summerbride2016 :  the first time I was pregnant, we didn’t really have time to tell anyone because we suffered a very early loss. When I did confide in my close family and friends they were heartbroken for us but amazing support to have around. This time when we got pregnant, we told our close family and friends pretty much right away, and when we suffered our second loss, we again were super grateful to have people to listen and talk to. Everyone is different so do what’s best for you. Also, I’m not sure if we will ever make a big announcement on social media, but if we do, it’ll be after the 20 week mark.

summerbride2016 :  We told immediate family right away as soon as we heard the heartbeats (around 6 weeks) since they knew about our fertility treatments. We told extended family and close friends at 12 weeks. I don’t think we’ll ever make a big social media annoucement just because so much can go wrong with twin pregnancies. Probably won’t officially announce it until the babies are actually here. We’re cautious like that though. If you’re comfortable “untelling” people in the event something goes wrong, I say tell as many people as you want! Good luck and wishing you a happy and healthy 9 months!

With both pregnancies we didn’t tell a soul until 12-13 weeks after an u/s. I am so close with my fam as is my Darling Husband, we see them multiple times per week and it is actually kind of fun having this little secret. Sometimes it was/is a little tricky, esp when my morning sickness was at its peak!

We told our parents the same week we found out. We wanted them to know ASAP. We had a few sets of friends we told at like 6-8 weeks because they made a pregnancy remark and we are TERRIBLE liars. We told the world after our first appointment and ultrasound, just past 8 weeks, almost 9 weeks. I was sicker than a dog and I just couldn’t keep it a secret anymore.

We told a lot of people right away because we were excited. If something had gone wrong, and we did have a rocky start, then I would have shared anyways. I annouced on social media at 12 weeks. Waiting is a personal perference. We just chose to celebrate immediately with everyone we normally walk with.

I told a lot of people between week 5 and 13 mostly because I was so sick, missed almost a month of work, and it was pretty tough to hide. We announced on FB at week 13.

Mrs. Meowerson :  It’s the same way with me! A lot of people in my family told right away, but anyone I would tell right now are major blabbermouths, so…unless I want the whole world to find out, I can’t tell a soul beyond my husband.

I am not pregnant nor TTC (waiting until next year), but Fiance and I have already decided that we will probably tell my parents at around 8 weeks and his parents at 12 weeks. We want to make sure that everything is good and healthy with baby before spreading the news to our parents and we are much closer to my parents so we feel comfortable telling them before the 12 week mark. We also want some time to keep it our little secret for a couple months, even though it’ll probably be hard – I’m so bad with secrets! Who knows though, this could all change once I am actually pregnant!

To cover a suspicious lack of drinking you could check with your husband or someone else who knows what they are drinking for the night. Let’s say it’s red wine. When you get to the event you both order or accept a glass. When he’s finished you swap your full glass with his empty glass and then it will appear that you have had a glass but actually he drank it. Hard at a quiet dinner but good for weddings or cocktail parties 😀
