Are you shouting from the rooftops that you are pregnant or making it your best kept secret?

Yeah, we did that with DD, but this time, we are waiting a couple of weeks to tell anyone. Not sure why really, just trying to be cautious I guess. We plan to tell our family at an upcoming birthday party.

We are waiting. I told one of my friends yesterday because we were going to TTC together. Other than her and maybe a few other close friends we are waiting until 12 weeks. Our entire family lives back on the east coast and we're making a trip back at the beginning of August for my sister's wedding. We'll make an announcement to family then. The timing is perfect because I really wanted to get to tell them in person!

We're keeping it quiet for now. Last time we were soooo tempted to tell everyone, and we were planning on announcing on Facebook after the 8 week appt, but after the loss we were really glad we hadn't made it a public deal yet. This time I think we'll just wait until 12 weeks... we'll see how hard it is to keep quiet.

I live in a dorm on campus, several girls on my floor, who I am very close with, know. They are sworn to secrecy though! Will be getting a visit from the folks soon, so I will have to tell them then!

Well I'm still a Lurker/hopeful but if I get pregnant this cycle then I will shout it from the rooftops!! We struggled with almost 10 yrs of infertility between our 1st son and our 2nd baby we have now so I will be telling the world

If/When we get pregnant again, I'm not telling anyone but my mom. Since I just had a m/c I don't want have to go "untell" everyone like we had to do this time.
