Pregnancy Pregnancy

How Long Before You Announced?

Posted by   + Show Post
We have been waiting longer and longer lately. Usually we would tell our family around 14-16 weeks.

Last time (baby 7) we didn't say anything until 24 weeks.

I am 21 weeks tomorrow and still haven't said anything. Not even to the kids. Just DH and I know.

Personally, other than my kids, I don't really care to say anything.

If I can hold it in that long, I think I will wait until I am at least 10 weeks.

 We just found out Saturday that I was pregnant with our 3rd child. We talked about waiting until the 1st doctor's appointment......but everyone knows. DH was like telling people at the store so we figured to just tell everyone. Plus we are super excited and wanted our son's and family to share that with us:)

I told everybody at 4 weeks...basically as soon as I knew everybody knew. I did that with both my children.

I can't and don't wait. I share the news when I find out. I don't believe in waiting because it is bad luck or anything :)

I tried to hide mine, but I had violent morning sickness in the beginning and couldn't hide it in front of my niece and sister.

LOL! I totally would if my mom hadn't threatened to kill me a few pregnancies back if I did. LOL!

She was on the phone today and patted my tummy. I told DH I know she's known for a while.
