Are you? Are you waiting til 12 weeks?

I've told a couple co-workers that knew we were TTC (4 people) and my supervisor so I would be excused from lifting anything heavy. Anyone else is finding out after 12 weeks because the first time I was preggo, I blabbed it all over the place at 4 weeks and had a m/c at 9 weeks. I waited last time and we have a handsome little man! I wish I could tell my parents now, but I already know they're gonna think we're crazy because money is a little tight right now. I'm either waiting til 12 weeks or until our tax refund comes back and we can get some things together before I tell them. Not that they wouldn't be happy about it now, they would just ask 1000 questions and I don't need that stress right now!

thank you gypsystar for my wonderful siggy!

My sisters and parents knew right away bc I pretty much tell them everything. My DH was really sad not to be able to tell his parents and sister so we told them....but nobody else (and we told them not to tell anybody..hopefully they listen!). We aren't announcing to everybody until at least after 12 weeks.

We usually wait until sometime after the 1st trimester, just when we feel comfortable telling everyone. We lost a baby at 18 weeks so if we could wait until after 18 weeks, we would. It's just a very scary time for us up until that week It was traumatizing I guess

I have only told my youngest sister, SIL, Best friend and the ladies from April 11 FB group.

I will not be telling the in-laws. My MIL was here for Thanksgiving and she found ways to work into the convo how we shouldn't have any more kids. Or how I should have my tubes tied. And the kicker is how I would have PPD if I got pregnant again because I was taking Anti-depressants. So DH will have to deal with them.

My mother would be okay with it, she had 6 kids also. My father, sad but I don't really care about his opinions on my life. My oldest sister said my cousin was stupid for getting pregnant again. Because her kids are like 4 months and 15 months.

But with Jace I didn't tell until I was 6 months.

My Mom and sister know, but that's it so far.

A lot of our friends/family know we were planning an embryo transfer in January, so we will probably spill the beans if our first two u/s look okay (5 and 7 weeks).

I won't be telling anyone for a while, haven't even told DH yet. I'm going to wait until we go back home to tell him. I don't want to risk him accidently saying something. My mom will be furious about our having children, especially living so far away from us. I'll wait 5 or 6 months if possible to tell family and friends. I've had 5 miscarriages already, and I'm absolutely terrified that I'll have another one.

We've told pretty much everyone already. lol. After trying a year and a half (and pretty much everyone knows that anyway) we were so excited that it finally happened that we wanted to share it with everyone. If we happen to lose it again I will at least have the support of our family. But hopefully it will be a sticky bean!

Only DH and I know, aside from the JM ladies! lol. I've been weirdly nervous this whole pregnancy so far even though I have never even been pregnant before or had any losses. I am just worried about jinxing it, I suppose. Plus, my parents are currently across the country right now so I want to wait a few more weeks until they get back so I can tell them in person. It's really hard though because I tell my mom everything. We plan on announcing to close friends and family when we hear the heart beat around nine/ten weeks. I'll wait to announce on FB until 12 weeks.

Thanks to *Sharon* for my awesome siggy! My pregnancy blog

I won't be able to hold it in until 12wks, I wish I had that much will power but I don't lol. I want to wait until I go to the doctor and get a beta draw and also until I'm about 6wks but DH has a big mouth so I have a feeling it'll be hard to keep him quite. I plan on tellin my imediate family when we go on a weekend trip the 1st weekend in March since we'll all be together and hopefully DH can wait until around the same time to tell his family.

we're not announcing to anyone until after 1st tri...we've been down the loss path a couple of times now and it's better for me to wait.
