Just for fun question! Are you going to let anyone know you are ttc,and when you get pregnant when do you plan to announce?

We don't plan to tell anyone we are ttc and don't plan to announce our pregnancy until sometime between 16 to 20 weeks when we find out what baby is. Since this will be baby number five and with the other kiddos we announced early on, we want it to be our little secret together for a while. What about you?

I don't think I'll tell anyone we are TTC. We waited till around 2 months to tell friends, told family right away, I told my boss at 12 weeks. And didn't announce the second one on facebook until 20 weeks and we found out the gender. Next time, I will just do whatever I feel like lol.

Thank you Vicki for my new siggy!

We are not going to announce that we are TTC.. our families can be mouthy and we don't need their input on our decisions.

Once we are expecting.. I'd like to wait until we are out of the first trimester, but we will probably tell close family earlier than that.

I'd like to wait until we find out the sex of the baby but it's hard to hide from everyone in this military community. I'm sure I'll be showing long before then and then someone will go blab their mouth on Facebook lol. This will be baby #4 and I'm not looking forward to the responses when we announce. I've convinced everyone that I'm getting my tubes tied. My mom just might loss her mind when she finds out. lol

We won't announce that we are TTCing...only my JM ladies know that hahaha.

We will go "fb public" at the end of the 1st trimester, but our families we will tell sooner. Last time, we found out Dec 5, and waited till Christmas to tell our families (about 7ish weeks).

We won't announce when we are TTC with a planned announcement. We will tell family members if they ask us though. With DD with told DH's brother and his wife right off, but we had to. They came to visit us for a weekend and would've been blaringly obvious when I didn't drink. We didn't tell anyone else until 12 weeks. Even then the day we told his dad I wound up in the ER gushing blood with a subchroinic hemorrage.

This time we probably won't tell anyone until we find out gender, unless I start really showing early.

We won't announce that we are TTC, although my sisters and SIL know it's a possibility. I won't announce the pregnancy until the second trimester.

We wont tell anyone we are TTC and likely wont announce pregnancy until 16-20 weeks too. I usually wait until about then to tell non family, family after 12 weeks. I was actually 23 weeks along before I announced last time.

With Frankie we told my family right away and then everyone else at 9 weeks after our 1st ultrasound. The next one, we will do a little differently, we won't tell any family until we have our ultrasound and won't tell anyone else till we know the gender. Since there was so much excitement for the first baby, since he was the first, I feel like I need to do something to make the 2nd one exciting too. I want to think of a fun pregnancy reveal to do for our family.

We won't be telling anyone we are TTC except maybe my sisters - if they ask. With DD1 we told family almost as soon as I got the BFP - we were so excited. With DD2, we told our parents right away and our siblings a couple of weeks later. We actually had DD1 tell everyone she was going to be a big sister by putting her in a Big Sis shirt, not everyone got it so she had to point it out...lol! We did an FB announcement around the end of the 1st trimester with DD2, with DD1 it was around 10 weeks when we knew we were as much in the clear as you can be. I can't keep things a secret and I find it easier for people to know if something happens (I have been through a couple of somethings happening), so friends and family will know probably after the 1st u/s around 8 weeks. Parents will know probably as soon as I get the BFP. I'm not sure how I will reveal this time, but I love doing fun things! I can't keep it a secret long enough from DH to tell him in a fun way, I am going to try my hardest though! With DD2, I just left the test on the counter in the bathroom while he was in the shower, when he came out, he was brushing his teeth and he finally saw it (I jumped back in bed like I was still sleeping), he just kept saying there are 2 lines, did you know there are 2 lines...lol!

I probably won't tell anybody that we are TTC or pregnant, until 12 weeks. I've never waited before but I believe I would this time.

I would probably wait 'til the second trimester or so to announce it to everyone (Facebook), but we'd tell my parents & his family probably immediately...and make sure that they don't go telling people.
