Who was the first person you told about your pregnancy? Your DH/SO? JustMommies? Someone else?

My message board girls (private board from my sons playgroup) knew I was in theory. I hadn't tested yet but I knew I was and I had told them that. When I actually tested DH was the first to get the official news then the girls were next. The next to find out will be my two girlfriends because I can not hide this bump I'm developing for much longer. My daughter takes swim class with one girl's daughter and I can't believe she didn't just call me out yesterday (its a mommy and me, I'm totally in a suit). I KNOW she knows but is just waiting for me to share. I almost told them today because it really is getting obvious. I mean they knew we were TTC... Family will get the news after Mondays US. We all will be at a wedding next Saturday so who hasn't heard it yet will then. Once family knows it is all over - everyone will know ; )

My DH knew first. Took a few days before I told anyone else.

I told DH first, before I left for work that morning. I told JM ladies next (TTC and my Jan 10 playroom).

Dh was first. My paralegal was second. I consider her a friend and she is responsible for taking care of me if anything happens at the office.

My BFF...... because hubby was at work, and I couldn't get ahold of him. But he knew as soon as he got home from work.

My midwife's office. :-) Then the Parents boards, and then I went looking for new boards and found these. Then my PCP since my MIL had shingles and was planning a visit. My hubby was the last to know (of those that know), and that was at a little over 8 weeks.

Really, it's just my hubby, the boards, and medical professionals. Not sure when we'll be ready to share. I think we're just going to wait for our girls to figure it out.

I told one of my friends first because my husband was asleep. I may have even told the JM TTC board before my husband woke up. Once he was up I told him.

DH. If I had any inkling in advance, I would have planned something fun to tell him. But I wasn't expecting it at all, so when I got a positive test, I was so in shock. I just walked right over to him (he was sitting up in bed) and put the test in his face. HAha... And then we told our son and my parents the same day.

DH was the first to know. My parents, his dad, my aunt, and sister know. However we are telling most friends and family this weekend 1)because we heard the heartbeat Wed. and 2) I am really starting to show and don't think I can hide the bum much longer!

JM TTC board was first, then DH a few days later, then my '09 playroom on FB, then 2 close friends that called me on it in person, then a coworker who is also PG, then our parents, then another 2 coworkers, then my brother.

SIL still needs to find out and my best friends from high school. All of work will find out after I hear the heartbeat (hopefully!) on Oct 1, then the grandparents and great aunt will hear mid Oct, then the world (aka FB) around Halloween.

It's a whole communication plan, really!

DH was the first to know. He had no idea I was taking a test and I really only took it to "rule it out" because I was waiting for my period to start so we could do IVF. He said "no you're not" So i told him to go look at the test himself. He came back in and said "nope, you're definitely pregnant" lol

DH was the first to know and then I told my MIL and my mother and sister. Those are the only people that knew for a while.
