When do you plan to tell friends and family the great news?!?

I told my mom and dad right away (very close with them) and we are telling my inlaws today - they all knew we were trying/going under treatment for infertility and ask for updates so... We'll need their support if something happens, too.

Apparently my mom has a big mouth so we're going to tell my brother and SIL once we see them, too. As DH said my mom is just really excited so we're not upset... but I'd rather the news stayed to just immediate family for a little longer. Oh well!

We aren't telling anyone....even my kids until at least 6 weeks this time. We've just been through this too many times, and I don't want to drag everyone through it again if something goes wrong.

With my last three pregnancies we told everyone right away. However as my third ended in a miscarriage we have decided that we will not tell anybody for a while, not sure when but probably closer to 8-12 weeks.

Well don't I feel like the odd one out
(though I understand - we were planning to wait until the first ultrasound at least... with the exception of my mom).

I'm terrible at keeping this secret - 2 people looked at me and guessed lol.

I have already told my mom and 1 of my friends. Dh is very unhappy about this unplanned pregnancy right now and does not want to tell anyone yet.
Unfortuently I am an x-ray tech so I had to tell my supervisor this morning. Then it snowballed when I needed someone to do an exam for me and had to tell them. Then I figured whatever, everyone will find out soon anyway, so I just told everyone at work. I didn't want to for fear of a mc. I haven't had one, but I'm always a nervous wreck that something could be wrong.

We are waiting to tell everyone for awhile. My SIL is preggo with their first baby and due in July. Since this is baby #3 for us, we've decided to wait awhile so we don't steal the limelight. It's really hard not to say anything though, I want to tell everyone now. I'm due January 1st. My other two girls were born in January also.... so it must just be our month.

I am going to see my mom today and I am so worried that I will let something slip. I might have to move up telling them to Mother's Day.

Wow, I don't know how you ladies can keep it a secret! Maybe it's because this is my first but I called my Mom about 30 minutes after finding out. I texted my brother after that and called my Dad that night to tell him. My parents have already called some aunts and uncles to let them know. We have also told a couple of friends.

That is one thing I worry about... something going wrong and having that disappointment and having to explain what happened but I was just too happy and excited to keep it under wraps. The only people I don't plan to tell for a while are my boss and co-workers. I will probably let them know at 12 weeks.

I let my family know the day I took the test! I have had a miscarriage before and thought about waiting, but my DH and I decided we wanted to have our families support during this anxiety ridden time. They are all happy and cautiously awaiting the drs appt.

My DH and I phoned our parents and my brother the morning we got the BFP. We are waiting until the first trimester is over to tell anyone else. My first pregnancy ended in MC and I figured we need their support during this stressful time and if god-forbid anything happens again. I can't wait for 12 weeks to get here!

I'm not sure how long we are going to wait, probably at least until after the first doctor's appt. I want to wait a while, because this is our 4th child, and if I hear one person say "Don't you two know what causes that?", I am going to choke someone. I told a couple of friends who live out of state and don't know my family so I don't have to worry about them blabbing, lol.

My mom knows because of photobucket!!! I called her and she asked if I had something to tell her. But other than that we will wait until the 1st trimester is over to tell everybody. We had a loss before Wyatt.

I haven't even told Dh yet!! He has been at work since 3am and is working late so Im going crazy! I put a big brother shirt on my littlest so dh will see it when he gets home tonight

My family all lives in Ca and I live in Louisiana, but my mom is going to be out this way next week for work so we're trying to plan to meet for lunch so I can give her her Mothers Day gift, which I'm thinking will be a calendar that you can order on-line made with your own pictures..so for January I was going to put a picture of Rylan in his big brother shirt & a picture of the hpt on the actual date. Then we will call & tell everyone else.
