How do you do it? Call family and friends and then tell them, and then post it on FB?




How long do you nomrlaly wait? I am already tired of keeping this a scret and ahve told my mom and dad and a few friends and obviously my BG friends on FB know, but i just want to get it out. But all our family needs to knowpersonally first cjz id never hear the end if we just told everyone via FB...

I told those who were closest to me face to face and then announced on FB at 12 weeks with a picture that apparently a ton of people didn't understand lol

Since we now live away from all family/friends, we each called out close ones. Then posted on facebook and the word spread from there.



Oh, and we told people pretty quick. I was like 5 weeks along.

With my first I told my mom right away n she told some family. But we waited to tell some people. With my second I waited a few weeks until I was a little further along. Then I had my son tell my mom "mommy has a baby in her belly" and posted the us pic on fb

I sent a text to family after my gma stalked my Facebook and found a convo I had with someone on their page talking about being pregnant.
Then I posted my ultrasound on Fbook to announce to everyone else.

With DS we told everyone right away, but with DD we only told my parents an sister while I was still in the 1st trimester, but waited until about 15weeks to tell everybody else, only because I am at risk for miscarriages.

I don't really live close to any family so I called or sent a text. I only told a few family members then put up a weekly pregnancy update thing for people to find out that way.

We told immediate family when we found out--my MIL/FIL and my mom/step dad and my dad/step mom, and my sister. We didn't tell anyone else until late august/early september

with my 1st we told his parents and mine and my sisters as soon as we found out!
2nd around 8 wks
3rd didnt tell his family (they get really really really pissed!! since we have a lot of kids!) they found out around 20wks
4th didnt tell anyone until 8wks (my family only) because i went thru the misdiagnosed miscarriage i needed my mom!
his family was out of the loop until i started showing..at like 12 wks

i choose not to tell his family becasue they are SOOO damn judgmental..i love his family but since we have 7 kids and my DH has another one from a previous marriage that he pays for ...we just get judged...it sucks...his sister at one point even called me a whore who planned this kid (#2) i was like geee thanks sis!

i want more kids DH DOES NOT! but i really do after i graduate school next yr..and hell be a chef by then so i want another one...gonna try to talk him into actually TTC a kid !!

but if i get pregnant before it wouldnt be the best timing and money is TIGHT...so we would definitely get called names!!
