  • I waited as long as it took the phone to ring and for them to pick up. It's too exciting to hold to myself.

  • We found out at night and told everyone the next morning and live in a small town so news spread fast. With our next one we are going to wait until someone says something to my dh's mom who works in the center of where all the gossip takes place at our convience store.

  • I told my mom, MIL & FIL the night we found out, but all our friends we waited until I was like b/t 6-10 weeks along. On Thanksgiving, I am going to tell the rest of my family. I'm scared to tell anyone though b/c I am considered high risk and have had a lot of bleeding and I do not want to have a miscarriage. I would have waited longer to tell my friends, but my DH was too excited and couldn't wait and split the beans.
