Re: When do you...

Re: When do you...

I kind of wanted to wait this time, wasn't looking forward to negative attitudes toward our 4th child in 5 years, but my husband didn't want to wait. We ended up making it public the day I got my BFP, 16 days DPO.

Re: When do you...

I tell people I see pretty much daily right away, same with family. I figure if something happens they'll know anyway and I suck at keeping secrets. Plus this time around I just got back to my pre-pg weight two months ago and everyone is always commenting on how great I look. I was in maternity pants at 6 weeks with my son so I'd rather not have them thinking I'm getting fat again before they know there's a REASON my stomach is bloating/growing, lol.

Everyone has their reasons for doing what they do, these are just mine.

Re: When do you...

i just got my bfp today and so far i've told my dh and my best friend. oh, and blogged about it on my dog board, but they won't tell anyone
i will probably wait until we are out of the first trimester before telling family and friends far away. i will definitely tell my friend that i work out with at the gym (she's a trainer and can advise me on my workouts since i never did workout with my other pregnancies). i may also tell my good friend that's moving east next week...
i didn't wait with my 2nd pregnancy and i was sorry that i didn't wait to tell since i miscarried. i also has a 'bad' feeling about that pregnancy...you know, mommy senses and all.

Re: When do you...

DH has been telling everyone, and I can't bring myself to tell anyone. I guess maybe it is because I haven't been getting along very well with my family and I don't want to tell them because I am afraid they will ruin the happy feeling I have. Thank you for all the input it is good to know that we all tell when we are ready and that can be at anytime

DH took longer to tell his parents and I know it was because he was scared of how they'd respond. MIL is always depressed and negative and has drilled it into all 3 of her kids heads that she should have stopped at one. I wouldn't have wanted to tell her either.
