With the arrival of my period on Monday, my hopes of a Christmas surprise went out the window. I had envisioned telling my family in person by giving my 15 month old nephew this T-shirt:
Then M and I would watch everyone's faces as they realized what it meant. Oh well.
I'm sad because we had to tell our families we were engaged over the phone, and now we won't have the chance to tell them about a BFP (big fat positive) in person. I was really praying for this...I hate being so far away from my family and really wanted the chance to share this news in person (we'll be home for a week at Christmas, and I don't know how long it will be before we're able to go back). Oh well.
Wow...I think I'm saying "oh well" a bit too much...
