First baby: I told my sister first, rift after telling my husband... She was the only one who knew that we were trying. I wanted to give her lots of time to process it, as she had lost her son a year earlier. She told my mom, who told my dad. At 9 weeks or so we told my SIL, who told my MIL, who told EVERYBODY - including my step son. He had suffered the loss of 3 grandparents, 2 pets and his best friend, so we wanted to protect him from also suffering a miscarriage with us.
Needless to say, this time around nobody is being told until we want everyone to know - which we've decided will be through my Halloween costume.. And I'll be about 15 weeks.
