We bought them a picture frame that said "world's best grandparents" and gave it to them.

I agree with whoever said to wait until after 12 weeks to tell everyone except immediate family.

Tell your IMMEDIATE FAMILY now. Wait to tell your friends and other family members after the first trimester. Trust me


This. My wife is 13 weeks prego and we just told all of our friends yesterday. We only originally told parents, siblings, and a few friends who we went to Cancun with b/c we knew they would question why she wasn't drinking. As far as how to tell, I wanted to just say, hey we having a kid but that wasn't good enough for her. We got married in April and wore Chucks for the wedding so we took a picture of both of us with Chucks on with a small pair of Chucks next to ours and it said Coming Soon.

re: Telling my parents they will be grandparents tomorrow


We're both 27 and didn't want to wait till our 30's. The main thing though is that her body doesn't naturally produce eggs and she's known for a few years that getting pregnant may not be that easy. She began taking shots and a medicine daily to help her body begin to ovulate. They had to keep adjusting the dosage b/c it wasn't working and then on the last time they could up the dosage, it worked. The doctor said going in that chances were pretty good that we would probably have to try In Vetro if we wanted kids but everything worked out well so far. So it did happen a little sooner than planned but we knew that it was a possibility and discussed that and are very greatful that it did. She's due Feb 3.

Gotcha. Congratulations

OP....don't give a positive pregnancy test to them, that's just gross. And a jar of Prego?? Y'all actually looked on Pinterest to find a creative way and that was the best idea you saw?

I agree with others that say to wait till at least 12 weeks and think y'all need another creative way to tell them, IMO.

I agree with Nurse who agrees with the others who said wait until you have a creative way to tell them.

I hate the term preggo or preggers as well so seeing that jar would make me cringe.

I would guve them a childhood keepsake like a Dr. Suess book or a toy as opposed to a can of terrible sauce

Trying too hard. I can also guarantee this couple will have a gender reveal party.

But aside from that, congrats, being a parent is a wonderful thing.
