    Red face Wonderful news for me!

    I have been very good...My kids told me to wait until they told me I could tell...so, I just got the go ahead about an hour ago....I'm going to be a GRANDMA!!!! DDIL is high risk and didn't want to tell the world until after her 1st trimester...
    This is going to be our first grandchild! Spoiling and loving will be such fun...
    I have tried so hard not to slip and announce it here...but now I can shout it out! Woo Hoo!!!
    Plus, you know what this means, don't you? Tink is going to be an Auntie!!! Her big brother (my son) is going to be the daddy...

    I hope she has no problems anywhere along the way. You are going to fall in love as you have never fallen before. Our first Grandchild was a girl, now 25, it was love at first sight, she has always been the apple of my eye and still is. All 7 of my Grands are very special to me but, just something about the first, a touch more special. Enjoy.

    Congrats! The feeling of being a grandmother for the first time is indescribable! There IS something special about that first one even though you will adore any further DGBs. My first is 21, almost 22, and he's still my baby. He allows me to call him that but my DGD won't let me for some reason. She's 16 going on 17!!

    Keep us posted on your DDIL's progress and hopefully things will go smoothly!!

    I am so happy for you! Our DD's second pregnancy was high risk, but thankfully, the baby and mummy are doing well. I will be sending strong positive healthy-baby thoughts in your family's direction. You know what else this means??? You have to make a baby quilt!

    So happy for this news for you & for your DS & DDIL! I too know how hard it is to keep such exciting news under my hat! Last year, our DD & hubby were finally able to conceive after 4 years of trying. She gave birth to a wonderful delightful little boy on Oct. 19. Last year was full of many ups & downs for our family, and this was definitely one of the best UPS! Enjoy that baby when he/she gets here and pray non stop in the mean time.

    I believe its the best time of Life. Nothing like that feeling of being a Gramma for the first time.

    Congratulations! I know my time will come to have grandkids and am anxiously waiting! I have four daughters and they are all unmarried at this point (not all of them are old enough), but I am looking forward to it. Good for you!

    This is great news.I will pray everything goes well. Each one is just as exciting as the first. Our 26th is due in April and I am excited. It is a boy and out of all those GKs there are only 4 boys.
