I couldn't take it any longer. I had to tell my mom. I thought about finding some clever way to share the news, but blurting it out seemed like the best option (I'm not good with surprises!). "Mom, I have to tell you something before I explode...Meg is pregnant."
She almost spit out her banana! She paused for a second and said, "What." So, I told her again..."Megan is pregnant." "Ok," she responded, but "How?"
I giggled and said, "We bought sperm!" "You mean you just went to a store and picked up sperm?" she asked. "No, we ordered it on the internet!"
She asked how Meg was feeling and if anyone else knew. She then told me to start picking out a boy's name (everyone around us seems to be pregnant with girls).
After about a half hour of talking I had to leave to go meet a friend for breakfast, but I decided to text my mom and thank her for being supportive. She called me back crying. I asked her why she was crying and she told me, "This is great. We needed this."
Dad text me later on saying, "Is it true? Am I really going to be a grandpa? I owe you both a big hug. You're going to make awesome parents. Love you"
Talk about a great way to start your day!!! After breakfast, I drove 40 minutes to catch Meg on her lunch break...I needed to see her smile and give her a hug.
I then went to share the news with my Nana and my aunt. Again, I was greeted with "how?" Mom and I just laughed.
It's been an emotional day. I'm absolutely exhausted.
I'm very fortunate to have such a loving and supportive family. I just hope we get the same reaction from Meg's family...stay tuned.
