Re: Who have you told?

I have just told DH and two of my friends. My parents will be here for Christmas and my IL's will be here for DD's birthday on 1/2, so we are probably going to tell them all in person.

Me too! If it weren't for them I really think we would just announce at Christmas. It makes me sad, I know they are not going to be kind. They will accuse us of trying to out do SIL who is expecting her first.

Re: Who have you told?

On my first pregnancy test kit (I was 2 weeks pregnant), the first person I told about was my mom because I feel scared back then. Then I eventually told DH that we're expecting. Three months later, my mom and DH proudly announced to our personal friends through FB about my pregnancy.

Re: Who have you told?

Besides my husband, I have told my online friends, who include 2 real life friends whom I don't see very often. DH hasn't told anybody, even though his best friend was asking him yesterday if he thought we would have another child.

I hope to tell our families on Christmas and probably everybody else in early January.

Re: Who have you told?

I think we're going to tell family in person at Christmas.

Also, I did tell my mom last week b/c she was leaving the country and won't be back until the new year and I knew she would be really upset if she was the last family member to know.

Re: Who have you told?

I've told my best friend, my boss and my coworkers because I can't lift anything heavy at work anymore. I don't think dh has said anything to anyone yet. We're pretty much waiting until the 12 week mark, just in case, to tell our dd's and the rest of our families.

Re: Who have you told?

DHs best friend knows because he guessed it when I wasn't drinking alcohol at Thanksgiving. The best friend then told some acquaintances that same day even though we told him to keep this private. Eeek! That was not planned and definitely awkward.

I've told one colleague who is also pregnant and we've been swapping stories and advice. We only communicate through FB and she doesn't have any connections with my other friends and family members, so no risk of leaking there.

Other than that only my doctors and nurses know due to all my recent visits for multiple UTIs. Oh... and online ladies like yourself. So it feels like a lot of people know already, but no one really close to me in real life.
