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 had my dd tell close people and then my mom posted it on FB. Then I sent picture txts of the u/s to people I'm close with but don't see enough to tell in person.
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
For family I made a video "for my husband" titled happy Anniversary of photos from our while relationship then had a photo of my son holding the first US photo a photo if my tummy then a clip from my thirteen week ultrasound.
Ad for friends and facebook, haven't said anything yet ..thinking I should say something soon I'm almost seventeen weeks

Im 5 weeks too, but i mshow early and if i see my grandparents in a month i dont want to have to suck in! Lol i will probably just call them and tell them today
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 I told my family a week after I found out, it was on thanksgiving 2007 then I had a miscarriage on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. With my others I told my family after my 8th week and anounced it publicly after my 1st ultrasound that was done at 11 or 12 weeks.
I told a few close family members about a week after I found out. so about 5 weeks..We wont tell the rest until around christmas (11-12 weeks). And i wont be posting on facebook until we have the baby. lol
With mu first two i told right away. With my third i waited until 11 weeks. With my fourth i waited until around 18-20 weeks
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 wh**e 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!!
