I am really starting to struggle with when we should tell Dh's family. I have an extremely small family, so most of them already know. But his family is huge and they are going to be completely over the moon for us. I have already had my first ultrasound and saw the heartbeat, so I feel confident. I really am so excited for them to know. I know that it is really killing DH not to be able to share this with his family..
We have only told my mom, dad, and sister so far. They live here in town with us and would be my support system if something were to happen. We plan to tell the rest of our family and friends at the end of the first trimester. It is hard to keep a secret, especially when you know how exited everyone will be! I think you will know when the timing feels right for you. Best of luck to you!!
We aren't telling for a while yet. my family for the most part knows, I have a really small family. So it is basically my mom and grandparents know, my dad also "knows" but he is in and out of consciousness on life support.
My u/s is next week, and I am hoping by mid-feb or so we can get up to the IL's and have a little get together (everyone lives 2-5 hours away) and we will announce it them.

I am not telling until i start to show . I've had three miscarriages and i can't feel confident this early any more. if you are really itching to tell, go ahead! in the unlikely event something does go wrong, you will want to have people to share it with, in my experience. but i am sure everything will go smoothly for you
DH is also itching to tell his family, but I'm holding off. Plus we haven't told anyone in my family, since my mom has major health issues and I don't want to have her disappointed if something goes wrong.

With my two other children we told everyone immediately. We had a miscarriage scare with DS after we had already told everyone and it was just stress for our family that I felt bad about. This time I may not tell any family until after we see a heartbeat. I think I would feel pretty confident announcing it if I had already had my first u/s and everything looked good
