when are you making the annoucement

Hi mommys to be!

When are you making the big annoucement to the world that you're expecting?

Im due june 22nd and have only toldclose family and friends but Im getting anxious!

Re: when are you making the annoucement

  • Also due June 22. Have no plans to tell the "world". We told family at 5w, work at 7w (I had to go I extended sick leave due to HG), and we told close friends and extended family (via phone or in person) this weekend. 11ish weeks.

    We won't announce on FB until viability, so sometime in March. Or maybe not. Haven't decided. We may just wait and announce the birth. I don't really care when my old friends from HS (& other people I have similar relationships with on FB) find out. Anyone I'm close to will find out in person individually when we see them if they don't know already.

  • DH told his family today. He wanted to do so in person and today was his first chance. However, apparently they were not super surprised. A few weeks ago I posted a pic of DD on Instagram. I'm friends with a group of moms from my other BMB. When I got my BFP I shared a private message with all the mamas letting them know. However, I assumed that they knew that it wasn't public knowledge until I posted something on my public page. However, one of them in their excitement let a comment slip that said "she's so pretty [referring to DD] can't wait to see number #2!" Then a friend of mine from high school made a comment like "does this mean you have some news?" I immediately deleted both comments. However, apparently DH's younger cousin saw it and made a comment to my ILs. So, cat kinda came out of the bag early. Now I'm wondering who else saw it. A few of my cousins have Instagram accounts and follow me, but none of them have said anything to me. 

    I'm not sure when I will tell my family. I'm excited to, but also nervous. My mom always goes on and on about how she feels that mine and my sister's 3 year age gap is perfect and how she wouldn't have any less of an age difference. She's also going through a lot with my grandma who is in the early stages of dementia/Alzheimer's and currently living with them. I know that deep down she'll be excited, but worried I won't get the best reaction. And my sister, ugh. I'm dreading that. She's never excited about anything that takes attention away from her. 

    As for the rest of the world--planning on sending out an announcement to close friends and family in our Christmas card. They'll be a little late because our first US isn't until Dec. 11th. I may or may not post an announcement on Facebook close to/on Christmas. 

    Sorry this was a novel.

  • I'm also 6/22.

    I have told 3 close friends, but that's it. We will tell our families at Christmas, our other friends as we see them after that, and our employers in the new year at some point. Unsure on whether we'll announce the pregnancy on FB or if I'll just announce the actual birth in June.

    I have my NT scan on 12/10 so if everything goes well at that point I'll start getting on daycare wait lists at least.

  • We are due 6/15 with twins. We told my parents before Halloween. We told DH's mom and our siblings after my US mid November. We announced to everyone else on Thanksgiving. I have an amazing support system, so God forbid anything happens, I'll have lots of people there for me!

  • We told only a couple close friends and immediate family in the beginning, and after my 11 week appt told H's work and the rest of my family. So we aren't hiding it anymore! Never did anything 'FB official' yet, haven't decided when or if we will this time. If anything it won't be until after my next appointment on the 16th when I'll be 15 weeks and hopefully get to hear the heartbeat for the first time, my birthday is the 18th and I might put something up then.

    We've told my sister & his sister. I've told a few close friends. Sometimes while working, my emotions make go crazy I'll blurt out "these pregnancy hormones are kicking my butt!" (I haven't worked in the town I & my parents live in since I found out so I know I'm safe blurting it out in different cites across the state, that and don't want people calling & complaining about my attitude.)

    Telling my parents tomorrow, and his on Tuesday. I'm telling work (one supervisor already knows) at the Christmas party this Saturday.
    Holy crap, this is going to be a busy week!!

    Earliest I'll tell FB is after a couple people have opened their Christmas gifts.

  • Several people know already, but we're planning to officially announce to my employer and our friends (basically all from work) next week. We have our NT scan Wednesday 12/3 at 13w1d, so assuming Peanut is still kicking up a storm in there, I'll tell my employer Thursday, and we're thinking about getting our friends together to announce on Friday night.

