I'm on the side of early announcers. We told our families at 6 weeks (once I passed the timeframe of my previous loss). And announced on social media at 7w4d. By this point we had already had two beautiful ultrasounds and all looked well. My boss also knows, but waiting to tell coworker's on Halloween. I'm in the group of, if I miscarry, I want to have a support system around me, it's not a stigma, and I want to celebrate the life of the baby, no matter how short.
We don't share pregnancy on social media. We just share when our baby is born.
I am a loss mama (x2) so I am really guarded with sharing that I am pregnant. I told my closest girlfriends early on b/c I needed support. I told my boss in my 7th week b/c I was puking so much and have a lot of appts early on due to my loss history and other complicating factors, but he is sworn to secrecy until I am ready to share with other coworkers. My mom knows, I think we told her around 8 wks? My oldest child (6)asked me at 9 wks and I promised myself I would be truthful when she asked so I was. She told some people at school (to my chagrin), but I know she was just excited. She also told my FIL, one of my SIL, our nanny & our chiropractor. LOL. The rest of our families and friends don't know. I am not sure when we will tell them.

I've only told 2 of my friends. Oh and my online class. I have my first apt in 2 weeks at 12wks and will think about when to announce to my family then. Might do my side first and wait until we see my husbands side at thanksgiving. It's our 5th (husbands 7th) so not looking forward to the stupid comments. Not sure when I will on FB.
