Only our parents and my brother know. When I experienced my first loss we had done the same thing and it was a great comfort to have them to lean on.
We won't be telling anyone else until we hit 2nd tri. Which also happens to be our 1st wedding anniversary so it will be nice to announce at this time.

I'm waiting for a blood test to tell our parents; we could never hide it from them for 12 weeks! We see both sets multiple times each week! We have 2 BFP's, but I'm apprehensive this time. We'll wait a little bit longer to share with others; at least until after HB US.

I'll probably tell my parents and siblings at 12 weeks. Everyone else will find out when I start showing.
I have only told one very close friend, because I HAD to tell someone or I'd burst. We will tell family at a family reunion on July 14th, so I'll be close to 9 weeks! I am so so bad at waiting, but it will be really nice to be able to tell all the family at once. DS will wear his Big Brother tshirt to our cookout! :)
We told family right away with DS, so this waiting thing is REALLY REALLY hard for me!
With my first, we told our parents at 6 weeks, siblings at 8 weeks after an ultrasound, and everyone else at the start of second tri. This time, we're hoping to hold off on telling family til 8 or 9 weeks, then everyone else at 13 weeks.
Part of me is dying to tell people, but another part of me loves having this secret that only DH and I know.
I think you should tell people who you would want them to know if there was a problem. The reason why we don't tell people, is just in case. However, you still need someone to talk to about the emotional upheaval. You should decide who would need to know if something went wrong, and those are the people that it would be appropriate to tell.
We told our parents and siblings already. We'll wait to tell other people until August.
