Anyone else waiting until 2nd trimester to make it public?

This is our first pregnancy and we already told our family and close friends but haven't made it public on social media yet.

    We will be waiting until Easter which is right around the start of my 2nd trimester. We also told close friends and family already.

    We are waiting to tell everyone, even close friends and family. My mom is the only one who knows so she can help me watch DD! DH's parents are wonderful, but have a very hard time keeping secrets from extended family!

    We have told our families and close friends and haven't really discussed the social media aspect of announcing it. if at some point we decide that we want to we will but I'm guessing it'll be way past that 12 week mark. I'm kinda just hoping a prego picture of me will end up on there and it won't be on me to make the announcement. The people we care about most know or will at 12 weeks.

    We'll probably go public around the first of April, which will be early 2nd trimester. I feel like if everything looks good at my next appointment (3/27), we can go ahead and share the news. If we experience a loss after that, we'll deal with telling people. Can't keep quiet much longer though, because I am getting big!

    Our family and very close friends know, but we are waiting until the second trimester to make it "Facebook official" :)

    We've told our parents and a couple close friends, and we'll probably tell more family around the end of the first trimester, but we want to wait to do the big announcement until we know the gender :)

    We are making it public at 13 weeks. So far only a very small handful I people know and we are waiting for the hubs parents to come visit us in just over a week to spill the beans. Let's hope they are happy :)

    We haven't told anyone yet... Waiting until the 12 week scan which I am HOPING will be just before Easter
  • Options
    I would love to wait but I will have a super excited 11 year old little girl once we do the big reveal to her next weekend. Then we are letting my daughter announce it to the rest of the family via Skype and phone. Also my husband pastors a church and I want the congregation praying for me...once they know it might as well be on facebook. So I will only be a little over 8 weeks all around but since I live in a "fish bowl" I'm ok with that.

    We're only going to tell family and work as far as making it public. And other friends when we see them. I really want to wait til the last possible time to tell, into second tri if possible, or just not tell until specifically asked. But I'm not sure I can pull that off. This is my second and I'm practically showing at 7 weeks...

    Our close family and friends know,we're waiting until 12 week scan before we let others know. Although, at 7 weeks, im already showing lol.

    We were going to announce on Facebook at 12 weeks but I'm starting to think I want to wait to get the results of our genetic testing, which we should have by 13 weeks.

    We will probably tell everyone April 10th. I will be 14 weeks then but we have an ultra sound that day and I figured I would rather wait another week to make sure everything is okay before telling the rest of the world. We have already told close family and friends tho.

    We told my mother in law and our daughters last week, and my husband told two of his close friends. We are waiting until after the 12 week NT scan to share with everyone else. With this pregnancy, I have had zero symptoms. I have not had a ultrasound or heard the heartbeat yet (in fairness, Ive only gone to my 8 week appointment so they didn't try the Doppler). This pregnancy doesn't even seem real at times so I'm waiting until I see our healthy LO before I spill the beans :-)

    We told our family and close friends. We are going to put something on Facebook week of Easter. I am going to tell my coworkers and boss that same week which will be right around 2nd trimester. I hope I can make it till that time. My nausea might give it away earlier.

    We are telling the extended family Easter weekend and then slowly letting coworkers and friends know. I don't plan on making an announcement on social media.

    Already close friends and family know but yep social media easter announcement here too, I'll be 14 weeks at that point.  I bought this cutest little thing on etsy that says "we are eggspecting our own little bunny"  arriving October 2015.

    Yup, a bit into the 2nd as long as I'm not obviously showing because my sister is having her son's first birthday party right at my 2nd mark, and then we'll be celebrating my son's 3rd birthday.  Don't want to upstage our awesome boys, so we'll let them revel in their birthday glory and THEN spread the news.

    I'm doing a social media announcement on April 1. That'll keep them guessing.
