    All best wishes for you. Are you sure you want to involve cousins yet? I would be inclined to have the shirts on hold for a while. Or maybe give them to the parents for later distribution? I do love the cousin shirt idea.
    Anyway, I’m so happy for you! Still remember your wedding thread!

    @dragonmom the cousins are 2, 9 mo, and 8 mo. They're not going to know what's going on lol. Even if something happens, this will probably be the only time I'm with all of them without the grandparents for a long while (and I plan on surprising the grandparents with that particular picture). I'm taking a picture of them in the shirts even if this pregnancy doesn't go to term. When I'm ready to tell Mr R's parents and go public, I'll use that picture as part of my announcement.

    If they were older and could understand what was going on, I would feel very different. One SIL already knows and all siblings-in-law know I'm trying. We're a very, very close knit bunch.

    @droppedit I've been open with a handful of close family and friends about everything that's happened. My siblings-in-law will instantly know something is going on when they don't see me drinking caffeine during our vacation. They've known me for nearly a decade and they know I'm an addict. They all know

    Even if I fool them then, they'll figure it out when I'm not taking the meds that make me sick and going in for ultrasound appointments. These are the only people who will know until at least 12 weeks - maybe longer because of the fetal heart block possibility. I stay with my sisters-in-law at least once a week (they live close to the archives where I do my research so I stay with them) so they'll figure it out and I'd rather tell them on my terms.

    I truly do understand what you guys are saying though and agree. But I brought this on myself by being open about my infertility. Outside of that small, very tightly-knit group, I'm keeping my mouth shut until at least around Halloween.

    I think you need the support of all for good times and bad. Celebrate every moment.

    (I can't believe you've kept it quiet from Mr. R! That's willpower!)

    OH Geez..are you my real D? I love vodka and cranberry and Blue Moon with a thin slice of orange. So we are on....
    Whatever you decide will be ok for you. Heartbreak is heartbreak no matter when it happens but with a few of us toasting your pg to the gods and angels and fairies it will be ok in the end.
    I may have posted this before but-- One of my therapy clients struggled mightily and then had twins. She reminded me that I told her she would have children within a year by birth or adoption. She just sent me pictures of her two girls turning one. Full term pg. So! I promise to think of you for every cranberry vodka and Blue Moon coming up.

    Funny that just yesterday I had a hankering, and bought a bottle of cranberry to go with my Tito's 🙂

    Congrats! 🤞
