Eager to tell our parents the good news

We were beyond thrilled to tell our parents but we wanted to wait till we went home for Thanksgiving. We thought of cute ways to spill the beans. We bought our favorite children's books and wrote inside as if from the baby- please read to me July 2013, love your grand baby. I was definitely feeling pregnant and I had terrible morning sickness and fatigue. I wanted to tell everyone so they'd understand why I was acting the way I was. 
My parents came to pick us up from the airport and it was so hard to keep it from them I was just bursting with excitement! I decided it would be fun to take my parents to Rubys Diner a restaurant with sentimental value. I called the restaurant ahead and told them that I wanted to order a shake with pickles and explained my whole weird way of telling my parents that we were pregnant. We sat down and they delivered the shake to me. I just about threw up looking at it let alone almost drinking it. My mom looked at me and said, "what is that some sort of pregnancy shake?" Meanwhile my daddy is clueless and is ordering his hamburger. My mom is beside herself about to jump up and down squealing with excitement! My dad finally catches on and we then gave them the children's book. Oh my gosh that was so fun!!! We were so happy and we couldn't wait to see Kyle's parents reaction.
That night we went over to the Evans and it was perfect because it was just them and we sat on the couch and asked them to open the gift. They were very confused when they opened the book Go Dog Go. Kyle filmed the whole thing of his mom getting all emotional as she realizes that this morse has come true. It was so hard keeping it from our siblings. Keith and Andrea noticed something was up with me and even guessed that I might've be pregnant. My older sister Anne thought I was depressed because of infertility and my mom and I would laugh because that couldn't have been any further from the truth. They both just saw my fatigue that hit me like a ton of bricks. With Anne she would ask me to do things and I was too tired to get off the couch. 
The trip was wonderful and the day after Thanksgiving we left for Maui with Kyle's parents. Maui was so gorgeous but I was too sick to do anything! I threw up morning, noon, and night! I even thought wow I'm so sick I wonder if I'm having twins. Debi and I talked about it because it was always a possibility seeing as though I drop 2-3 eggs when I ovulate sorry if that's TMI. Anyway I would stop thinking about twins because I didn't want to get my hopes up. 
Flying home from Maui was awful! I threw up the entire flight and bled a lot! I remember praying the whole way home for the baby. We were terrified that it might've been a miscarriage. I bled for 2 days and the second we landed in Richmond we went to the doctor.
