Everyone else will know probably soon... sometime in the next couple of weeks I'm sure. I've decided that no matter how long this precious soul is sent to be with me, I don't want to live his/her existance paralyzed wih fear as I ahve been with pregnancies in the past. So this time I am sharing his or her life with his or her family and friends, the people who will support us no matter what... and hoping for the very best outcome. This time feels differen and I sure hope that I am right.

Dh and I decided to tell our immediate family. My immediate family already knows, his will find out this Sunday. I have a really cute way of telling them since ours will be the first on their side. On my family's side it will be the second grandchild. Our extended families will have to wait till like after the first trimester or first appt.
I'm a blabbermouth. We've told our parents, our daughter and our best friends. Some people think I'm an idiot for telling dd but I disagree. I think it's the honest and respectful thing to do, and if something happens, God forbid, she's intelligent enough to handle it.
mellydis: My MIL is just like your dad. I tend to disagree about the money-thing. We don't have much money, but we have done just fine with dd. We just don't have the "freedom" to buy every little thing that comes out. Personally, I think a human life is worth more than, say, being able to provide your kid with an iPod. Now if you can't afford to feed a kid... that's another story.
Like Triscuit, I have had a history of losses (well, two losses). We have told my parents because they live down the street, and my dh's brother. I would like to wait until my 8week u/s before we tell the rest of the world, including the rest of dh's family.
If we end up losing this baby too I will still tell people close to us about him/her. I just won't broadcast it to everyone and their brother, iykwim.
Miranda~SAHM to Rhiannon(10), Arielle(8), & Harrison(3).
Married to my best friend & expecting baby #4 in June 2013!
I've already told my best friend as soon as I saw the line, then another friend when I couldn't reach my best friend (left a message on bf's voice mail, and she called back while talking to friend #2). Then I told a local mom's forum while on the phone with bf. Then I told DH that night (yes, a forum knew before my DH , and then I told the whole online world, just about.
We're waiting to tell friends at church until after we tell the grandparents. And we're waiting to tell DS#1 until at least close to time to tell the grandparents, so he doesn't blab! I've already told DS#2, but he doesn't talk much yet, so no worries of him spilling the beans.
I couldn't possibly wait until 12 weeks... It's killing me just to wait 2-3 weeks before telling the grandparents!!!
Mama to Tornado Boy (6/04), The Brute (11/06), and Mischief (05/09)... expecting in February '15
