With our first we waited until 11 weeks to tell our families. But this time, since weíve suffered two losses, weíre waiting a lot longer.

We are so close to our families i know we couldnt have kept it a secret so we have already told my two best friends, my mum and my in laws. I feel that if anything were to go wrong we would want their support so it felt right to tell them.

I'm planing on telling on Easter. It will be right after my 8 week scan. We live far away from my family and are visiting them then so it will be great opportunity.

With my first we told about 8 weeks, we had had a previous MC which obviously family then knew about, so we felt like telling them then was ok as theyíd know even if something bad happened - does that make sense?

With my second it was about 9 weeks

Think we will tell my parents this weekend (Iíll be 7+4) and maybe my siblings too, as Iím already showing a lot with no3 so canít really hide it any longer!

I actually tell my best friends as soon as I find out, but we donít tell anyone else until much later- usually until they ask when they see me

Glad itís not just me!! I do get massive, even though neither of my kids has been huge, I certainly am!! With my second I was asked by a child (im a teacher) at 9 weeks if I was pregnant! And my daughter said the other day (6+6) ďlook at your big tummy!Ē

Iíll be a beach ball by week 15, Lord only knows what Iíll be like by week 40! (Or 42 since mine are always late....)

I looked back on some belly pics from DD and DS and was shocked by how big I actually was during 3rd tri! Here's to hoping I'm not that big this time

I've noticed my jeans feeling snug just around where the button sits... definitely 90% bloat.. but my stomach has gone from flat fat to round fat
