1. How soon after a BFP do you intend to tell preg.org friends, family, friends and the rest of the world?
We'll wait at least 12 weeks. I might even wait longer to go full on FB public. I was SO excited to tell everyone last time but as soon as the news was out I felt like my little secret wasn't my own any more. I'll probably keep it a secret until my belly starts giving me away.
2. Do you want a baby of a particular gender and explain why/why not?
I honestly don't care. I can see the fun in both. We purchased most infant things in gender neutral colors and I'll have no problem in dressing a little boy in pink. Smile

I've visited nearly every state in the continental US!

1. How soon after a BFP do you intend to tell preg.org friends, family, friends and the rest of the world?
Well, since we didn't get a BFP last month and missed the window to tell people at our wedding (would have been just shy of 12 weeks), I think we'll wait to tell people until they notice something is up. PG.org friends will know right away, I suppose, because I use these forums as my outlet. Spilling it all here helps me keep it quiet in the real world.

2. Do you want a baby of a particular gender and explain why/why not?
I would love to have a girl first, but I'd obviously be happy with either. I say girl because we don't disagree on girl names like we do on boy names, simple as that.

3. Tell us something interesting about yourself!
I knit, A LOT. Not lately, as we've been busy with our home reno, but I have 7 rubbermaid bins full of yarn waiting to be knit. Also, another interesting tidbit, FH forced me to date him. He was supposed to be a one night stand (shhhh!), and he tracked me down later and made me do a trial run with him. I was so tough on him, laid down the law, and he was game for anything. Obviously it's working, because that was almost 7 years ago, and we're getting married in 6 weeks!

Well, pg.org friends will know pretty quickly. Like others have said, it makes it easier to to keep it quiet in the real world when you have someone to talk to on here. Smile Close family and friends (ie parents, sis, and my best friend) we'll probably tell after the first ultrasound. The rest of the world will find out probably around 12 weeks.

2. Do you want a baby of a particular gender and explain why/why not?
In my ideal world the next would be a boy and then another girl for #3. I would really love one of each, but I'd be happy with happy, healthy, babies in the end.

3. Tell us something interesting about yourself!
Hahaha. So you know that game 2 truths and 1 lie. I've always had that one in the bag, so to say. For example, can you tell which is the lie? I've lived in Europe, I have 2 extra ribs, and I was dropped on my head as a baby. Hehehehehe I've never lived in Europe! Smile

pg.org friends will know right away. My BFF will probably know before my DH, just like last time. As for fam and friends, I would really like to hold out to tell them. Depends on what we'll have to do to get pregnant again. Last time we had to go through such extensive fertility treatments that everyone knew when I was supposed to find out. We managed to lie and tell them we hadn't gotten the HCG test results on friday and have to wait till monday, and then we surprised everyone over the weekend. If we get pregnant naturally this time then we'll wait as close to 12 weeks as we can.

2. Do you want a baby of a particular gender and explain why/why not?
I do not care if we have a boy or girl next. It would be nice to have a girl so we end up with one of each gender and it'll take the pressure off the gender of our next babies, but I already have tons of boy clothes, so either would be fab with us! I'd just be in heaven to skip the fertility treatments! Wink

3. Tell us something interesting about yourself!
I don't really know what is interesting about it. I guess its kinda interesting that I go to work and DH is a SAHD.... Although we both desperately wish it were the other way around!

1. How soon after a BFP do you intend to tell preg.org friends, family, friends and the rest of the world?
I think about this a lot, especially since my friends are at both ends of the spectrum: one announced at 3 weeks, one at 16+ weeks. I will want to shout if from the roof tops but as TiggersMommy said then it's all over and done. I think DH will want to wait 12 weeks.

2. Do you want a baby of a particular gender and explain why/why not?
I would like a boy but obviously whoever comes along will be loved Smile

I collect teddy bears.

I broke my jaw in a skiing accident in high school and my pinky finger playing touch football in college. I am kind of a klutz!

1. How soon after a BFP do you intend to tell preg.org friends, family, friends and the rest of the world? I will tell my friends and family right away. I don't believe in waiting to tell. I think when a woman miscarries she feels isolated enough as it is, it is nice to have support when you go through that sort of devastation. I will save a big public announcement (FB) for my 12 week scan.

2. Do you want a baby of a particular gender and explain why/why not? Not gonna lie, I want a boy. I would absolutely love another girl, but I would love for my girls to have a brother even more. Plus, my husband really really wants a son.

3. Tell us something interesting about yourself! I am an ex-pat. I was born and raised in KY., but have lived in Canada for the last five years.

i would probably tell p.org ladies right away. Last time we didn't tell family or friends for 3 months, not sure if we will do the same this time or not. Some people were already starting to notice before I told anyone last time lol
2. Do you want a baby of a particular gender and explain why/why not? I would like to have a girl, but would be completely happy with either one
3. Tell us something interesting about yourself! i have a knack for remembering useless facts. especially about the entertainment world
