We've let the cat out of the bag a long time ago to family and close friends. As far as letting the world know via Facebook...I just don't know yet.

When are you planning to tell? Are you feeling any better yet?

We have a reveal photoshoot on Saturday. Im printing one of the pictures for my parents. I actually told the person I was dreading last night and it went so well! She is in a different place emotionally in her life so I am so happy it went well. I will announce on fb after we tell our family next week. I'm glad it went well and it has helped. I decided to go with the midwives because I think my lack of connection to them was because I was not in the right place emotionally to meet them. If need be I can always switch but I don't see that happening. One of them was very understand about my emotions and has been checking on me. To me that is a good sign. thank you for asking!

Oh, the cat is quite happy and comfortable playing deep in the bag, in the bottom, away from the light

I am anxious to tell people, and then get nervous... We have decided to wait until after Thanksgiving...but before Christmas. Which leaves a 3 week window to start rocking everybody's worlds!!! That being said, my belly is really giving it away!!!

We've told our kids and one couple that we are good friends with, and I've told the lady I do music with at church, but haven't told anybody else yet. We just can't decide when and how to share the news with our families. I should tell my boss pretty soon, too.

We've told both of our parents, and some other family members, and I've told a few close friends. But we haven't done the big FB reveal. I thought we would after my appt yesterday, but we didn't hear the heart beat like we had planned, so now I'm trying to decide if I want to wait another week and a half and tell after Thanksgiving!

Our immediate families know and a few friends. We're going to tell hubby's out-of-state family when we visit them for Thanksgiving. I have an appt this coming Monday, so I'll probably announce on facebook after Thanksgiving. Although I know hubby will want to tell one of his good friends in person instead of him finding out via facebook. So....after that I guess.

A few close friends, and my sister know but that's it. My sister hasn't even told her DH. We plan on telling family at Thanksgiving. I'll have an appointment the Tuesday after Thanksgiving where I will hopefully hear the heartbeat. Once that part is official, I will feel better about telling. We ordered Christmas cards that say "Merry Christmas from the Five of us!" as our pregnancy announcement. I'm not mailing them until I hear a heartbeat.

I am going to tell my boss Monday because I have to see a high risk doc and I have already had my appointment for this month which means extra time off. I hate that I have to do this consult cause I didnt have to do it last time but I guess that was 7 years ago times are different. I think I may apply for FMLA also.

Everyone else Fam and close friends know already.

I haven't told anyone! Only my husband. I am getting anxious about telling my family. I will tell them at Thanksgiving. I will tell DD the night before. I am SOOOOOOOOOO excited to tell her!!!

My work I won't tell until December, not sure when?

Then, I will announce on FB closer to Christmas.

We have told my mom's side of the family, our close friends, and my coworkers/bosses. We will be telling my day's side of the family when we go to Oklahoma for Thanksgiving. I'm leaving DF's family up to him...they are all spread out and not very close so it's not a huge deal that we haven't told them yet. After Thanksgiving, we will make the big FB announcement.

The cat's still in the bag here. The plan is to wait for about 3 more weeks before telling first our parents then everyone else.

Our close friends and family all know. We have our first appointment on Monday and I *should* be far enough along to hear the heartbeat on doppler, so if that goes well I'll announce on FB.

Pretty much all of our family knows and lots of our friends. A lot of people at my work knew we did IVF so most asked at some point and then when we found out it was twins I told those who knew and then it got spread around :/ I wasn't too thrilled about that happening but its ok. I'm over it now I've just decided that I will enjoy every moment and try not to stress over something happening.
