Who have you told?

And how have you told them?

I actually told my best friend by text first.
Then I asked DH how many lines he saw.
We were supposed to have our neighbors over for dinner and sparkling wine to celebrate the husband's promotion, so they know
We "gave" my MIL her Christmas present early since she was in town and she used the same card and pregnancy test to show FIL when she got home.
We texted a picture of the kids wearing big brother/big sister shirts to DH's mom and said SURPRISE!
My parents are visiting my brother's family and we haven't had a chance to tell them yet and I don't know how to tell them!

Everyone. After telling the ILs on Thanksgiving, DH decided to announce it that night to his FB friends... so yeah, everyone knows.

I have only told my two best friends and DH hadn't told anyone. We'll tell all of our families at Christmas and won't tell anyone else until after our 8-week ultrasound on January 2nd. This is similar to what we did w/DS.

Oh, and when we tell everyone at Christmas, we don't plan on actually telling. We bought DS a big brother t-shirt and plan on just letting him wear it...we'll see how long it takes everyone to notice ;-)

Re: Who have you told?

I told my mom, dad and nana and MIL and her husband.

And our entire household knows. I texted a pic of a test to my mom and she wanted to know what it was lol.

No shirts for us, that would cost a fortune, lol. I am out of cute ideas after this many-just a regular announcement in our house is like a major party!

Re: Who have you told?

We told our parents/siblings and I told my BFF. We're holding off on telling anyone else until we see a heart beat. Not telling DS has been the hardest!!

Re: Who have you told?

I told three of my good friends and my mom. That's it. After two losses we're waiting until 12 weeks if we can.

Re: Who have you told?

Just DH (had him look to verify my squinter positive) , my BFF (text), and my cousin who I am super close with who is also TTC. Called and told her.

Plan on telling my mom next, just telling her. she will inform my dad. Then I am making a greeting card of sorts to email to everyone that has a picture of a Christmas tree, all the ornaments are baby items, then there is garland across the bottom that says "coming August 2013" Then I need to come up with some saying about expecting number 4.
