Hi ladies,

Has anyone given thought to when they will announce your pregnancy?  Will you do anything special/fun to announce your big news??

We're thinking about Memorial Day weekend, since I'll be 12 weeks.  We're going to send cards to the grandparents & great-grandparents with an u/s picture in side.  Once they all know, we'll start telling friends.

I am horrible with keeping secrets. I have already told everyone and I just blurted it out basically, nothing too fancy.

I told one friend right away, even before DH!  We told our kids on Sunday at dinner.  TODAY we are telling our parents.  DH is traveling to his parents for a trip for work, so he will tell them in person.  The kids and I made a little photo collage to tell my parents.  We often send photos to the Walmart photo lab for my parents to pick up.  It's easier and safer than mail!  So my mom won't be surprised when I tell her that there are photos to pick up.  She will be very surprised by what is inside!  I can't wait.  She'll probably call from the parking lot.  :)

We won't share the news widely for awhile.  (Although my 4 year old told his preschool teacher on Monday!)

..... I already told everybody. I had to because of work. I just started a new job so getting time off for drs appts was going to be a problem unless I told them. So I did. Our surprise part is going to be the gender reveal. :) I wanna have a big party.

I told some people here at work because I had no choice; I've had to leave for doctor appointments etc.. But I have not told any family members yet. I am not sure if I'm going to do it after tomorrow's us or if I'm going to wait until 12 weeks. I am so scared to tell everyone and then have a misscarriage, but if the results tomorrow come out very good and I see a strong heart beat, then its going to be difficult not to say anything :)

Just popping in over here, but I'm jealous of your plans! When I announced my pregnancies we just told our family over the phone and then told the people at work as we felt like it. We're pretty boring that way I guess. :)
