    An email before would be strange and impersonal and coming just before your friend’s party would divert attention to you on that day whether you intended it or not. And it would be pointless to tell them not to say anything at the party and defeat the whole purpose of wanting to share. Just wait until after your friends baby celebration event. You are talking about the difference of days to a week. I don’t see the need before then and you will have plenty of opportunity afterwards. 

    I don’t think you have to wait three weeks for your husband to come home in order to tell your girlfriends.

    I’d probably text my friends a few days before the party with a photo of the ultrasound, like “guess what!!” I think it’s silly to have to wait until after the baby shower. But I definitely don’t think you should announce it there.

    Seems like you didn’t get the responses you wanted to. Unfortunately with these things it’s always best to err on the side of caution.
