How long are you going to wait until you tell people outside of immediate family and friends? Are you waiting to hear the heartbeat on when you pass the 12 week mark?

DH and I have already told our close friends. It's my family we're waiting to tell. I have never been able to wait till 12 weeks to tell anyone, but we might this time!

I would prefer to wait until 2nd trimester to tell people. The father already told someone within an hour of knowing himself though I told him not to and he said it's taking all of his self-control to not tell everyone he sees lol. He said he's telling his mom which even though I don't want anyone knowing (not even my family knows - only my two best friends) I understand and I know she'll be supportive. My next appointment is at 10 weeks, so after that I'll probably give him the green light to tell his extended family and friends. Telling my family and actually posting it on facebook or something will wait until Thanksgiving or Christmas, depending on when I can afford to fly out to see any of my family (no one lives in state).

We told our immediate family and close friends the day we found out. We told the extended family and friends yesterday after we saw the heartbeat on Friday. Facebook gets to know after our next u/s at 10 weeks.

I'd rather tell complete strangers, who won't be telling my family, than tell anyone I know. We are going to hold out for as long as possible.

My best friend is the only one who knows or will know until we hit 13 weeks. With my history of early losses, we would feel better waiting.

I want to tell people so bad. We will probably wait a while though just because once we tell family, my four year old will know and announce it at school, which could get out at my work and I wanted to wait until the first trimester or seeing the heartbeat at least until telling my work.

Before, we told my family right away but with a little one who is going to be soooo excited we will probably wait a while to tell.

I got her a shirt to wear that says on the front "shhhh...I've got a secret" then on the back it says "I'm going to be a big sister" with her name.

We havent really told anyone. Outside of JM friends, 1 friend IRL, and my husband no one knows. It will likely not go over well so I am dreading it.

Family and close friends already know (I'm bad with keeping exciting things a secret). I'm prolly going to wait till I'm in second trimester to announce on Facebook.

We will probably tell family and close friends after our first appointment. Not sure when I'll announce on FB, with my last pregnancy I never made an FB announcement and several people only found out after I had popped DS out.
