We just talked about telling my oldest. We agreed to wait till after my first prenatal appt., at the very least. We want to make we have a healthy pregnancy on our hands. No doubts, but better safe than sorry. As for the family? My dad will definitely know before SO's family. I'm dreading letting SO's family know, cause they are very judgmental, and wrongfully so! I've told two of my friends already, though! Thank God for great girlfriends!!

I have already told my parents, his parents, my brothers and my best friend. We will be telling our kids tomorrow night. They have been out of town on vacation with my parents so they will come home after a month to a big surprise.

I am no good at keeping secrets.
I will have my first prenatal appointment next week.

Any ideas on fun ways to tell the kids??

We've only told 2 people so far that knew what we've been going through with trying and the loss. I was going to try to wait and tell my parents until after my first appointment, but I'll probably tell them tonight. I didn't get to tell them the good news before the bad this spring and I hated that for some reason. So just in case, I'll tell them now. I'll tell my boss when she gets back from her vacation later next week. My job is so physical she should know asap. Then we'll wait until we see that tiny heartbeat for everyone else!

I'm really struggling with this right now! I'm planning on telling my parents tonight or tomorrow, which i'm excited about. We are going on vacation next week with my parents, brother, my cousin and her kids, (who I LOVE) and my aunt, and grandparents. I don't know how the heck I will be able to keep it a secret. The problem is, if we tell them all, I feel like i have to tell the rest of our extended family too.

We told with Carter when I was about 6.5 weeks along, but I don't think there is any way I can wait that long with this pregnancy. I'm just going to keep praying its a healthy pregnancy.

Since we had a loss back in March we are a little hesitant about telling people too soon. We have decided that we will tell only our parents now, then after our 1st appt. we will tell our siblings/close friends.

Howver, DH and I both have big mouths so we will see how long we can keep our mouths shut.

Sorry Lizzy! I understand your caution, versus you urge to wanna scream it out to everyone you see! It's so exciting, but so scary at first. I'm still praying for you and your lil bean! Things will be great this time around!! You're stuck with us hun!!
