When are you making your "facebook official announcement"? My friend who just found out she's pregnant posted it on facebook already, so I'm just curious about everyone's thoughts on when they will. I don't plan to make it official until after I've hit the 2nd trimester...maybe not until week 20 just to be on the safe side. I was kind of joking and said "I'll just post when I have the baby and say SURPRISE!" LOL. I definitely couldn't keep it a secret that long.

When we're out of the first trimester we'll make our Facebook announcement. I do like the idea of just posting after the baby is born!

I have a friend who posted it at 37 weeks. It also happened to be April 1st, but she really was pregnant. She had the baby 2 weeks later. I thought that was crazy. She lives away from family and friends so people didn't see her and couldn't tell.

I think I will wait until 14 weeks or so. Definitely wont say anything until the first ultrasound and heartbeat.

I am going to start telling close family (aka dad, grandparents etc) around 10 weeks so hopefully that will hold me off from announcing on FB too early!!! It's hard because I want to shout it to the world, but the worse thing is when you have to un tell so definitely not FB ready. Definitely doing a cute Pinterst inspired announcement though!!!!

Wow!!! 37 weeks?! Geez! I'm kind of in the same boat as her though. Family and friends are in Arizona and I'm in Delaware (due to the hubby being in the air force). I could get away with it for a while.

I'm sure she told her family, but the facebook world was totally surprised. I myself couldn't keep a secret that long. I love sharing my pregnancy with others.

LOL I love the 37 week announcement!!!
I would love to tell the world early but in reality if my mom who is not on my fb finds out she will start harassing and threatening me again it happened with my first pregnancy and I was so stressed this time I'm gonna enjoy and announce very late if not announce by posting pic's when baby is born

Odds are after a good ultrasound or two. I need the support system if something goes wrong again and the added prayers for a smooth healthy pregnancy would be very welcome from my FB family. For me it seems things go wrong a lot. I am not worried about "un-telling" people anymore if something goes wrong

Maybe around 9wks..once we see that it looks like this one is staying around.

I did watch making room for multiples the other day and the couple had gotten pregnant with twins but lost them around 20wks so when they got pregnant again they got pregnant with twins and didn't tell ANYONE until they were at the hospital in labor!

We'll have to tell by about 14 weeks because we'll be seeing a large group of people at a convention. I can trust most to keep it off FB, but not all! I would hate if they told my family and close friends before I had the opportunity. I have lots of friends who post as soon as they get their BFP. OMG. I couldn't do that. Although, I am jealous that they're not at all worried! They shouldn't be! They celebrate from the beginning. If all goes well, everyone has helped celebrate from the beginning. If not, they have that support. I also have friends who just post pics of their newborns. Hahahahahaha Tempting...

I'm waiting till my 1st Dr. appointment on the 22nd. I'll call close family (those who I haven't told yet)and tell them then make the announcment on Facebook. Because I'm in the Air Force people who need to know at work know. I got a physiical limitations waiver and I wanted to tell the people that needed to know before they saw the waiver and figured it out for themselves, but they're mostly men and it was like telling my dad multiple times lol.
