Re: When do you tell everyone?

We are planning to announce at the first full family get together. I will be 8 weeks at the time. I figure any longer I will not be able to hide it. I am already looking round in the middle.

So far other then DH I told my friend and mom. Mainly for reasons like I need a babysitter and mom should wait to fly out.

Re: When do you tell everyone?

I told right away!

I have a SIL though who is 7 months and still hasn't told anyone even in the family. (My MIL "let it slip" so that's the only reason I know) MIL says she wants to wait untill the 3rd trimester to tell anyone. I understand waiting, but that seems really strange.

Re: When do you tell everyone?

Wow, 7 mths is a really long time. I couldn't imagine keeping such a wonderful thing to myself. We've decided that at 12 weeks we're pretty sure we're going to tell. If I'm not showing I may wait one more week, but it'll be awfully hard to wait. There are days that I want to shout it from the rooftops.

I tell people close to us early. If something goes wrong I'll want/need their support. I've had three m/c, one child so far and seem to be very newly pregnant again.
