I told a close friend and my mum pretty much the day I found out. I'd had a mc the month before and they had both been a massive source of support for me going through that so I wanted them on board from the beginning again.

We started to tell close friends and family at 12 weeks after my scan. I'd had 2 scans before this though and felt pretty good about everything (which I never did with the pregnancy I mc). This one felt very different physically and emotionally, so I wasn't hesitant to tell anyone.

We announced it more widely to everyone probably around 13/14 weeks.

Mostly, I just wasn't in a hurry to tell most people. It was nice to have a few people close to me who knew who I could depend on if I needed them, but mostly if I'd had another mc, I didn't want to have to chase down everyone in the family to tell them what had happened. That worked for us.

Hmm, with our son we totally everyone not long after we found out. Same day.

Number two, I found out around 4 weeks and we told everyone the following week I was pregnant.

Our first pregnancy we lost at 18weeks and we waited a long time to even say anything about it. Within a months time we went from having everyone knowing and excited to finding out she had passed away.

With all 4 pregnancies (first two were miscarriages) I told my best friend and sisters pretty much the same day I got my BFPs. Told my parents and inlaws whenever we happened to speak to them, I think my mom found out last both times because I don't speak to her very often. Otherwise we never did an "announcement", everyone else just found out if/when we saw them or they heard from other people, saw a pic of me with a bump, etc.

With ds we told everyone after the 12 week scan (apart from my sil who is a Dr so I wanted her to know so I could ask advice etc!)

This pregnancy we were struggling to conceive so everyone knew we were seeing a specialist and about to start treatment, so when we found out we just told everyone straight away. By everyone I mean parents, in laws, sil and sister, my bff and a friend/neighbor who was the only person living nearby who could watch my ds for appointments etc. so both very different! This time Iím not announcing on Fb, will pm friends or theyíll find out other ways. I found fb so crushing when we were ttc, so I donít want to do that to others.

Family around five weeks and close friends as I had bleeds and sickness. Everyone else I was 12 weeks 2 days (after the scan) its good to share it early on if you feel unwell or down or simply leave key you want them to know. Obviously just limit it unless you want to shout from the rooftops lol
