How long did you wait to announce your pregnancy?

Posted by   + Show Post
I am 12 weeks and we haven't told anyone yet. I'm really not looking forward to telling anyone because my family will be unsupportive. They all live near me and I see them all the time so I can't wait too much longer. I'd just rather not tell them at all, but I have to at some point. I just don't want to hear negative comments. This is our 5th baby.

My first we told everyone right away. My last I told my mom and sister, then we told MIL and she plastered it on Facebook so I had to call all my family that are on her Facebook so they heard it from me.

Thanks! It was a surprise but we are happy about it. I'm just not happy that I will get to hear negative comments from family.

I have told with each of my kiddos right away. But we just started TTC baby #4, and I am not looking forward to telling people so I'm not sure if I will tell right away again or not. I hate hearing the astounding "OH MY GODS!" and disbelief at anyone having any more than 2.5 children. Our children our loved, taken care of and extremely well provided for by us. Why is it so hard to believe that we would want more beautiful blessings :)
