Cat’s Out of the Bag

This week my husband and I plan to tell our closest friends and family that we’re pregnant. We’ve been keeping the news to ourselves as we get through the first trimester, but now that we’ve made it into the third month we’ve decided to share our news with the people we love.

I’ve held back on blogging about this because some of my close friends are readers of One Frugal Girl and although I don’t know how often they glance at my posts I didn’t want them to read about it, before I got a chance to tell them.

The little one is set to arrive at the end of October. I hope and pray that he or she will be happy and healthy. When I told my mom the big news she said it’s good to let people know you’re pregnant, because the more people who know the more people can pray for your health and the health of your baby. I thought that was a sweet thing for her to say.

The whole idea of having a baby is suddenly feeling more real to me. I was so cautious in the first few months that I’m not sure I really let the idea settle in, but things feel different now that we’ve told our close friends and family.
