cakes, and had two. We brought out the first one, and it said Baby A is, and everyone assumed it was a mistake, that it should have been Baby is a, until we brought out the second cake that said Baby B is. It was total silence when my husband brought out the second cake and we cut into it.

Nope, they won't!! I can't believe they'll be here in 10 days. It seems like just yesterday that we actually did the reveal!

Yes it does! I'm not actually due until March 25th, but the doctors all think it's best if they come earlier, so c-section on the 25th of this month!
