When will you announce your pregnancy?

Do you know?

I won't be telling anyone until atleast the 2nd trimester, so probably around 13/14 weeks.

Anyone have any special ways they are announcing it?

I haven't a clue yet. I already told my best friend. She thought it was cute how I told her. I said my friends better stop asking my to be in their bridal parties. A very close friend asked me six years ago, I was 9 weeks (and still hiding it) with my oldest. My best friend asks me, I end up pregnant and giving birth 4 weeks before her weddling. My sister asked me to be her maid of honor and a month later I find out....my best friend started squealing and saying ohmigod! At this point. And then I told her I'm due 4 weeks before my sister's wedding.
That went over well with my best friend, but she's always supportive. I know the family will not take this news well. DH's side commented on not wanting anymore grandkids. And I know my mom will come around, but I know she's going to yell and give her option for the first little while. I'm not looking forward to it.

Hi Erin,

iVillage put together a fun slideshow with a bunch of creative ideas for announcing your pregnancy. Hopefully one of them will inspire you!

I'll be waiting until 14 weeks for family and may wait until 20 weeks for work.

That is a cute way to tell your best friend.

I've never been that creative with telling people. I think it's a cute idea, but I've just told them whenever I feel like it and however it comes up in conversation. Some people already know about this one. I am less secretive about it this time than I was last time around.

Wow, I can't believe your family would be so unsupportive. I hope you are pleastanly surprised and they are happy for you! I can't imagine how awful I'd feel if I was treated badly for something so happy. *hugs* mama

My DH is so excited he told his dad the day after we found out. I am going to have a tough time not telling people. Thinking we may tell our kids this weekend and then I will tell my mom since little mouths probably won't stay closed. Then I suspect my oldest may blab on facebook

I have told my bf, step sister, and dd's. I am holding back the urge to scream it to the world. Dh hates keeping the secret till 12 weeks so I have compromised and agreed to making it public next week because it makes him nicer to live with.

So far only my husband and my mother know. I think we are going to wait awhile...maybe around 12 weeks or so. We will probably just tell anyone we want to know. People know we were trying so it won't be a surprise.
