MarJo03:We're waiting until after we see the baby and hear the heartbeat. So around 10 weeks is when we'll tell everyone.
oh ok...i got to see the baby/heartbeat at 6w5d so told immediate family and a couple close girlfriends after that, but waiting to tell others until at least 12 week appointment....
iris427:I'm waiting until the end of the first trimester. We've already seen the heartbeat and the baby wiggling around on an ultrasound, but I'm paranoid.
me too.... are you considering end of first trimester 12 weeks? 13? 14?
We're telling in stages- I told DH, Mom, and friend at work almost immediately.
We told my Dad, Grandma, DH's parents and siblings, and a couple other really close friends after the first u/s and heartbeat.
We plan on telling friends and other people after the first trimester, probably about 12 weeks. I teach and I'm hoping to keep this under wraps from my nosey high school students as long as possible.
We told our families right away, and then we were going to wait until our u/s at 11 weeks.
I went to the hospital last week for bleeding (was totally fine) and found out about the twins. Seeing those two precious blobby babies with their strong beating hearts was just too much for me. I couldn't keep it a secret any longer! We called up all of our friends that night and showed off u/s pics to coworkers the next day.
Yesterday, I even blurted it out to the facebook community. :-O
The only people who don't know are the 70 kids who go to the after school program that I run. I figure that they don't need to know until I'm showing.
Hels:I'm really conflicted. I wanted to wait until after the NT scan (12 weeks-ish), but I'm starting to feel like a total lier. Our friends are straight up asking if I'm pregnant, and I just look at them and say "No". It's getting annoying. I'm hoping to make it to 10 weeks... I haven't been feeling well and feel like I've been in radio silence and neglecting my friendships. I really want people to know there's a reason I'm MIA.
i know how you feel... i felt so bad about "avoiding" people and "lying"....so i had to tell a couple close girlfriends.
After the NT scan at 13 wks. Immediate family and close friends already know but that is it.
It is a battle with my closet everyday since I already have a belly (call it bloat or whatever you want but it's there!!).
We're waiting until we're through the first trimester and it should fall right around Thanksgiving. We are hosting both families and plan to share the news then. I already hinted that I'd love to get a big family picture (since both families haven't been together since our wedding) and we plan to set everyone up and get the camera on a timer. We want to do 1 picture where we go "Everyone say cheese!" and then we want to do one more where we go "Ok everyone, say '<my name>'s pregnant!" and hope to get a comical picture out of it capturing their reactions.
