11 weeks now and still haven't even told my kids.
I really don't know when I'll tell. I'll probably tell my 14 year old soon since my all day sickness has gotten much worse lately and she must be wondering what the heck is wrong with me being sick & having dizzy passing out spells, lol.
As far as everybody else, idk I'm thinking I'll wait til like 20 weeks just for the shock value!

20 weeks with #1 (and loved it, would totally do it again if I could hide it that long) and 12 weeks with #2 (although we had to tell a few people sooner since I was so sick).

My friends and my hubs family already know..though they will all act as though they dont know when I do announce.  My family is not supportive and theres all kinds of complications as to why NOT to tell them too.

I think we will wait til we know the sex

We told everyone @6 weeks when we got home from our ultrasound. Her heartbeat was strong and healthy and everything was great, plus my mom went and blasted it on her facebook, so we kind of didn't have a choice lol.

Ohhh, so you mean like post on Facebook kinda thing? I've never done that before at least a few months into it. This time I'm considering just posting a pic of the newborn baby as a way of publicly announcing. Lol. In the past I've told my family a couple of weeks after finding out, but I just don't feel like it this time.

To me "announcing" is telling ANYONE outside of the person who helped create the baby and maybe your kids. If your friends and his family know, then it's announced already, your just hiding it from your family.

My mom found out right away when I took the test I drove to her house and was like do you see this? I do and so doesn't.
I didn't tell anyone else until I was 8 weeks but to my surprise, my mom did.
