  • We tried to wait 3 months with each, but my mother and my MIL have an uncanny way of knowing so the surprise was ruined both times.

  • With my first I didnt tell her until I went to her wedding. I had been told I miscarried so I didnt even know til close to 5 months. After that she knew about my pregnancies right away.

  • My mom knew before I did! I had no idea I was pregnant (we weren't trying, and I was on BC) and before I even had an inkling that I was pregnant my mom asked me one day if I was pregnant and I was shocked. I had no idea why she would be asking. About 3 weeks later I started getting all the "symptoms" and realized I was pregnant..
    How did she know though? I asked her and she said "I could just tell.." She knew all three times my sister was pregnant too??

  • My mom knew the day we found out. Why wouldn't you want your parents to know?

  • I waited about 2 wks to tell my mom for 2 reasons: we weren't really talking much, and I wanted to tell her on Mother's Day.

    I didn't tell my dad until after I was 3 months pregnant, because he lives 1000 miles away and doesn't really care. lol

  • My mom knew after DH did, as soon as I took the test. My dad knew 2 days later.
    We told MIL the day after (I took the test 7 pm, which is 2 am her time, lol)

  • We waited until 3 months, since we'd heard most mis's occur before then. Looking back on it, we really should have just told them when we first knew. At the time it was nice to have the secret just between us.
