Don't feel guilty. I think it's normal to wait until 12 weeks to tell. Not so sure about sending the scan picture as a surprise though- you often can't see much on those photos anyway, but also is he sure about her reaction? Will it be a happy surprise, or a shock to her?

is anyone else even remotely likely to let the secret out??

If yes i would tell her as she would be hurt given she loves ds.

If there's the slightest chance that she'll find out from someone else then I'd tell her. It's one thing to hang on until 12 weeks but when loads of people know there's no point keeping it from your dsd. I'm sure it would upset her/piss her off if she found out that she wasn't one of the first to know.

IMHO. smile

Congratulations btw.

If I was in your shoes I'd tell her.

Tell her. Tell her today. But tell her you are not telling "others" until after the scan at 12 weeks.

I wouldn't tell her until you have had the scan....

And if she's 15, does she want a scan pic as a surprise? I think I would have been "grossed out" at that age! grin

I think she's old enough at this stage to be told before the scan. And she should get priority over other people. I know when my niece's Dad's dp is pg, my niece is usually the first they tell. And it does make her feel involved.
