How many people have you told? Is there anybody you really don't want to tell?

Other than here on JM one person - my sister. I'm trying to hold out a while before telling anyone else.

I told my parents yesterday! Other than that, we've told no one yet. I'll tell my sister this week, though.

I told my mom and sister the week we found out. I ended up telling my dad on Saturday only because he was leaving for a 7 week business trip. We are trying to wait until after the u/s on the 13th to tell everyone else, but it's getting really hard not too!!

My husband can't keep a secret......so he told his parents and his brother. I've told my mom and that is it. DH is dying to spill the beans at work so people will stop asking him when we are having children, but I told him he needs to wait until Christmas.

Other than JM, we haven't told anyone. We are waiting until we are in our 2nd trimester to tell everyone.

We haven't told anyone either, other than here of course. I would love to tell my bff but my hubby doesn't want me to. Since we lost the baby last time we're both very nervous about telling anyone. I think we'll tell around Thankgiving when we're at almost 12 weeks if everything still seems okay. That's a long time from now though, it will be hard to keep the secret!

I have told my husband, my immediate family (mom, sister, brother, dad, my sister's fiance(they will be married on Sat).. a lot of my sister's friends know, too, because I went to her bachelorette party and I couldn't even have one drink.

I'm fine with people knowing because if I miscarry it's nice to have the support... but I still haven't told my extended family or my friends.

My online friends largely know. Of my offline friends, 1 knows. And that is cuz I HAD to tell somebody. And of course dh knows. Otherwise nobody knows...I don't want their judgments, not ready.

I totally hear you on that. That's why I'm not saying anything yet. Not up to hearing people's 2 cents on it.

Thanks to my MIL (who isnt even that excited about us having a baby...screw her! ), who told her whole side of the family, they all know....so I went ahead and started telling my cousins and stuff. Not many non-family members know. I was waiting for the appointment next Thursday to actually start telling more people....thanks MIL!

I've told my brother and cousin. We're not going to tell the whole family until Thanksgiving or Christmas. We had a miscarriage in May of this year, and it was very tough to share that news. I can't wait to tell though. The next three months can't go by fast enough.

We weren't going to tell anyone till 12 weeks, but it's been slowly slipping out, lol... a couple of my friends IRL, my mom, my sister, both of our bosses (long story, lol) and DH told a friend of his.

I told DH first, the same evening I found out. The next day I called my Mom, my sister heard her on the phone and figured it all out, so she told my other sister and my cousins. My DH called his Mom and we asked her to wait, but then suddenly I start getting Congrat messages on Facebook from his nieces, turns out she sent a family email out yesterday with the news lol. So I'm hoping and praying that we have a successful and happy pregnancy
