Who have you told so far?
Sat, 12-04-2010 - 8:10pm

I know I just found out on the 30th... my first call was to my best friend...(girl chat, obviously needed haha)... and i waited almost 2 whole days before telling my boyfriend who was over the moon excited even though we werent at all planning/trying. So far I have only told one other friend (a photographer) and the ladies on these boards. We're thinking about telling our family over christmas :)

How about you??

IRL, only my DH and my BFF who lives in a different state know! I don't feel comfortable telling anyone else until after I've had an u/s. I had one at 6w6d last time around and I hope to have one a little later this time (like ~8wks at least), so it will likely be closer to January when we tell.

DH knows and one of my closest friends knows. I have had miscarriages in the past, so it's really hard for me to tell people until I see or hear the heartbeat. DH and I haven't really decided for sure when we will tell our families...but I kind of want to wait until someone notices! I just wonder how long it would take!!

We have already told most everyone close to us- there's some family out of town that I will likely call at Christmas time. I understand the waiting until later to see if everything's ok, but I wouldn't keep a miscarriage to myself, either - I think I would need all the support I could get and if people didn't even know I'd been pregnant it'd be difficult. We did wait until after the blood draws at the doc's office - I had 2, 2 days apart, to make sure HCG was doubling and did did exactly double.

Plus I want to start scoring hand me downs asap.
