Whether it's on Facebook or to your family or extended group of friends (or all of the above), when do you plan on letting everyone know?

I'm planning on waiting until after next Monday's NT scan at 12 weeks -- I want to see Little H one more time. But I'm starting to get anxious and want to tell everyone NOW!

I told everyone weeks ago. I can't keep it in even though I wanted to just not say anything to any of my family until baby was born lol. Just because.

Told 2 weeks ago with a video of us telling the boys. Its easier than asking family to keep quiet.

I think anyone we care about already knows. Still undecided as to whether I will announce on fb at all.

A few people know but I think we will tell everyone else if everything looks good after my next appointment/ultrasound on the 30th. I should be around 12.5 weeks then. Pretty sure I'm not going to announce anything on facebook but we'll see.

We will tell extended family and friends after our gender scan on Dec. 2nd. Once they all know, we will post on fb.

We told close family with those announcement cards I made about a week or two ago. And yesterday on Facebook. I live on Facebook, since my husband is in the military (and we move.. A lot) that is how we keep in touch with all our extended family and friends so it was important to me to make an announcement on Facebook.

Family and close friends know already, and we did family pictures that will be posted on facebook as our announcement. Other than that we are not making a huge deal in telling everyone

FB announcement will be after we find out the gender. Most our family still doesn't know, and I'm not sure when we will tell. It would be so fun to wait till we know the gender but I don't think we can wait another month.

We're planning on making some cute announcement pic to put on Facebook. We're just not sure what it's going to be yet. We've told immediate family so far, so now it's down to friends and extended family.

Looks like we're announcing on Halloween. Mailing out official announcements to important family folk a couple days before so they can get there on time. And then my halloween costume will sort of be my general announcement to the world (although it seems EVERYONE at work somehow knows).

Everyone close to us knew a few weeks ago, and last weekend (9 weeks) my husband posted our ultrasound pic on facebook.. We were supposed to get family pics a few weeks ago but the weather was bad, so we're finally getting them tomorrow & we'll do something in those, too!

We told everyone as soon as I tested positive, but we officially announced on Facebook after my 10 week ultrasound.

Halloween! We're telling our sons by taking them to my u/s scan. We're telling family by trick or treating at their house and I'll have a shirt with a little skeleton baby on it in the tummy area.

Facebook/friends will find out mid/end Novemeber.
