Re: When did you tell?

First time we told right away at 4 weeks. That one ended in a loss during which MIL and SIL said some ridiculous things that really soured the experience and let us know they could not offer any support when we were hurting. MIL actually said to me, "That's okay since I wasn't ready to be a grandma anyway!"

The last three I told my mom right away but his family have been the last to know around 12 weeks. This time when we announced to them on Skype and MIL literally said,"oh...huh" and then didn't mention it again.

With our first three we announced right away, but the last pregnancy ended in miscarriage. So with our latest little peanut I was very shy about telling anyone. I told my husband, best friend, mom, and direct supervisor at 4 weeks. After an 8 week u/s and I hear the heartbeat. I told the other nurses at the doctors office were I work, since I ave a history of passing out in the first and second trimesters. The rest of the office and family will be told over thanksgiving holiday as I *** the 12 week mark.

Re: When did you tell?

I told my manager and a few close co-workers at 6 weeks in preparation for being sick. My close family was told after the first ultrasound at 9 weeks. DH just told FB on Friday at 13 weeks. If it was up to me I'd let people figure it out for themselves, haha, but he's been chomping at the bit to tell.

With our first we told most people around 10 weeks, after we saw and heard a good strong heartbeat.

We told with our first at 4 weeks, 2nd at 10 weeks, and when we get prego again we hope to wait until 16 weeks (we would like to know the gender) but I don't know if I could hide it that long.
