I feel like I go through phases of blogging - three days of scrapbook stuff here, three days of nothing much there, three days of pregnancy stuff now... It's how I roll aight!
So I wasn't planning on telling my family at all. I was just going to have them read the blog post on April 2nd and be surprised like everyone else. But the stars aligned differently. Eric, my brother, who I hardly ever hear from, let alone get emails from, sent me, my sister, my mom, and my dad (so my entire family) an email, or rather, just a link:
The link was to this:

Not 30 seconds later my mom replied back with:
And the beans were spilled:
It's actually been so much better having my mom and family know right from the get-go. I've been able to talk to her about my problems and worries and she gets me through the tough days. So that's how my family found out. And I'm sorry cousin Ashley for straight up lying to you about it when I accidentally forwarded you the email :)
