I would still tell your parents, but maybe hold off on a widespread annoucement.  I’m sure even at this time they’d love to know, and some good news could do wonders.

@SapphireSun:  I second that.  

See how things are going and if you have a good oportunity to tell them, and just them it couldn’t hurt…  as you said it could offer them a little sunshine on a sad day.

I think that you should go ahead and share it, especially if you get the chance to tell grandma.  I think that would be the greatest thing that you could share with her in what might be her final hours.  Sorry you are going through this and I will keep you all in our thoughts tonight.

Definitely tell your parents and they can tell grandma if you’re not able to be there–it will make her happy to know and good feelings are always good for the health.  It will also give your parents something good to focus on instead of being so worried.  I would hold off on a widespread announcement for now and see how grandma does for now.  Also possibly ask your parents for advice.

I can totally see why you’re torn but if I were you I would tell them, just your parents. My thinking is that there may be a lot of highly emotional times ahead and that can weigh heavily on people and not meaning to sound like I’m being unfair to your grandmother in any way but if you are in your first trimester the stress might be risky (I could be wrong).

I know that sounds awful, like I’m suggesting you put the baby’s need ahead of the family but really I’m just suggesting that your family has all the facts and can act accordingly

How sad 🙁 I’m sorry for your loss. As some of the other ladies have said, I would tell your parents if you’re able to get a quiet moment alone with them. I’m sure it won’t be the way you imagined telling them, but I think that it will ease their sorrow somewhat.
