DH wants to wait a month before telling our family... after the miscarriage back in July he's kinda nervous.

I can barely keep my mouth shut though!!

We've shared with BFFs and parents, but that's it. Once I see and hear a heartbeat then it's fair game for all.

We're out of the closet now.

We were planning to wait to tell our boys, but New Year's Day, my 7 y.o. told me he'd seen the pregnancy test in the bathroom. Whoops! So we told them.

I've announced it on my Facebook page, so I'm preettttty sure my grandmother is the only person left I have to call.

I just hate having to be super-duper careful with what I say. I'm not that good at thinking on my feet in social situations, so it's just easier if everyone knows.

We were thinking of waiting until DS' bday party (Feb.15), but now I'm anxious to tell at least our parents and siblings. We may tell them this weekend.

we likely won't tell the rest of the world for a while though.

I'm not telling family until after our first ultrasound. I'm not sure how everyone will react and I want to have a good backup for any concerns.

We are not planning to tell anyone for awhile. Our oldest daughter Brooke knows and my LLL leader also knows.
