Immediate family knew right away when I was pregnant with both Samantha and Jordyn. When I became pregnant with Ryan we were not trying and decided to wait to tell anyone. We waited till I was 13 weeks. Ryan was born sleeping at 22.5 weeks. When I became pregnant with Caden we decided not to wait.
My thought was I needed all the support I could get. I had lost his brother 7 months earlier. I had x-rays, cat-scans, heavy narcotics and surgery all while pregnant with Caden. Found out I was pg 1 week after surgery for kidney stones. I was a hysterical mess to say the least. My OB was wonderful, but I needed the love, support and strength of friends and family.
We do however, honor the Jewish thought on baby showers and wait until after the birth. In conjuction with the Bris or Naming we have had our "parties".
