Is anybody waiting a while to make an announcement? I know we are, just because I JUST had a baby 6 months ago, and I know everyone will think we're "crazy" and my family has a tendancy to come out with some pretty blunt, nasty comments, and I'd just rather not deal with it right now. Im not really sure when we'll tell people. Anyone else holding off?

My parents, my MIL, and both of our sisters know already. We haven't decided when we will tell everyone else yet. My ultrasound is tomorrow and if everything looks good we might go ahead and make the offical announcement tomorrow afternoon, but I am not sure just yet.

We are holding off a bit. We've told our parents and about 10 of our closest friends. I am hesistant to tell our 5 year old before we're a little further along. Hopefully around 8 weeks after we've seen the heartbeat.

Well I was holding off... probably will tell in the next few weeks now bc of fear that its going to get around and I don't want people to hear it from some one else. I think the official announcement once I tell everyone in person will go on facebook. Nothing to fancy

I'm with you. With my kids and my step kids this will make #6 for us and our families and pretty much everyone we know look at you crazy if you have more than 3 kids. I also had a m/c late last year... SO, once we see a little heartbeat I'll start thinking about how to tell the fam.

It's just hard isn't it... we all want our families and friends to be as excited as we are. Unfortunately, it's not always the case

NO matter though, everyone is always thrilled by the time the baby gets here!

The only one who knows about our pregnancy is my boss. She did mention it to the higher ups because there was a shingles outbreak at the other preschool and they wanted to send me over there to help out - oh, hell no! I've never had the pox or been vaccinated against it so the nurse at my OB's office said no way.

The plan right now is to tell everyone once we hit the second trimester. Only a little over 4 weeks to go!

WE haven't told anyone yet, and I'm hoping to wait a couple more weeks before we do. No that I've ever had a mc, but I would hate to tell people and then have one, and then have to explain what happened. I'm assuming we'll start telling people around 10-12wks roughly. Keeping this a secret has been killing me though!

On the 3rd of March we are going on a overnight trip with my sis and her family, my brother and our parents so we are going to annouce the news to them there. Tehn We have our 1st appointment the 5th so I'm hoping DH can wait til we get done there to tell his family then I'll probably annouce it on FB at 8 wks if everything looked good at my U/S.

I don't want to tell anyone until it becomes difficult to hide it.

Both of our parents and my siblings know and thats it. Oh we told our boys too. We're going to hold off telling everyone else for as long as possible. Last pregnancy we made it til about 22 weeks before the cat was out of the bag. This time won't be as long with my side because my Aunt will be having a baby shower in April and its totally obvious I'm pregnant just by looking at me. DH's family can know after baby is born for all I care.

Ha ha! I too am a blabber mouth. I want to keep it a secret but every time I turn around I'm telling someone! I actually started telling strangers to keep the urge away from telling the peoplevi know. Lol!

I am only 5 weeks and had a loss before so it's a problem, but I can't stop!

We still haven't told our families yet. I think I am waiting on more results from the next u/s. I have told a couple of close friends who don't run in the same circle, so I don't think it will get around to anyone, FX. I don't know why I am so hesitant to tell the family. I know/think they will be excited, but I really don't know what the reaction will be.

I am waiting. I told my parents, since they are my support system. But we have had many losses, and I just don't want to go thru telling everyone we lost another one. I told my daughter I was pregnant last year but then lost it, and felt horrible having to tell her the baby went to heaven.. so she will find out later after the risk is over. I don't want to break her heart again.

We're holding off until we go home in March. We just had Ryan 10 months ago and I have a history of miscarriages, so we are going to wait as long as we can. I have my next appt 2 days before we go home and will hopefully have an US at that time too. Last time we waited until 12 weeks to tell anyone and that was the hardest thing. This time, we are going home quite a bit in the next month for Ryan's Baptism and his 1st bday party, so we won't be able to wait until 12 weeks.

I am holding off on telling anyone (except for DH obviously) until we see the heart beat. With two previous m/cs I hate having to turn around and say we lost another baby. But hopefully this is our sticky!!!
