January 2014 Moms

Have you announced your pregnancy yet?

If so, when?

I just turned 12 weeks and I have no desire of announcing this time around, at least not anytime soon.

Anyone else waiting a bit longer maybe until 16, 20 weeks?

Re: Have you announced your pregnancy yet?

  • I announced to close family and friends between 6 and 8 weeks, but to everyone on Facebook at 13 weeks.

  • I started showing at like 5 weeks, so I was forced to tell early.  I work full time and they could tell right away.  My grandfather was also in the hospital for 3 weeks before he passed away, so I saw my entire extended family on the regular from 6 weeks on.  Again, they could tell right away.

    I announced on FB/my blog after my 2nd ultrasound at 7 weeks. I would have waited longer, but what can ya do?  Can't really hide this belleh, so I'm just going with it.

    If you aren't showing and/or don't see a lot of people on the regular and can hide it when you do, then I'd just wait until you're ready.  My sister waited until after her a/s and then just announced she was pregnant with a baby girl.  Do what feels right.

  • Close family and friends know. There won't be a fb announcement this time around. Even last time I simply changed my profile pic to our son wearing a big brother shirt. I'm kind of over the whole big and cutesy announcement.

  • We announced it at our wedding during our thank you toast, around 8.5 weeks. Our immediate families new ahead of time, as well as our wedding party, but it was a surprise to the other 125 people there.

  • We have only told my sister and good friend, but next weekend we are going up north to my grandparent's house with my brother, SIL, nephew, sister, her boyfriend and my parents, so we will announce then. We aren't 100% sure if I'm actually a week ahead or not, so we are waiting to announce after my dating ultrasound on monday. So our parents and siblings will know and then we will probably wait until closer to 15 or 20 to annouce to facebook. I'm already showing though, so if I run into anyone, they will probably be able to guess anyway lol

    I love that you announced and your wedding and I adore your siggy pic! :)

    We have announced to close friends and family. We most likely will not announce on fb until after the AS scan.

  • We told family and really close friends around 8 weeks.  We will tell everyone else next week after the NT scan because we are going home and I am visibly showing so there won't be any hiding it anyway.  Oh, I had to tell work at 9 weeks because I was showing.

    Same here, waiting to know what we are having before announcing it on fb.
  • i found out at about 4 weeks since i had blood work at my doctor's office. they called me at work, so the girls i work with knew immediately. it's hard to keep stuff like that a secret! we told our families shortly after that. i can't keep a secret to save my life, and my m-i-l always seems to know when something is going on. she guessed with my first pregnancy before we had a chance to tell anyone.

     Aww thank you! We were going to keep it from our family and everything until the wedding, but there's no way I could have done that. I mentioned in another post how I announced it to my parents, but in case you missed it...We went to their house on mother's day with a cake, all wrapped up with ribbon and bows. We were out on the deck and had her open it. She gets all the ribbon and foil off it it and reads "Happy Mother's day...GRANDMA??!?!?!?!" and absolutely flipped out. Meanwhile, my SIL got the whole thing on video on my phone. It's super cute.

  • We started telling family after our first u/s.  We both told our friends in person as well.  I'm not on FB anymore, but I told my H he could announce there after our A/S.  I am the organizer of a moms group as well.  I have been telling the people I am friends with but the others will find out when they see me/baby is born.

  • We told my parents around the 5w mark, DH's mom around 8w4d, some of my family around 11w, DH's grandma and Dh's sister yesterday at 12w5d. We are planning on telling the rest of the family today and this coming week. 

    We're not sure when we are going to announce it on FB, both of our mothers are dying to put something on there and have been begging us for the last two weeks, but we're just not ready yet.  Maybe in the next two weeks?

  • We announced on FB at 14w. But we live abroad and won't see many folks in-person anytime soon. DH has 2 close cousins also expecting - 1 in Oct and 1 in early Jan (like us) and neither has said anything on social media.

    We announced as soon as we found out 8 weeks. It's out first child and we really couldn't contain out excitement.
  • We told everyone when I was 10 weeks. Right after I had my ultrasound and everything looked good.

  • We told our immediate families right away, and close friends at 7 weeks. Said something on FB at 8.5 weeks.

    I know everyone is different, so do what's comfortable for you OP. With my first, we said nothing until my A/S; that's what we were comfortable doing at the time.
