  • yes, my 3 pregnancies were announced before 12 weeks. the longest i waited with to tell was my 3rd, i was closer to 10 weeks before i made it public. i was afraid of judgments because my 2nd was only 4 months when i got pregnant again. i guess i told sooner with the other 2 cause im not good at keeping secrets. lol

  • I took a picture of the positive test, scrapbooked it, and sent that out to friends and family...

  • Yes I did with both of my pregnancies. I was too excited, and bad at keeping secrets like that. Luckily, nothing bad happened.

  • Yes I always ended up spilling before 12 weeks. Mostly because I always had morning sickness pretty bad, so I had a hard time hiding it. People would end up guessing.
    With my last baby it was so bad and we were staying with my inlaws. I had to tell.

  • As soon as I knew for sure we told our families, made the official announcment to everyone else as soon as all of our immediate family members knew. So it was right away for us. I dont think I could wait till 12 weeks to make the announcment
