    Congrats!!! I love the One-A-Day prenatals. I took them last summer and now again as we will be ttc again in another month. Never had any problems with them, myself! I think it is a personal decision on when to tell family. Do you think you could wait? If not, I would tell them. Also, would you rather tell them in person? Everybody feels differently about this topic. Some like to tell right away and others like to wait a little bit. Does your husband want to tell yet or wait? I’m sure they will be so happy at the great news!

    Congratulations! Great news!

    I am (not pregnant but) taking Rainbow Light pre-natals. I take the once-a-day pill, which is convenient. I buy them at whole foods. You can also get them online (better deals). I think I pay $29 for a 90 day supply. I like them so far- no problems at all. 

    As for telling your parents, it would be a lot of fun telling then in person. When I do get pregnant, we’ll probably tell my parents pretty early (maybe 8 weeks), but we will wait a little longer to tell his family because they can’t keep secrets (thinking 10 weeks). And we will definitely wait until the second trimester to tell our friends.

    BEST OF LUCK for a wonderful and healthy pregnancy!!

    I was worried that my family would have thought it was too soon ( this is a honeymoon baby) but they are just ecstatic ! I am 9 weeks along and wondered why i didnt tell my mom sooner ( told her yesterday). Its so nice to be able to talk to her about everything ๐Ÿ™‚

    We told my parents in person around 7 weeks because we were staying with them for a few days, and at that point, nausea had really set in for me, and it was a lot easier to just tell them and let my mom take care of me than to try to come up with some kind of rational excuse for the fact that I had to eat every two hours but couldn’t eat most of the things that are normally my favorites!

    We (ok, I!) told a few people the very day I found out I was pregnant.  I miscarried a week later.  My husband asked me if I had any regrets about telling people (people being mom, brother and 2 friends of 20+ years) and the answer is No.  No regrets, I was so grateful for the love and support that I have received. 

    I am in my TWW and IF (fingers crossed) I am pregnant again, I will tell those same people at Christmas! Best.gift.ever. 

    BUT, it’s a personal choice and eveyone feels differently about it, so talk to you hubs and do what feels right for you.

    I pay 7.00 for Natures blend – 100 prenatal vitamins. I buy them at Kaiser. They are over the counter.

    YAY CONGRATS!  Yes I am a secret bee, and so is user Incognito.  For another 4 weeks anyways ๐Ÿ˜‰


    I take the GNC prenatals.  I also loved the Trader Joes ones.  My OBGYN gave me some samples of an Rx one called Citranatal Harmony and HOLY CRAP they made me so sick.  I dont have morning sickness, but I can imagine that how I felt with those were how it must feel.  Go with what works, he said mine were fine but to try to add some extra DHA in.


    Congrats again!  WOOHOO!

    For the prenatal I highly recommend getting the genetric name brand even like the walgreens or walmart name brand. My doctor told me about getting the cheaper ones (it is the same thing and you save money) and they made my tummy a lot less upset. I had friends that took the more expensive ones that had very bad morning sickness because they took it at night.

    I told my family when I found out (before Facebook was around LOL) i was so scared but I only told them. I didnt tell anyone else until I was pass the 12 week mark. By family I meant my mom and dad.

    Congratulations! I voted in the poll to tell them around Christmas. I know that you won’t officially announce your pregnancy for a while, but I think your parents will be thrilled to hear the news, despite what your concerns might be. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @SecretName: That’s a great idea! I saw a video on TV once where a couple gave their parents “World’s Best Grandpa” and “World’s Best Grandma” t-shirts as gifts to announce their pregnancy. It was adorable!!!
