We've told on a need to know basis so far, but it's started to creep out beyond the few that truly needed to know. Which is something I expected so I'm not upset about it. We had to abandon a large family get together very very last moment (I was going to the bathroom before we started driving to the second part and saw red spotting so we left immediately) and I'm pretty sure that most everyone present (inlaws) suspects or knows now.
But I really wanted to wait until 8 weeks. Buuuut now there are people who deserve to know (like my sister who isn't in my inlaws gossip loop) before it becomes common gossip so I'm going to have to tell soon. Probably Friday at 7 weeks.
We told our moms and my brother about 2-3 days after we found out and 2 very close friends, one of whom just happened to guess that I was pregnant, which was really random, and I couldnt deny it. I'm a terrible liar.
Telling my dad after our first appointment next week. I'm terrified to tell him for some reason.
Probably will tell everyone else in the next few weeks. People are going to start wondering why all of a sudden I quit having a glass of wine and just up and quit smoking. I will probably be outed to another handful of people this weekend at my husbands birthday celebration..
My immediate family we told right away for our first pregnancy and for this one. Even though my first pregnancy ended in a m/c, I am still glad to have my family's support. They helped make that time feel less painful.
As far the extended family and friends, we told them on Monday after the doctor said that he fully expects us to be changing diapers this time next year.
But you should do what you think feels right.
We told our friends and family right away...we did ivf so all my close friends and family knew. I worn announce it till after my NT scan...
