N14 mommy to be
My favorites: husband, chocolate.
The first time I was pregnant I wanted to wait to see the heartbeat, but DH was SOOO excited he ended up telling the entire family immediately. 48hrs later I miscarried, and I was so upset/emotional. I made him be the one to go "un-tell" everyone.
When we got pregnant with DD 6 months later...we waited until we had seen the heartbeat to tell our immediate families, and didn't "go public" until 14weeks (after we had gotten results from the NT scan)
I waited at work until almost 16 weeks because it was the end of the year/annual review time. I wanted to have my review prior to telling my boss that I would be going on maternity leave the following year for 4 months.
Our immediate family, close friends, and a few coworkers know about our IVF cycle. If it is successful, we will probably tell them right away. Everyone else will have to wait until the 1st tri is over.

I told everyone when I found out. I'm not really a superstitious person.
Not long enough. I agree with only telling those who will support you through a loss, and also won't share your news without consent. Which is why MIL found out after the first trimester after my first loss.
