I'm half in, half out. LOL All of our family know, 2 of my good friends, and 3 other friends know due to being nearby when something was mentioned to someone else. However, it probably wont be much longer now, as DH told work already. LOL I plan on doing a photo announcement and putting it up on Facebook around Halloween.
We had discussed keeping it a secret this time but A. My husband lasted until he opened his car door at work (all of 20 minutes) and told everyone and B. I'm showing.
I lost a baby a few years back and I was glad people knew...a lot of people thought I was nuts telling before 12 weeks but then when I lost it people were understanding. And I got a lot of support from friends who I didn't even know had lost children. I would rather people know and acknowledge, so we blab ASAP =)
I don't think you're nuts! I think everyone has a different opinion, that's all. I have some friends that waited to share until they were 12+ weeks (one was even closer to 20) and I have some that shared around 5/6 weeks. I had wanted to wait a bit, but DH has wanted to share it more with everyone. I had posted above we were waiting, and then today he said he wanted to share it with his NYPD force because it's his last day and he wants them to know. I can understand that, but that pretty much means I have to announce to the world before people act all crazy and "I had to hear it from xxxxx, why didn't you tell me?" so I think I may do that today.
We have told my mother.. That's it.. I will be keeping hush for as long as possible.. Esp with my workplace, I just got a permanent full time job which is super hard to get and 'beat a few other people to the position so I want to wait a bit... If they find out earlier , so be it though...
We aren't sharing yet, although I kind of wish we could somewhat soon. I did tell my sister because I had called her before I got my BFP asking about symptoms and she had already known we'd be trying this fall. We also told my DP's brother, and his GF because they are expecting and they're our best friends. I told one lady at work, and other than that it's still a secret!! It has already been extremely hard to hide it, especially when I'm having my DP pull the car over on our 90 minute road trip yesterday with other family members in the car. I just said I Was getting car sick. Then I was drinking water and sprite all day when everyone else kept urging me to drink wine and alcohol. Hmm.. lol. I just said I was the DD if things got out of hand. lol.
I'm nervous to announce this one. Everyone thinks we were done after Harper was born. I'm not sure what the reactions will be! I have this great idea to frame an ultra sound picture and give it to my parents as a christmas gift... usually by the time we open presents everyone is all buzzed up on Tom & Jerry's, Egg Nogg, and Hot Toddy's, lol.
Not sure if I can keep my mouth shut for that long though, and I can't remember if I'll be showing by then either.
I've told a couple of people and he's told no one since his group of friends is a little more intertwined than mine. I want to wait til 12weeks to tell family and facebook if we can hold out (aka if i'm not showing).
I think we're going to tell family and our 'local friends' at the end of November (American Thanksgiving) and FB/our 'out of town' friends at Christmas.
We go for our first ultrasound on Oct 31, so assuming that goes well and we see the heartbeat, that's the earliest I'd want to start telling people (hubby already told his mom though and I will have to tell my boss to get the time off for appointments without taking sick days).
We have a vacation planned to go to Denver to watch the Broncos (my team) play KC (hubby's team) mid November - so I am hoping to come up with some sort of announcement photo while we're there to sneak into our pictures we'll share upon our return home.
We aren't sure when we will tell. At the moment only myself, my hubby and a dear friend know. We haven't even told family. Some of that is due to the fact that I've had four miscarriages each one between8-11weeks we decide ok lets tell everyone and then in a few days have lost the pregnancy. The last one was really hard because it was a missed miscarriage. Which means my body thought I was pregnant even though the baby had passed and stopped growing. Anyways it'll probably be after 12 weeks that everyone knows and probably in the next week or two that we'll tell family. Since I'll probably start popping here soon lol
Ugh we're are mostly in the closet. I told my mom, my brother, and my best friend (Youngest DS's father), and DF has told his coworkers. But he wants to hold off telling his family and the boys. I want to tell eeeeverybody! I want to stop people on the street!
Ry, happily engaged to Zach.
Mom to Bodhi and Brigham.
Excited for Elliott Tesla in June 2014!
Im only 4 weeks pregnant so I havnt told anyone in Ireland yet, I facebooked my sister and best friend as they are in England and i wont be able to see them for a few more months, they are very happy for us and my sister is a little over excited but Im hoping to be able to wait until 12 weeks to tell everyone else. I had hyperemesis last time so i couldnt keep it a secret for more than 6 weeks.
