When will you tell??

So when and how do you think you will share the big news??

We are going to tell our families this weekend. I plan on signing the Father's Day cards from, Garrett, Marcia, Ethan, Lola and "the bun in the oven" Due 2/15/11. We have 3 separate Father's Day celebrations this weekend. One Saturday with my Dad and his family, and 2 on Sunday one with my in-laws and one with my mom, step-dad and my moms parents.
I will probably wait a little longer to tell the facebook world but I am so bad at keeping secrets and so is my family so I may just post it on there this weekend too.

Awww, that's cute!!

So far I have told my mother-in-law because she has been wanting this for us for soooo long. I also told my 3 best friends.

Me and my hubby decided that since we have been trying for 2 years (and I blab about our infertility on Twitter) that we will probably tell after the first U/S. Having this secret is KILLING ME. I don't know how people wait until after the 1st trimester.

Oh I forgot to mention that I have told many people already! I have told some close friends, my chiropractor, and my hubby keeps telling his friends. None of these people would ever let it out until I say it is ok so I am not worried my fam will find out before this weekend.

I agree Jenna I don't know how anyone waits until the second tri to tell!! I could never make it that long! The longest we made it was 8 weeks and that was with our first. Last time we told right around 6 weeks. It will be just about that when we tell this time too. I know people wait because of the risk of miscarriage but if I were to have a m/c I would want people to know so they wouldn't all wonder why I was so down. I would like the support.

Everyone but hubbys family is in the know! Last time they didnt find out until I was 5 months along! Idk how because I started showing at 3 months lol...must have thought I was getting fat. Lol

We [and by we I mean ME] made Kay a onesie that says "Im the BIG sister" Had her wear it around the last 2 weekends so 'she' could tell people (:

I told hubby with a temporary tattoo [See my Feb space] (:

I told my BFF the moment I got my BFP lol I couldnt wait. Then for FB I have a mommy blog and posted that plus my ticker link for people to see (:

Well we weren't going to blab - but there was a physical injury incident at work last week, so now my boss knows... - so because I can't keep a secret a few of my other co-workers know too!

... we are going to tell everyone else at dd 1st birthday party in July, we got her a "big sister" shirt and we are going to have my mom help her open it!!

after that we are announcing it to the world... I plan on a face book status that says : "___weeks down and _____ weeks to go" we will see who picks up on it!!

My mom and my sister already know, they actually knew before DH because I couldn't get ahold of him after I got my BFP. We plan on telling my dad and DH's parents on Father's Day. We got a onesie for each of the grandpa's. My dad's says " My Papa can fix anything" and my father-in-laws says "Deda-in-waiting loading, please wait". This will be the first grandchild on both sides so they're going to be really excited.

We'll tell co-workers, family and friends in the 2nd trimester.

Oh the whole world knows. lol We've lost before and when no one knows and you're too upset to just go on with life, it's just really isolating. I would rather tell early so I have prayers and support surrounding me. That's just me, though. Wink

We have our first appointment in 2 weeks so sometime after that to get a more accurate due date and even more confirmation. Also, we'll probably end up waiting a bit longer because then that weekend is my sister's wedding and I don't want to steal her thunder and all that- so maybe a week or two after?!?! DH and I each told one of our closest friends so we at least had another person to share it with!
