Have you told anyone?? If so how did you tell if not how are you gonna tell everyone?

I plan on waiting until my first appt to tell anyone. After that I am gonna make shirts. DD will have a #1 DS will have #2 then I will make a onsie for the baby with #3. Then I am gonna take a picture and put in on a card and give it to everyone These next couple weeks need to fly bye cause its hard not to tell

I told my BFFs when I got the positive test. We'll tell the grandparents at 9 or 10 weeks by coming over with a "big sister" shirt on.

I'll tell facebook at 13 weeks or later with one of these style pics - either the shoes or the math one.

I'm going to wait until after my first appointment. We jumped the gun last time, and well, we had to backtrack. I'm being so cautious and nervous this time.

So far only hubby and I know. We don't plan on telling anyone until after the first trimester. Hopefully, no one will ask me the direct question.

I've told my circle of best friends, that's it. I'm not sure when I'll tell everyone else? I probably won't wait too long.

It's killing me not to tell! I have to wait till DH gets home from work and that's on the 8th of October. It's gonna be really hard to hold it in!

At least that's not that far away, huh?

I'm not waiting for the typical 12 weeks, either, I can't wait!

I've told by BFF and will tell everyone at work (because I have to). Everyone else, we are going to try to wait quite awhile. Maybe until we find out the gender, if my poor abdominal muscles can hide it until then!! We announced earlier, 7 and 8 weeks, with my first two.

I am planning on doing an picture with only child/big sister thing with my dog Sassy. She has been our puppy for 11 years so it seems fitting! We will probably tell soon after we tell all of the family

I've told a couple of close friends and my sister. I'll tell my mom when I get a good beta (blood draw is on Monday) but I think we'll wait the 12 weeks to tell DH's family since it'll be right on Thanksgiving and that's a perfect thing to say we're thankful for at dinner. I'll tell the "rest of the world," meaning FB, after that. LOL

It's interesting to hear different ideas. I told a few people closest to me straight away, inc two poeple at work who would need to know in case things went wrong. We're going to tell his family after the 12th week, mine already know. I really want to tell poeple at work though, it's on my mind, I'm so preoccupied and would love to say why and then be able to talk about it freely!
