Re: When did you tell?

First baby: told parents right after the positive test. My sister was fasting and praying for us and I didn't want her to have to continue when I was already pregnant. A friend found out at about 7 weeks because we had an ER visit that coincided with a dinner we were having with her and it seemed easier to tell the truth than make up an elaborate lie. Work and everyone else: 13 weeks. Except DH told his work earlier, cause he's a horrible secret keeper.

Second Baby: told my mom at 9 weeks (maybe it was 8?) because she flew up to go camping with us and it would have been difficult to hide my first trimester uncomfortableness. Then the other parents the next week. And my friends after my 11 week ultrasound. Now, I don't really announce it, but sometimes it weaves into conversations.
SAHM to Magnolia May (09/10), Luke Russett (04/13) and expecting 11/16. Wife and best friend to my airman.
