    We put ours at 9weeks… I couldn’t hide it anymore. lol

    The only reason we waited was b/c we have a friend that have been ttc for quite awhile and I wanted to talk to her personally before making the announcement and her finding out first hand. It took about 3 weeks to get with her.

    Afterwards though we made the announcement to our Young Adults Group and I posted on fb and IG that evening. lol

    I just did at 10 1/2 weeks, we finally announced to our close family, and had a good ultrasound, so I was feeling ready.

    We told our families around 6 or 7 weeks and after our families knew then we told friends and it ended up on fb.

    I am not planning on saying anything until well after the 1st trimester. We might announce it in Christmas cards and when people start talking about it then we will acknowledge.

    My bff’s sister put it up at 4 weeks. That was crazy to me.

    I just announced mine the day before yesterday because it was my birthday. I posted a status that said “My hubby gave me a great birthday present…should  be here around May 15h!”

    when I posted it I was almost 10 weeks… we told all of our family at 5 weeks. So family and close friends had known for quite a while before we made it facebook official. If it wasnt my birthday, we probably would have waited until 12 or 13 weeks.

    I won’t be putting anything about it ever. My SIL did this and I appreciated that as I went through IF and I wouldn’t want to upset others I may be friends with who could be going through the same.

    We announced it on Facebook only after she was born.  But that’s just us…

    Not till after first trimester and dependent on when I start to show. I’m friends with co-workers and I want to hold off telling work as long as possible. Hence can’t do the FB thing till after telling work. I was planning on Halloween at which point I will be 14 weeks. But we’ll see if I’m showing yet. Not yet right now at 11 weeks but lots can happen in 3 weeks. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Other for facebook- we told a few people at 6 weeks, then at 10 weeks after we saw a heartbeat on the ultrasound we told facebook (and after we told the grandparents and great-grandparents, couldn’t have them find out from other family on facebook).

    I didn’t vote because I’m not KU yet, but we’ll wait until 12 or 20 weeks.

    I’ve had 3 friends in the last year put on Facebook as soon as they got BFP, 1 of which miscarried she she had to “take it back”. I do NOT want to be in that situation.

    Never. I dont see why it needs to be on facebook. In my opinion this kinda news should be told to people in person or atleast on the phone but not in a mass message on facebook.
