I know everyone has a different answer but I just wanna know when you all plan to tell your extended family about your impending bundle of joy?? My first Dr appointment is in less than a week. Im almost 10 weeks, we haven't had an ultrasound and/or even attempted a doppler yet. What I wanna know is when can I tell all these people the good news??

It is so personal. We ended up telling people with this one sooner than expected because I am so huge already, these are babies #3 and 4 but I had a pregnancy when I was young too. But we are telling dh's brothers in two weeks because they live out of state and we want to tell them in person when we see them. So, some know some don't! I guess I would say after your first apt which is coming up would be great!

I told the whole world the day I got my BFP. Crazy, I know, but I couldn't contain it.

We made a facebook announcement after we had our 9 week ultrasound. Everybody knew we were trying so it wasn't gonna stay secret very long!

It depends on what you feel comfortable with. My family thought I was insane for waiting till my 13th week to announce my 1st pregnancy. Weeks later my sister got pregnant, announced it that day, and ... well, you know where I'm goin' with that. This time, my midwife scheduled an u/s at 8 wks to confirm a HB, & I'll likely announce it after that, since after 8 wks your chance drops drastically (and are almost non-existent after 13 wks of course).

I think it's so personal as to when to decide. For us, we were originally going to wait until June (around 14-15 weeks) when we go up to visit my parents but now, I don't think I can wait that long. We are having the nuchal screen in the next couple weeks and will probably announce right after that, so around 12 weeks or so. I'm so excited and can't wait to tell!

I've told close friends.. my boyfriend has told EVERYONEEE he knows/meets.

I just today told my sister... have not told my parents and I don't plan on telling my father until I'm around 6-7 months and I was thinking of telling my mother for mothers day.

I'll tell extended family and friends right before the baby shower...

I'm just really nervous of something going wrong and everyone thinking I was faking/knowing something went wrong

We are waiting until 12 wks, I think. If everything goes well at the appt next week, we might tell some people earlier. Only a handful of people know now.

We won't be shouting it out to Facebook before 12 weeks, just in case.

We have told a few very close friends and my parents and sister. We're telling In laws on Friday.

The rest I think we will wait till about 12 weeks. But at the rate I'm going I might be showing more noticeable before then. SO not sure.

Thank you for the amazing siggy *Kiliki*

We told our parents and siblings right away when we found out. We're actually planning on telling our grandparents this weekend and then making it Facebook official on Mother's Day and telling work on Monday.

I'm getting a bit bored of waiting and have been telling random people (but telling them it's a secret). Due to having three miscarriages in the past I plan on waiting until the 2nd trimester for actually announce to the world - if I can manage that!! lol. My close friends all know (the ones I would want there for me if I were to miscarry). I want to tell everyone! lol

Thank you Kiliki... for my amazing siggie!
