  • why are you confused about telling them? Would this be NOT good news for any reason or are you looking for Cutesy ideas on how to tell them?

  • A lot of women choose to wait until they're out of their first trimester to tell people, you know, just in case something were to happen. Once you're out of your first trimester you're pretty much in the clear.
    Saying that, though, I was 5 weeks when I found out and I was so excited I shouted it from the rooftops. :) I say go with your heart, hun. If you're close to your mom & your boyfriend's mom, I say go right ahead. It's good to have support every step of the way. Congratulations!!

  • you can turn this into something really fun & creative :) i wish i had done that when i was prego with my first. instead i was on the phone with my mom while peeing on the stick and she was the first to know. but if i could go back, i would've done something cute and fun to break the news!

    you could buy like a "baby on board" shirt or something, invite them over for dinner and wear it maybe? i like the world's greatest grandma idea too!

  • That depends on you and what your partner wants to do. You could just blurt it out. You could set up something special, a dinner, a grandma bib. It really depends on what you want to do. Best of luck.

  • a friend of mine gave them a card telling them they were going to have a grandchild.
