I usually told my family and best friends the day we found out. Other friends were told closer to the 6-8 week mark.

Told my best friend the day, everyone else close to the end of the first trimester. Next time we may tell our families earlier, but everyone else still 3 months later.

Pretty much right away with my 2nd and 3rd. My first we held off for a while because we weren't married at the time and I was only 19.

We call to tell family right away, and close friends and church family within a few weeks. But we wait until at least the end of the first trimester to announce on FB and tell everyone else. I like to have had my first midwife appt, and hear the HB and all that first, so I'm pretty sure I was between 16-18 weeks before announcing it with both boys.

I usually tell people right away...I always have ideas of holding it in until later to make it a fun announcement but never do....I usually can't wait...I dreaded it this time cause we got so much crap last time....but people did really good for the most part.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
