Decisions, Decisions

Sean and I decided tonight that, should the beta be positive tomorrow, we aren't telling very many people. These are the people we will tell (of course, just in case), excepting present company, of course:

My mom and dad
My brother
My grandmother and grandfather
Sean's mom and stepfather
Sean's dad
Sean's stepbrother
Lil' Man (and the Dementor, by default)
Six close friends who have been very supportive throughout our IF journey.

Looking at the list now, it seems like a HUGE amount of people, doesn't it? But, for the most part, it is immediate family.

Sean and I agreed that, again assuming that the pregnancy test is positive, we will only tell these people, and make them swear on their future progeny's life not to tell anyone (and I mean anyone) else, just in case something (God forbid!) should happen. Maybe I'm being paranoid, but the whole IVF debacle from the last time with my mother-in-law's big yapper flying in the wind for all of her family to hear hits a little too close to home right now. So, assuming all will be well and everything works out, we could tell our families around Thanksgiving, which would really be a nice surprise.

Of course, this is also assuming that I'm pregnant, right?


Hopefully it won't make an ass out of u and me.

Oh I am no longer your buddy in P.U.P.O. I have been P.O. I really do hope your news is better.

As long as you tell your Internet family, we're OK with it.

We also prefer to keep it pretty close when we have any positives. It's like you don't want to piss off the gods by being too happy.

Thanksgiving is a nice time to tell good news :-)
