HAs anybody told family yet? I am ready to tell mine but at the same time Im scared to! we will be at 6 weeks soon, but I also need to ahve somewhere for DS to go for my appt on Friday...... AS of right now a few at work know, but other than that family doesn't. Just wondering who has told/how?
i told my cousin and a girl at work because they both know i was trying and was having a hard time so i kinda felt like i needed to let those 2 know. i was going to wait but honestly whats the point cause if i have another miscarriage my family will need to know to take care of ds so i think im going to wait until next week or the week after. i bought ds a shirt that says Im the BIG brother and im going to have him wear it to my parents and in laws and see if they can guess
we have told family already. I waited until 12 weeks to tell anyone with my first two kids and just felt like doing it differently this time. We saw my family last weekend and just told them then.

My Ovulation Chart
We've told my parents, a friend each and my trainer at the gym lol - I told him in case I passed out he could tell the paramedics.
I think DH is trying to tell his parents right now, but his sister is in the room and we're waiting a little longer for siblings - which is funny since we told siblings at 7 weeks last time around. We were going to wait until 8 weeks for parents (except my mom who I told right away), but we ended up jumping the gun with my dad last week (which was good since he said he already suspected).
It's really unclear right now when we're going to tell siblings. My BIL just had one, and my SIL is due in Dec. So we're trying to get somewhere in between to tell.. maybe 10 weeks or so. And then other people I'm planning on just telling when I'm showing or if they ask me.
We haven't told family. 2 of my mom group friends know and many of my online friends. We are waiting for the Big Sister shirt to arrive to tell my mom. She will need to watch DD overnight when I have my test at 10 weeks, so she needs to know early. I don't want to tell anyone else until the test results come back...probably at 13 or 14 weeks. I'm not sure that's going to happen though.
We have told MIL, and my mom and dad/step parents. My uncle was at my dads and dad told him, which I am ok with. My sisters know (all three of them) and one of my three brothers and his wife, cause they asked.
I was only going to tell one of my little sisters, but she guilted me into telling my mom. Which kind of spiraled into telling everyone else.
