How and when will you "reveal?"

We were planning the old "big sister" tee reveal at our big family thanksgiving, but I swear I am not going to be able to hide it that long! I already look way more pregnant than I did with DD, and we have family visiting throughout October. What are your plans?

Re: How and when will you "reveal?"

I already told everyone. I told my mom and super close family members right away (when I was about 5 weeks). With the others, we waited until after I got the ultrasound, and then we called them. Everyone else (all of the non-close/super important friends/family) got told via Facebook.

Re: How and when will you "reveal?"

I am wearing a skeleton shirt with a baby skeleton over the tummy area for Halloween and we will see how many people notice. Maybe I will take pics of me specifically and asking if anyone notices anything new that but I haven't decided yet. All of our family lives very far away from us so unfortunately I will go the facebook route after announcing to everyone close to us via phone.

Cute! I saw a maternity shirt that said "I'm dressed up as my mom" and thought about getting it, but it might be too obscure

I've totally been planning on doing this! In fact, I really want to get started on making it, but I'm waiting until my first appt and hoping for an u/s just to make sure this one is sticky!

Re: How and when will you "reveal?"

We're having a big Halloween/birthday party for my kids when I'll be about 12.5 weeks....but I'm nervous to reveal until after my 12wk visit. We had one loss where baby stopped growing at 8wks, we revealed at Christmas to extended family around 12wks and then found out that we had lost the baby on New Years at the 12wk appt. So I'm nervous to reveal before that visit, but the party is before!

We were going to wait until Thanksgiving, but my family is staying with us next weekend, and unless I claim to have the flu I'll never be able to hide it. If the ultrasound goes well, I'm taking DD up to change into pjs, and she'll come down with her "big sister in training" shirt and ultrasound pictures.

No clue...

Probably not until after my 1st appt if I hear the heartbeat. I'm planning on keeping it a secret as long as possible. Depending on how much I'm showing I may or may not tell everyone before DD's birthday party on the 28th. I'm REALLY hoping it's cold so I can wear a fleece haha

Re: How and when will you "reveal?"

When I was pregnant with my son, I was an "oven" for Halloween with a picture of a bun on the oven window (bun in the oven). So I'm thinking I can make a facebook announcement using that pic and say something like 'technically i should be wearing this costume for this Halloween too'. With my parents I'll probably just tell them via phone after my 7 week ultrasound
