I think I will probably reveal after my first u/s at 10wks 1d. If everything looks good then, I think I will feel pretty comfortable telling people. Plus it will be really close to Thanksgiving and family will all be around, so I think it will be a good time to share the news!

I'm really anxious to tell everyone, and I think we decided to do so this weekend. We already told my best friend circle and family. I don't wanna hide it

I really want to tell everybody NOW but I am so nervous about everything after our loss in August. We will probably tell everybody after our first appt and u/s.

We told our kids, my mom, and my 3 closest friends. We might be telling my dad, In laws and my grands/extended fam at 7 weeks early Nov. extended friends and aquaintances, I want to make it to 12 weeks. Ppl are going to give me stupid reactions since this is our fourth. Ans the longer I can put that commentary off, the better.

I think we're going to tell our families next weekend. I'm still not sure exactly how far along I am. I not super clear on how that's calculated. I thought it was from conception, but now I hear it's from two weeks before that? IDK. If anyone can help me out, that'd be great, btw. My last period started on Sept 6th. But I o'ed on the 25th. Any guesses?

I voted 6 weeks, since if everything looks good at our appointment today, we'll announce this weekend. We already told parents/siblings/very close friends. I want to shout it to the world though, so hopefully we can this weekend.

We're kinda tempted to just not tell anybody and see if they notice.

I voted 14 weeks. I'm with Jennifer. The longer I can go without telling my family the happier I'll be! I've already told my sister and closest friends, it's our parents and my extended family I'm worried about

Oops, I meant to vote 10 weeks but accidentally hit 6. Stupid phone. My family and close friends already know, but we haven't told DH's family yet. I don't want to hide it like we did last time fearing their reaction...I think they were offended by that. So he'll tell his parents as soon as he gets the nerve. We won't announce it to the greater public, however, until we hear a heartbeat on Doppler. My first MW appointment is November 5th; I'll be 10 1/2 weeks which might be late enough to catch it.

I'm going to wait as long as possible, but it will be hard! I have my next appt/US November 8th(I'll be 10w1d), but my birthday is November 6th and halloween is before that. I know I'm going to have to come up with some good excuses as to why I'm not going out/drinking for either of those occasions. I honestly don't plan on really formally ever "announcing" it on facebook or anything, just because I'm a really private person and I live in a town (I'm moving soon) where people have nothing better to do than gossip. I figure the people close to me will know, and the rest who pay attention & care will catch on lol.
None of my family lives in the same state as me, so I'm still debating on when to tell them. If I go visit for thanksgiving/christmas(I'll be 13/17 weeks), probably then. But everyone is scattered all over, so I will still have to make some phone calls/skype to let some people know.

That's actually what we are doing, except even then, my dh says we should just deny it.
We told after 20wks with our last baby. Not expecting a great reception to the news here.

We've told our moms, kids, two of my best friends, and one lady from work. I don't want to officially announce it until as close to 12 weeks as i can make myself wait.

I voted 14wks. I have had 4 miscarriages so I would like to wait, but if I am as sick as I was last time there may not be any hiding it. I want to do a photo reveal also I think it is to cute!
