We're telling everyone Xmas day. For hubby's family (who we'll physically be with), we're dressing our daughter in a "soon to be big sister" shirt, and let his Mom take her coat off to see it.



For my family (who's long distance), I'm making a calender with Dec's picture being Maddy in her big sister shirt as well as a tiny picture of the positive pregnancy test on my EDD day.



After that I'll make an announcement on FB for people who aren't close.



I'm so excited and nervous. I am not sure how they are going to react.

There is no way we could tell EVERYONE in our families in person, I have 6siblings and a ton of aunts and uncles and DH has a large family too. I told my mom in person at about 7 weeks, called my dad and my DH told his parents the same day, so 7 weeks. Then at 8 weeks we made a Facebook post with a picture of our bassinet back out of storage that said "here we go again! Baby ____ #3 due in May!". We told everyone at 7 weeks with number 2 as well. Number 1 was a whole different jam.

Oh I just realized that I didn't quite read it properly. We've always told people right away. With our first we didn't even find out until we were 11 weeks, our 2nd we were about 8 weeks. 3rd, which ended in late loss, we told everyone with was at about 5 weeks. Even though we had a loss, this pregnancy we still told everyone as soon as we found out. I didn't make the big Facebook post until I got a hold of the people on the phone that we wanted to. We found out at 4 weeks.
