Agree!

I can't keep it from DH but I've only told one friend. I think we'll announce to family with Mother's Day cards (they all live in different states) and then announce on FB. We will hopefully see some close friends this weekend and I'll probably tell I'm not very good with secrets!

Re: Do you tell?

I've told my husband, siblings and 2 best friends. We are waiting until we can Skype with our parents to tell them "in person." I made a youtube video of when I told DH (had DD give him the test wrapped in Christmas paper) so we'll have them watch that while we are Skyping.
With my DD I didn't wait too long to tell people, and won't with this one either. For me, my thought is that I like to share the good news now because it is just that, good news. If we were to have a miscarriage, I'd be telling them for support anyway, so I'd rather tell them when the news is still all happy. As for Facebook people, that we may just wait until Mother's Day to make it a fun announcement.

Re: Do you tell?

I couldn't keep my mouth shut and told my mom and one of my sisters, but we are holding off for a bit to tell friends and our employees anything. I still keep taking tests in complete disbelief that it's FINALLY happening.

We're telling people on a need to know basis. My LLL co-leader and best friend knows because I am starting to get that first trimester exhaustion and might need help soon. Same with my friends that are working with me on the GCDC. My yoga teachers know because I have to modify my practice. We're waiting to tell family after I hit 12 weeks.

Re: Do you tell?

We've told our kids and immediate family members. I'll probably tell a handful of close friends in the next couple weeks, but otherwise we'll wait until sometime after my 1st appt to spread the news. I'll be 8 weeks then, so we may just opt to wait it out a few more weeks at that point, but we'll see.

Re: Do you tell?

My rule of thumb for telling is whether or not I'd want to hide a miscarriage from a friend. I'm generally an open book, so I've told quite a few friends as I've run into them already. I haven't told my parents, though. They have the tendency to smother me.

Re: Do you tell?

I told everyone with my mc in January, and it was kinda hard "un-telling" everyone. So other than my husband, my BIL(He lives with us, so he'd figure it out pretty soon anyways, since it is physically impossible for me not to yell while throwing up, I'm really loud!), and I'll be telling my mom in person tomorrow when she visits.

I'm hoping this can be a good moral booster for my mom, since she's currently fighting against cancer.

We aren't telling this time. after 2 recent miscarriages we are waiting for the first strong heartbeat ultra sound to tell close family members and waiting till the 3 month mark to "announce" this time around. Having a miscarriage is hard enough without having to deal with all the comments.

Agreed. I want to wait as long as possible. We will probably share w family and friends after heartbeat and I'd love an u/s but not sure if ill have one. I probably won't do anything public or on our blog or fb till summer. But as this is #4 I'm sure ill be showing!!
