Will you share right away, have you already OR will you wait for until you're in the "safe zone?"

We will tell our families around 7-9 weeks when we have the first ultrasound to show them & have seen everything looking okay in there, but not tell friends, etc until 12-13 weeks. It is so hard to wait though!!

I told DH and my mother at 4 weeks when we found out, and waited 12 weeks to make it "Facebook official". I'm so excited to start hearing all your announcements!

My hubby and best friend are the only ones who know atm.

We usually wait until after we see the heartbeat to tell family and close friends. And usually wait until the 2nd trimester to tell everyone else.

We told my parents right away. We're telling his parents this weekend. Our theory is that if anything happened, we would go to them for advice/support anyway so we are OK telling them so early.

My best friend is the only other person who knows (again same theory)

We're waiting until after the u/s to see the heartbeat to tell our other close friends, grandparents, etc

and will wait until after the first trimester to announce to everyone else/fb/etc!

I'll tell my best friend (because she knows I'm TTCing and asks me all the time if I'm pregnant (I think she wants to get rid of her maternity stuff). I'll probably hold off telling for a couple weeks, but I don't know if I'll be able to wait that long.

My DH, my parents, and my best friend know already. I'm REALLY bad at secrets and know I would tell them if I needed support if anything were to happen.

We will wait until ultrasound with heartbeat on Feb. 21 to tell grandparents and other family.

Then will probably wait until 10 weeks to tell everyone else.

Well of course dh knows! I just told my sister & mom this morning. I normally go to my parents every other wkend & I drink there. Thinking of going this wkend & figured i'd let them know before hand incase I go, & they don't have to wonder why I'm not drinking. Lol
Not telling the inlaws until til after I have my 1st appt. & then since I can't keep things to myself, i'll slowly start letting it out after the inlaws know. Although dh's best friend knows.

Thanks Joanne! I can't believe I'm back here already


For me I think we'll wait until we have a first ultrasound to make sure we have a heartbeat to tell our families. As for everyone else, I'll probably wait until I start showing... this is my 4th though so it probably won't take too long.
