We're keeping this a secret for a while so the only once who know are DH, my best friend and her husband and SIL.

I'm almost 8 weeks along and I've only told my best friend and my aunt (who both live far away). Just yesterday I told my co-worker/friend who is also pregnant and I knew she would be one of the few to just be purely happy for us without judgement and questions. I'm sad to say I am not looking forward to telling my husband's family. I am actually dreading it, lol. I'm pretty sure the rest of the world will be happy for us, but unfortunately we'll have to tell family first!

We told immediate family members; parents and siblings. And then just a handful of friends. We are kinda just waiting to tell people when we see them face to face rather than rushing it and telling via facebook.

I've told my BF, siblings and mom. He's told two of our friends. We're waiting to tell everyone else.

Told all my coworkers and family...and them the MIL posted on FB so I guess everyone knows! Everyone is just so excited to be grandparents! We figured that if something did go wrong everyone would figure it out anyways since his family is pretty big and close knit.
Excuse me if my typing is bad There's probably a baby in my arms.

DH, my mom, my sister and two girl friends who gave me doctor recs yesterday.
I'd like to wait 3 more weeks until my first apt and U/S to tell the masses. We'll see if DH and I can be good secret keepers.

We're 6 weeks today and haven't told anybody yet. We really prefer waiting till 10 weeks-ish before sharing with family.
If I have do a loss before that I prefer to keep it private anyhow.

That said, I'm really anxious to tell somebody, though! The suspense is so difficult!

We have told more people than we probably should have! Lol. I told my boss and one close friend, DH told 2 close friends, his boss and a coworker, and we told his mom and her husband lastnight. Were just so excited! So far everyone has been very happy for us. We will be telling the rest of our families after my doctors appointment this week, and well make it Facebook official at around 12 weeks.

We were going to have a baby, but we had an angel instead

Two very close friends so far, and my DH has told his old boss (well, he didn't try to, but the man took one look at him and just put his finger out and said "She's pregnant, isn't she?" - weird huh?!). He is itching to tell his folks.

We've shared the news with our families only. My mom has told all her friends though.... Will wait until my 1st ultrasound to share the news on fb though.

We've told everyone. We told family on the phone (we don't live close enough to do it in person and won't be seeing them anytime soon). I had told a few friends and then DH said he was going to have to tell some people at work to get the morning off for my ultrasound next week so we decided to go ahead and spill it on FB, etc.

I was concerned how some people would take it but so far we've only gotten positive reactions, which is a huge relief (or if they're negative about it it's been behind our backs and hasn't come back around to us!).

We've told 4 people. A couple friend we have, one of my coworkers who was need to know b/c we went on a road trip together, and DH's best friend guessed.

Originally we were going to wait until Easter to tell family and then tell everyone after that. We changed our mind and decided to make a double road trip weekend next Friday after my first appt and u/s. I will be relieved to tell our family b/c I'm so paranoid that somehow they will find out from someone else and be heartbroken that they didn't hear it from me.

Work and other friends will find out on a need to know basis and then we'll go public after the second appt. I'll probably put something very vague on Facebook on April Fool's. I'm thinking a picture of a bun in the oven.
