    I blurted it out to my family once my mom came home from vacation... We didnt tell hubbies family though because he wanted to wait till after the ultrasound. Now everyone knows

    Hey Beth! My DH & I agreed not to tell anyone until I was 3 months. Now... with that being said, I told my mom and older sister of course, 6 people at work and one of my closest friends. I just couldn't help myself! :rofl: Sharing the news is one of the most fun parts. Go for it!! :dance:

    Hi, Most people know now, just tell people when you feel most comfortable as its probably the biggest secret you'll ever have to keep, I havnt told everyone and will anounce it on facebook along with my scan picture next week!

    Hi

    We have only told my closest friend, and my bosses at work ( I do a lot of travelling ( 3-4 hours drives to different places ) and work long hours, so wanted to tell them so i could stop doing manic hours! it is sooooooooooo hard not to tell my sister or my mum! DH and I agreed we would wait till the 12 wk scan on 31st Oct ( also my birthday, so hope is a good b day present)

    The idea is, that if we told parents, they would be so excited ( first grandchild on my side) that they would probably tell the world, and if anything happened, we didn't want people asking us how I am doing etc.

    On the other hand, if anything does go wrong before the scan, we would probably tell parents anyway, just dont want people buying us baby stuff - not yet, cos couldnt cope if all was not well, and we had clothes and stuff already

    I guess it is whatever you feel comfortable doing really - I am so excited, but kinda take a step back, and just tell myself, they will know at 12 weeks, that 28 wks of pampering they can do!

    Aww good luck with your scan hun, isent it weird how your best friend guessed!



    Ive only told DH and you guys,

    As its my 4th i know my family/friends are going to have a 'what again' attitude so im not really looking forwards to telling them.

    I cant wait to tell my kiddies but that will have to wait until im passed 12 weeks.

    In the beginning we wanted to wait until the scan... however that didnt last long. Told my mum and my boyfriends parents the day after we found out.

    Told my boss the next week, as she wanted me to fly to Barcelona for business and I didnt want to risk it. Also told a colleague who knew I was TTC, and she is also pregnant so it was great to have each others support.

    Also told another colleague and my best friend. Thats it until the echo in a few weeks time.

    :hug:

    I told my parents the day I found out 'cause I was a bit scared and needed some support.
    I then told the rest of my family (2 older brothers and an older sister) about a week later. Had a bit of a falling out with my sister-in-law though as she told my brother (not the one who's her husband) before I'd had the chance...

    All is well now though and my family are being great. I've not told anyone else which is really really hard as I'm away at Uni on my own :(
