"Outing" Ourselves

We did it. We talked to Darren's parents about how we've been trying. Man, that was hard! We were both so nervous, and no time felt like the right time. I finally just kicked Darren until he finally said that we needed to talk to them about something. Finding the words was very hard! I stumbled for a good minute until I finally spit out that we had been trying to get pregnant... for nine months now. We told them that we basically just wanted them to know what was going on, and asked them to please pray for us. We explained how Carylon says we should not worry until it has been a year, and how it is has been hard to hear of everyone around us becoming pregnant. They really were great. It was so nice to finally be able to tell them. Darren's mom and I are close. We are great friends. It has been killing me that I have not been able to talk to her about these things, especially since others know and not her. It felt liberating, yet so freaking scary, to tell them finally! They talked to us about how we need to relax and let it happen - which everyone tells us that - and we agreed. They also told us that it would be ok, and that we shouldn't worry. It was nice to hear someone tells us that it will be ok. Those simple words left such a huge print on my heart. Andrea said she had figured that we had been trying, she just didn't know for how long. And, I felt bad that we were telling her that we're not pregnant instead of pregnant and she said not to worry about that.

So, all in all, it went really well, and we are so glad that we have some more people on our side, helping to pray for us! We will work on the relaxing and having fun, and will keep updating on our progress! ;-)

  1. YAY! So glad it went well. Hopefully you can tell them "just kidding, we're expecting!" in a couple weeks! ; )
