Telling family

Hey everyone,

I just found out this morning (after a year of trying) that I'm pregnant! Yay! Im between 4-5 weeks.  I am still worried about miscarrying, but I want to share the news so much!  I know there is a chance of miscarriage all along the pregnancy, but it more common early on - i have heard two land mark dates - 12 weeks and 20 weeks - any tips on how long to wait before spilling the news? When are you planning on shareing?

    We told my parents and DH's parents on Mother's Day. I had only found out a few days prior, but I thought it was perfect timing to tell them! My first ob appointment is tomorrow and I plan to tell my brother and SIL tomorrow night. I will probaby tell my very close friends next week. Everyone else after 1st trimester

    I told my mom, older sister, and best friend right away, but we're waiting to tell everyone else until our appointment in June, when I'll be almost 11 weeks.  You should tell when you feel comfortable.

    I told my mom and brother right away.  Then told the rest of the family at Mother's Day. 

    I also told a few friends I work with so it got around work, but that's ok.

    We told family and close friends at 6 weeks on Mother's day. We were going to wait to tell co-workers, but I started getting really bad morning sickness, so I decided to tell my co-workers at week 7. I probably won't make it super public till we hit about week 12 or 14.

    We told all of our immediate family the day after we found out (about 4 1/2 weeks) but aren't saying anything to after our first appt at 10 weeks.  I can't wait!  We did tell a few close friends last week but they noticed bc I wasn't drinking anymore :)  Plus I would want those ppl there if a miscarry happens.

    It's really individual.  We told our immediate family at 5 weeks.  We would share any devastating news with them too.  We won't tell most other people until 12 weeks.

    Or first pregnancy we told everyone right away.  DH made a FB announcement on FB when I was about 10 weeks, I wasn't happy, but dr. kept saying everything was fine.  With in a few days, we found out we lost it at 8 weeks.  This time we told our parents and a few close friends right away.  Slowly we trickled out the news, and just told extended family this last weekend.  Do it when you are comfortable....
