I will be announcing to my family (including my SUPER traditional grandmother-mind you I'm not married :/) that I am pregnant on Easter. My parents know but they have kept it a secret from the rest of my family.

Every year we have an egg decorating contest. Last year I won, I made a Lady Gaga egg it was hilarious. So this year I'm going to decorate and egg saying "I'm pregnant" and I'm going to sneak it in when no one is looking. Haha I'm so excited! Then on April Fools we will announce it to FB, to see if anyone thinks its a joke.

The only thing that scares me is I haven't heard the heartbeeat since my last appoitment (at 8 weeks) so I hope I don't go through all this and something goes wrong. But we all have these worries I guess...

Thanks for listening! Anyone else planning to announce on Easter or have they already??

Good luck telling your family!! I understand the worrying, with all the late losses our board is experiencing I have a hard time feeling secure yet too.

everyone pretty much knows with me--- had no other choice not to tell people, since I needed all the support from family and co-workers as I could get! Luckily everyone is thrilled for me

We are also announcing on Easter. I made two huge paper mache eggs for my parents and his, and put baby stuff and a copy of the ultrasound inside. I too am really nervous, because our last ultrasound was at six weeks, so I'm worried that I'm announcing for nothing. I have another ultrasound on April 4, so we will ask our families not to tell anybody until we can make sure everything is okay, and then we will officially announce to everybody else.

I was going to make it FB official after my appt. yesterday, but my babe measured a little small. I'm not really all that worried since my dr's weren't but just in case I'm now waiting until after the next scan which also coincides with the end of my 1st trimester.

Good luck with your family, I'm sure they will all be very excited for you guys!! Grandmothers love babies even more then they love weddings.

I have that fear too but I shared with my folks anyway! You'd want their support if something happened, so I think you're alright

KUP about how it goes! I bet grandma will be happy to have a great grandchild!

I've done that before. My parents are super religious and I got pregnant with DS before I was married too. I was terrified but the good news is, they couldn't love him more than they do!

Good luck! I hope everything goes perfect

The Easter Bunny is bringing a basket full of baby stuff for the baby and it will have a copy of my ultrasound pic from this past week in it along with big brother and big sister shirts in it for my kids. Everyone in my family knows about the baby except our kids and since we are ready to fb announce we figure we can tell the kids now too.
