Still a secret here. I was going to tell the grandparents around Christmas but we may wait longer. I would like to know everything is going ok with my pregnancy before we tell anyone and I don't see my OB until January.

I am with you on that one. Whenever I found out, I told my close friend and Aunt. They have always been the ones I tell first. Then I hold off until after I hear the heartbeat and first Ultrasound. I recently told my parents cause there were here on vacation. It is still a secret from everyone else including my husbands parents, his family and the rest of my family and all of our friends. I will tell them in the new year. After I have my ultrasound on Jan.3rd and I know that everything is o.k...

It's still a secret to most. We've told very close friends. We are announcing it at Christmas. My 5 year old DD will get "big sister" presents and I'm giving calendars to the grandparents. It's going to be the best Christmas surprise!!! I'm still waiting to tell work though.

I've seen the HB on US at 6 wks but only grandparents know. With my other pregnancies, we've always waiting 10-12 wks. This time it's harder because my DD are 5 & 8 I want to wait a while before telling them -or telling anyone that may leak it to them! DH wants to spill the news at Christmas, I'll be 10 wks.

We thought about waiting but with a nosey way WAY too observant 13 yr old we knew we couldn't hide it. I do think though we will end up keeping the sex of the baby a secret from everyone. But I doubt that as well since I have a big mouth with our family and A1 just has to know everything

We have told. We told after I saw the 1st U/S. I do like the idea of maybe not telling the gender though!

Going to tell everyone on FB after our u/s. My work knows, our families know, and our close friends know. We just want to wait until we know all is well with baby before announcing it to the world.

Still a secret and probably will be for a while. Our parents know and a couple select friends. My brother and SIL have been trying for years to have kids and this will be #3 for us. I do not want the holidays to revolve around me when I know it would make my SIL miserable. So we are waiting.

It's a secret to everyone outside of family and BFF. Tomorrow is my doc appointment and I will be 8 weeks exactly. If I can see or hear a heartbeat, I will announce to everyone. So fingers crossed!!!!!

It's a secret to everyone. We still aren't sure when we'll tell people.