    We haven't really decided about Facebook yet. I hardly use fb and don't really care very much, but it is the only way I keep in contact with much of my extended family so we'll probably announce there in a week or so.

  • Dec 22nd after ultrasound ill be 16 weeks
  • We won't announce to the "facebook world" until we're on our way to the hospital. Those that are important to us and see us frequently already know. Its baby #3 and I feel like I'm taking away from it but with the other two I just go tired of answering questions.

  • We've told our immediate families, and two close friends. If I had it my way, that would be it :-P
    Alas, DH is chomping at the bit to announce on Facebook, and I feel that I have a couple more friends to tell first-hand and I think I should tell work first, as well.
    I wish I could convince him to keep it under wraps until after Christmas, but I don't think that'll happen.

  • We announced on Thanksgiving, Just shy of 11 weeks
  • We told family on Halloween.  Telling most friends as I see them, so there's still a handful that don't know.  I texted/emailed friends that live farther away on Thanksgiving, wishing them a happy Thanksgiving and telling them.

    I don't do facebook announcements.

  • I was 13 weeks last Friday so I announced to most friends and family on Thanksgiving. I'm a FTM so my DH and I are extremely excited!

    However, we're not doing a Facebook announcement.
  • Again, I'm another June 22nd girl :) 

    I will announce to close friends and the rest of family probably around new years or January... but FB or anyone else won't hear a peep until the birth. Although I'm hardly ever on FB anyway...

  • I told very close family and a few good friends straight away. I had my 12 week scan on Friday so I have had a lovely weekend telling people and today I'm announcing it to all my work collegues - I can't wait! It feels so real now it's not a secret anymore and people have been so excited for us. Apparently a lot of people are going to get their knitting needles out! x

  • We told immediate family and close friends pretty much the day we got our BFP. But we will wait until our 12 week ultrasound on December 12th to make it totally public.
  • We are told our immediately families on Thanksgiving, and are telling our extended families and all friends via Christmas cards I'm putting in the mail today... I will be 14 wks Wed and our Nt ultrasound went well at 12 weeks. I am just feeling nervous now... Like what if we had a miscarriage at 17 weeks? It would be so awful and even more awful to have to tell everyone.. I should just trust in God that it will be okay, but after my miscarriage in July, I know how precious and fragile a baby's life can be.

    I'm telling work today (eek!) but close friends and family already know. DH really wants a facebook announcement (I probably wouldn't if he didn't want to so badly) so I think I'll give him the go ahead a bit closer to Christmas.

    Edited to note that I'm 13w4d today
  • Im june 18th, we've told his family and my best friends. My family which is much larger than his we will send out xmas cards with announcement on them. We are waiting to tell my mom and anybody we thought may have a negative reaction

  • We told close family and friends. I'm thinking of adding it to the holiday card as well (from xx, xx, xx & baby #2, expected June 2015). It's a little earlier than I would like but it's an easy way to get it out there. I won't put it on Facebook. I'll be 16 weeks on Christmas so they'll get the cards a week or two before that. I told everyone at 12 weeks with my 1st pg and miscarried at 13 weeks. I don't want to go through that public pity party again. I waited until 20 weeks with dd. Hmm, decisions decisions...

  • We have told our close friends and family after we heard the heart beat last Monday and not really hiding it anymore. We have not announced anything on facebook yet we are waiting till after our NT scan on Wednesday. I am excited to announce online because since we moved so far away from family and friends and with the time change we don't get to connect to some people as often as we used to :)

  • I'm also due June 22nd! :) I've told my close friends and family.. I want to hold off until week 14 to announce it to the world (Facebook.. Haha) but it will probably happen sooner!

  • I'm 12+1 and we told damn near everybody once IVF worked and I was 6 weeks. It was way too exciting to hold the secret, and since it was male factor infertility, I didn't/don't fear miscarriage.. Maybe I have been too reckless but so far so good.

    So yeah I told the world early on at 6/7 weeks. No Facebook crap? Just close coworkers and close friends and family.
