We have two children that I take to work with me. We r expecting number 3 and have 6 miscarriages inbetween my two living. So we have waited to say anything, for the fear of miscarriage and from my dad having a stroke knowing im bringing another baby into the office. Not that this baby isnt important or just as wanted as my other two but im 12 weeks almost 13 weeks pregnant amd I dont know when or how to tell!! help, suggestions, have u told yet?

A lot of people feel pretty safe telling after the first tri, which obviously you are really close to being done with. As far as how, I'd just say, but I'm not real cutesy about things. lol Hopefully your dad will be ok with you bringing 3 kids to work! I'm sure you have a good system in place. I wouldn't get anything done if I had my dd with me at work. lol

I just finally told my parents because I was too scared that they would freak out. My mom actually took it quite well, which surprised me. As far as how to tell, you know your dad better than almost anybody else. Do you think he is going to be upset, mad, worried, happy, etc.? Plan from there and if all else fails take him out to lunch and just tell him. He'll probably be able to tell that something is on your mind.

I'm now looking five months pregnant so my stomach says it all. I only told those that mattered, mother and siblings. But now that I look and feel pregnant I don't care who knows. If u don't think anyone would be excited then I wouldn't suggest planning a special way to tell them.

Thanks everyone for your response. I posted on facebook, so all the people that arent going to be excited for us can get over it and come to us nicely. And to so they can read how many people are happy for us and make themselves feel rude for not being happy for us( if that makes sense). Lol.. Neways!!! We will see already a ot of good response.
