Once you get your BFP, when will you tell your family and friends?

Our immediate family we will probably tell right away, but I will probably wait to tell friends (just in case) - except for you ladies of course, but you are like family.

If we get PG this cycle, we're planning on wrapping baby gifts w/ a pic of the BFP (i'm hoping) to our mothers for Christmas. Then word will flow like crazy with them.

Considering Christmas, but we may wait....might tell my mom first (maybe around Thanksgiving with direction NOT to tell anyone that talks to my MIL!) I am only concerned about what my in-laws will say!

Well I always wanted to tell everyone at once, but getting my dad and stepmom and mother in the same room is hard...as well as getting my in laws there too. However, we are hoping to be pregnant by March, because my brother is getting married and everyone will be together. Last thing I wanna do is ruin my brother's big day but I only see my family once a year and this will probably be it. Was planning on telling them maybe at his rehearsal dinner, not on the wedding day. Sometime that week though, it will be exciting!

We'll tell my immediate family and my best friend right away, but we'll have to break it to his family gently. (His mom didn't want him to marry me, or anyone else for that matter, so I can't imagine how she'll react to this). As for everyone else, I'll probably try to keep it quiet for as long as possible just in case . I'm already worried and I'm not even pg yet.....

I was really hoping to have a BFP before Thanksgiving......but since I am waiting until the day AFTER Thanksgiving to test, I dont know how I will do it.
I would really like to do it a Christmas, but I really dont think I will be able to wait that long if I were to get a BFP. Sooo.....I always thought that when I got pregnant I would so something like get one of those shirts that says "Baby on Board" or the one with a crown that says "Fertility Queen" and then just wear it to my family's house and let them notice my shirt. They would freak out. LOL.

Good Luck and baby dust to all TTCers!!!

Casey

Our immediate families will know right away. I'm sure that that wil trickle down to other family members rather quickly. I hope to wait to tell friends and such till after the first trimester, but we'll have to see if i can keep my excitedness in!

When we get our BFP, I want to plan how to tell our families. Of course it will have to be within the week we get it because, well, I have a BIG MOUTH!!!! I'll try and keep it a secret from friends, but I'm sure word will travel fast!

If I'm pregnant which I believe I am ... I will find out on Monday when I take the blood test. We'll write a letter stating, "Jason and Katie are expecting their first child together and in celebration to that, they're getting married!" Mail it to both of our parents in a Christmas Card. The letter was Jason's idea as we were discussing the possiblility of us having a baby out of wed lock.

when i eventually get a BFP, i will probably wait like a month or two before i tell anyone.......see if they notice! hehehe!.......except you girls.....i would tell you right away! :-)

i would probably NOT tell my mother untill i was a few months gone and starting to show.......because she has forbidden me to ever get pregnant (well.....tough luck on her!......its MY life, i'm nearly 22 and i want a baby!). she says its cos she doesn't want to ever be a grandma, and i'm FAR too young, but really i know that its cos she doesn't like my husbond!
