We found out this morning and have told our parents (but not brothers and step-sisters) and one close friend (she has two kids and is a doula and a childbirth educator, so we will be asking her lots of questions)...I plan to tell my two best friends, and that will be it for now...I decided to tell everyone who I would be comfortable, or even need, to have know if there was a problem and the pregnancy didn't continue. I thought that I would want to tell EVERYONE...but I am finding myself more nervous thank I'd expected, and feeling a bit more private than usual.

Nursed my babe, dd2 (2008) until self weaned at 3yrs. We survived a major nursing strike.
Awesome for Baby #3 who turned out to be a (Aug 2013)!
I'll probably tell the rest of my family at Christmas, though I might wait even longer if they don't notice my bump. Yes, I have one already!

(and oh, did i mention we're having twins?!?)
When we tell others may be determined by whether I have a visible bump or not (which I'd love!) Otherwise, it'll atleast be January. Family circumstances dictate that people will know by March anyway.
My sister is due in 3 weeks. That's part of why I want to wait.
