Being Prego

I think my cravings have begun. I have wanted Chinese food for the past few days. I neeeeeeed crab rangoons and I'm making it my goal to get them ASAP. Everyone needs goals, right? ;-) Otherwise, I seem to go from eating a lot to being disgusted by food. And usually when I want food it has to be EXACTLY what I want. I am not usually this picky.

It's one week until our Florida trip. I am looking forward to getting into some decent weather and I have SO much to do. I need to buy some clothes for both me and the boys. I feel like a bloated beast in all my current clothes and the boys need some "fancy" clothes. Mary wanted to dress them the same as her sister's boys for the wedding pictures. Her sister hasn't gotten back to her but she still wants to do this.

This is just weird and so un-Mary like which leaves me confused and annoyed because I've had to wait to shop. I told her I was getting them at the end of this week no matter what. She wants us to get our clothes for the wedding while we're in Florida. I finally agreed since there isn't crap up here for us but I don't want to HAVE to do any more shopping than that. It's already going to be difficult because we'll need to find someone to watch the boys while we shop.

We have also debated telling Mary's family I'm pregnant while we're down there. As of now, only a handful of people IRL know I'm prego. Only two friends that were following my fertility madness and my mom. I probably wouldn't have told my mom but last time she was up, I told her about the clomid and the sperm arrived while she was in town.

I kind of feel we should wait until post first trimester to tell most people. Mary thinks we never see her family so it would be nice to tell them in person. We both agree we shouldn't tell until after the wedding since it's Jill's time and we don't want the congratulations on us. So I guess we'll see if there's a good time after the wedding to tell or not. :-)

I agree...don't say anything until you hit the 3 month mark.

Yeah, I'm with you. I also feel like we should tell them on the phone so they'll have time to react. Mary's family is very accepting of her being a lesbian and of our relationship, but I think they'll need time to digest that I'm pregnant.
