When are your plans to tell others?

with my first, I told anyone that would listen from week one.. with #2 I waited a bit as I found out right after staring a new job and #3 I waited until I was in 2nd trimester but it was easy as I was pregnant in winter when showing.. and now with #4.. I am pregnant in summer and I KNOW it's just bloat right now, but I'm popping a bit of a belly already and can't hide it and in a few short weeks.. will def not be able to hide at all..

Re: When are your plans to tell others?

Lol I'm the same way. I didn't but now do have a pooch... It's frustrating. I just look chubby.
I have told a few people that I am. We will wait a little closer to 12 weeks. I'm sick and I always take that as a good sign but I'd still like to be closer to the "safe" weeks....especially since I've told people and then miscarried and that's really REALLY hard.

Re: When are your plans to tell others?

With my first two pregnancies I told everyone right off the bat, but for some reason I'm paranoid this time around. I'm 10w4d, and I figure we will make a low key announcement on facebook around 12 weeks... I've seen a doc and gotten a good ultrasound and visible heartbeat, but for some reason I can't shake my nerves...

We told our parents at 14ish weeks with our daughter. Announced at work at 26 weeks. Announced on Facebook the day before she was born (on her due date lol). Just shy of 20 weeks now and still haven't even told our parents...

We told our whole family around 9 weeks but haven't announced on facebook or anything. I don't know when we want to!

We haven't told many at all yet. We had an incident where my sister found out and took it upon herself to blab to her co workers. #shakes fist#

I'd like to wait until at least 12 weeks. Or until baby is already earthside. Haha.

Re: When are your plans to tell others?

I looked at myself in the mirror tonight and I did a serious double take. What is my body up to!?
