When to tell????

Mar 27, 2011 - 11 comments

Okay, so we haven't told any family or friends that I am pregnant yet. First we wanted to get it confirmed with the dr, but even talked about waiting til about 8 weeks or so to make sure everything is okay. What do you all think?? When is the best time to tell people? I just don't want anything to happen and then have to explain that to people...

I was so excited I told my family with a surprise gift (see the photos a pink and blue mini stroller/cariage & the PT) around 6 weeks pregnant it was a week or so after the blood tests confirmed it.

We waited until thirteen weeks and the NT scan with DD#1 because we didn't want to have to untell everyone again.  With DD#2 we told at 8 weeks after a good u/s because we had to go to the in-laws for the weekend, and I had such bad morning sickness there was no way I could hide it.  Funny- both times it was on Easter weekend, and we gave the grandmas a plastic egg with the u/s picture in it.  The first time my MIL said "This better have chocolate in it!"  The second time she said "We were just talking about that Easter you gave us eggs, too bad it's not the same thing this time-- GASP!"
Congratulations!

I waited until 14 weeks when the OB said "you know you have to tell people at some point". I was afraid to bc of previous miscarriage. I made him promise it was safe to tell people lol

whenever you feel comfprtable to tell people. we told close family & friends (important people in our lives) when we had it confirmed at about 5-6weeks & everyone else (less important people) after 12week scan.
HH9M to you. hope you breeze though your pregnancy. xx

Because of my very recent miscarriage--after seeing a strong heartbeat at 7 weeks--I would definitely wait until after 12 weeks if it were me....we didn't tell our friends or colleagues, and it makes things less difficult now.
But, celebrate and enjoy your good news!

we're waiting until 11 weeks (Mother day) I found a really cute poem that im gonna print out on nice paper and roll up in a scroll and give to both our moms :)

I do not have a face to see, Or put inside a frame. I do not have soft checks to kiss, I don't yet have a name. You can't yet hold my tiny hands, Nor whisper in my ear. It's still too soon to sing a song, Or cuddle me so near. But all will change come ________, That's when the say i'm due. I'm you new grandson or grandaughter, I can't wait till I meet you. All I ask between now and then, Is your patience while I grow. I promise I'll be worth the wait, Because of all the love we'll know. So what I have to give you now, is a wish to you from me. I cannot wait to be a part Of this wonderful family.
