Telling my mom {and Ray via phone}!!!

Since Charles and I had decided to tell our parents in person, I had to figure out a way to see my mom and Ray. This was going to be difficult. At least my dad and Jodi were conveniently going to be coming thru and Charles was already going down to visit his parents this weekend as well.

So I came up with a lie. I'm not proud of lying but this was a much needed lie to get her here. I called my mom the day we found out {talk about hard to keep it a secret!} and told her I was having Ovarian Drilling in a week and Charles would be in Georgia so could she come to take me to/from and care for me over the weekend. She said she would call me back as she had to notify her boss and get my older brother Matt to put her on a flight out here Thursday evening.

So all week long, I had to continue to not only keep it a secret but talk about Ovarian Drilling while touching my belly and whispering to the baby that it's not going to happen it's just a fib to tell Nana about him/her... :-) Not to mention, Charles and I would give each other such a hard time! When one of us was on the phone with anyone, particularly our unknowing parents, we would mouth "baby" or "we're pregnant" or dance around in front of the other in excitement to make it all that much harder not to tell right then and there! We had fun with it. :-)

So when my mom finally arrived after being bumped Thurs night from her original flight, it was late and I knew I could not keep it in any longer than necessary!!! When we got home, I immediately handed mom the ziploc bag full of index cards telling her the book's done as well and then said I also had a gift thanking her for being such a source of encouragement throughout it. Mom immediately blurted out, "Now you can get pregnant!" when she saw it was complete! Made me chuckle. :-)

I will say. Mom was at a slight disadvantage and completely off guard thinking that I was having a procedure done the next day to help getting pregnant so it took her a minute to get it which was hilarious! I'm sure it being almost midnight didn't help any...

So here is her video! :-)

That was priceless! Your mom was so cute, jumping up and down! And that moment at the beginning as she was just figuring it out and then you could actually see the lightbulb go on over her head. Awesome!!!
