ME! I'm so jelly of everyone, you guys are all like a week or two ahead of me! LOL

DH and I couldn't hear the heartbeart at our last appt, so we are waiting until our next appt on Tues just to confirm everything is going well before we tell the world. ALTHOUGH my grandma told the entire family already totally spoiled it for me.

But that's ok, she was excited.

Me! I probably won't be announcing until Christmas. We are waiting until we know genders cause I think it will be more fun.

Great idea! I wish I could wait that long (lol) as soon as I share with someone their first question is, "what are you having?" and I am like, "...I wish I knew!"

We have told our families and best friends but not anyone else yet. My first exam is today and hopefully I get to hear the heartbeat so I can spill it already. I have a couple friends on FB who aren't due until June but have already told the world. And it has been hard to not be like, "I am too!" Hopefully after today's exam!

We are still in the closet. Only my mom, BFF, and daughter know. We are telling the laws on thanksgiving. We have our elective gender scan 2 days before, so they will find out im preggo and the gender all at once. Then I just need to tell my dad, and I will announce on FB.

We didn't tell until after we knew the gender with DD It wasn't too bad actually because then we only had to deal with unsolicited advice for half the pregnancy

We announced this past week. It is so nice to be out in the open. Ideally we wanted to wait until we knew the gender, but my sister is pregnant as well, due a week after me...so we wanted to announce together.

I am dying to announce. But we are waiting until next weeks NT scan and ultrasound .
Then I want to tell the kids. Then I will need to tell my job ... We have some changes to make next year that they expect me to lead and be a part of. This is ping to throw a wrench in their plans .
Then we will send out the announcements. I don't know if I'm doing a FB reveal. If I do post something it will be after all the important people find out via mailed announcements or phone calls. I know my MIL is dying to tell her family and i want to give her that honor. They have had a lot of bad news in there family recently.

For a majority of my family (extended relatives) they will find everything out on our Christmas card. With my parents and little sister, my DD week be giving them an early present. They will have to open them at the same time and one box will be Baby A and gender, one box Baby B and gender and one box will be the due date.

I'm glad I got out when I did, which was about a week and a half ago. I weighed myself this morning and still have not gained a single pound but I look about what I did at 20 weeks with the last one. There is no way to hide it, it's insane lol.

I have told my mom, sister, brother, and boss. SO has told his family and a few close friends. I am waiting to tell extended family and the facebook world until either Thanksgiving or Christmas. Maybe inbetween - I have my gender ultrasound on December 4th, so hopefully sometime after that.

I told my family almost right away and a few friends. I just announced on Facebook on Monday after my NT scan. For some reason yesterday one of my coworkers who knew blurted it out at work and now everyone knows, but I'm fine with that.

Very close family and friends know but we haven't made any kind of public announcement. My friends keep asking when I am going to because they are afraid they are going to slip up and say something. I might put something together this week if I have a little more energy.

I admire the strength of the ladies who can keep quiet until after the gender scan! I very seriously thought about never posting on fb (everyone who is close already knows) but I couldn't help myself after the NT scan .

I'm currently avoiding my parents like the plague because they will be able to tell I am pregnant and I really don't want to ruin the surprise.
