    Wait to tell in person - you've already waited this long and it'd be fun to see reactions! : (22 votes)

    Congratulations! I will be 12 weeks on Saturday too, with twins. We told parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles all last week. We will tell cousins & close friends this weekend (via phone, text, or in person), and then starting 4th of July weekend we just won’t hide it, I am already showing. I haven’t decided if/when we will put anything on fb, maybe after we know the genders.

    I was in a very similar situation. I told my whole family before 12 weeks because I was just too excited and we told DH’s parents before that also. We then waited until a family party for DH’s family to tell them and post anything on Facebook. I was 16 weeks at that point. It was hard to keep it from escaping on Facebook and I really wanted to post something, but it was worth it to see their faces. At that point I was already kind of showing so everyone was staring at us suspiciously, but too afraid to say anything. We let them squirm for a minute and then said, “well, we have some news” and everyone shouted out “OMG your pregnant”. It was so funny.

    I don’t want to tell anybody (inclduing parents) until 12 weeks so I’d wait until the 15 weeks personally. The less time people have to bug me about it the better! If I could just give birth one day without telling anyone I totally would lol It’s up to you guys though ultimately.

    E_Lynne615:  I think you’re in the clear to safely tell people, but I would wait and do it in person because it is SO FUN to see people’s faces. It is totally worth it to do it in person, IMO.

    I told people in person (before 12 weeks), but just felt kind of awkward lol. If you think the reactions will be worth it then wait, otherwise I would just let it out now!
