We have our NT scan this Wednesday...and if all goes well, we plan on "announcing" our pregnancy to the world (a la Facebook and my blog). I don't know why, but I'm so nervous to make the announcement! I'm sure everyone will be happy...but maybe it's the fear of the unknown (response) that's getting to me?

We've already given the news to parents and siblings...but haven't made it 100% official. I guess I kind of like being in my little "bubble?"

Did anyone else feel this way the first time they made this kind of announcement or am I just crazy??

I never announced this or my last pregnancy to the world the only people that know are my family and close friends, however I did feel very nervous about telling them both times....

I remember there were a couple pregnancies, I announced as soon as I got a BFP, then there have been a couple where I have been more reserved, this one especially. Part of me is making sure I am a bit more emotionally sound to deal with all the comments. Part of me would like to go until I can't hide it anymore. My 12 week scan is on Friday and we are debating whether or not to tell after it. I'm not sure. Sorry, I wasn't much help, but it's obvious I'm going through a similar thing and this is my 7th pregnancy.

I'm always nervous to announce, too. It's kind of fun having a secret. Everyone was happy for us though and it made it much more real when we told our family and friends.

We told my best friend and DH's boss (in case he needed to leave quickly) and that was it until this past weekend. We told my mother and sisters on Saturday. I had planned not to tell them until after my 20 week scan because I didn't want to hear the comments. This is my 4th, and my family is not supportive.

I'm nervous to announce to the world, because it's so close to mine and DH's wedding, we're still pretty young, and DH is still in school. Just nervous about peoples reactions.
