Re: when is it a good time to tell....

  • If they're people who would be supportive if something went wrong, you can tell them whenever. For people who don't need to know right away (distant relatives, co-workers, etc.), make the decision on a case-by-case basis. There is no real "rule".

    GL and congrats!

  • We told DH's parents the same day we got the BFP and my parents a few days later. We waited until I was almost in my 2nd tri to tell grandparents just in case something happened. Everyone does things differently. My SIL said she would have waited until 2nd tri to say anything, but we wanted to right away. There is no right or wrong way of doing it.
