Hiding From the In-Laws

**I am currently 13 weeks

The day after we found out that we were pregnant, my in-laws came into town for Thanksgiving! I was so excited to see them. They haven’t visited in a while, and it would be nice to have some family around.

My hubby and I had decided at the very beginning of our 3rd FET try, that we would not tell ANYONE. NO ONE knows this time. When people ask when we would try again, our answer was always the same: We’re going to take a break for a while.

#1: It’s just too hard emotionally for everyone to know.

#2: If I could get pregnant naturally, I wouldn’t tell anyone until we were ready.

#3: I didn’t want to disappoint anyone.

#4: I just didn’t want to. I was tired of it all.

So here come my in-laws. This will be their FIRST grandchild! I want to shout it from the rooftops, but we are staying cautious because of our previous miscarriage.

So, they came and it’s been really hard. First of all, I’m exhausted. I am screaming inside. I just want to sleep ALL DAY LONG. I’ve also had to sneak down to our basement to give myself the PIO (Progesterone in Oil) shots! I bet they think I’m going to the bathroom.

Then, we had our Thanksgiving turkey meal last night and I could BARELY EAT IT. The turkey really turned me off and I’d been feeling sick all day. I usually LOVE turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes. Baby WAS NOT having it.

Also, the bloat is REAL.

So that is what’s been happening so far. I will keep you updated on our progress.
