We are out of the bag. We told right after the first ultrasound at 8-9 weeks. We figure we want to celebrate it at every stage no matter what God decides to do.

We'll be waiting until after 12 week scan . A close friend knows as I needed to ask if she could take me to hospital for the scan. Another so called friend knows but his reaction reinforced why I wasn't saying anything just yet. The reactions from my family won't be good ones

Why won't it be good? Babies are a blessing and they should know that. Hope it all goes well.

well its my first pregnancy and i got so excited i couldnt hold it in and i originally planned on letting everyone know after at least the second month and even my boyfriend was adamant about waiting to announce but 1. i wanted my mom to know so she can help assist me with certain things since i still live with my parents and go to school. 2. i wanted my boss to know so i wouldnt be assigned to do alot of lifting and i wanted to move to a different department such as clothing which is alot easier on my body.

i ended up telling everyone by 5 weeks but my parents knew at 4 weeks. i announced it publicly shortly after and every single person, especially my boyfriend's side of the family was extremely elated for us. even people i didnt know was saying "oh we're gonna be aunts and uncles!" it was fun i loved that they supported me so much, more than i could ever ask for. people at work are happy for us and are giving me easier work loads. it was also a lucky time as i got a half dollar raise as well as my boyfriend(we work at the same place). it should help me out alot and im glad i didnt wait to tell them for the sake of the lifting but my doctor appointments are very positive so im not worrying about anything i shouldnt as they told me to not ever worry about it.

My family are a very odd bunch to be honest. I'm the only person who's gone on to have more than 3 children and they all thought I was mad having a fourth, wouldn't be able to cope etc etc. I know it'll be a repeat of that again and I can't be bothered with it all - they're never happy for me and my OH and like to pick faults when they can. The women in my family aren't very maternal so I'm the odd one out kind of thing. X

We ended up announcing to family after our scan at 10 weeks. We ordered pregnancy announcement cards with a copy of the ultrasound, which we then shipped off to family to open for the big reveal... which they ended up getting around 11 weeks.

Now that I'm 12 weeks, I'm pretty much sharing freely. I probably won't do a big Facebook announcement until I get the gender scan, though.

I don't announce i just let myself grow a giant stomache and let them figure it out on their own.

But I keep it very private until 12 weeks. I'm a very private pers9n and enduring a miscarriage and have people aware of that is my worst nightmare.

I will have a confirmation visit on Friday. I will be 5 weeks. Im pretty positve I'm going to go ahead and tell my boss and maybe the person who I share an office with, for my sanity. Ive already told my three best friends and my mom knows I has a faint positve at 6dpo but there were negatives before the next positve 4 days later so she doesnt know!

As far a Facebook, we have a daughter so we will probably do some cute picture announcement after my boss knows. Im friends with a few coworkers and once they find out on Facebook I know it will be out of the bag at work!

Its all about what youre comfortable with.I dont remember when we told with our first honestly. I waited until almost 13 weeks with my first, but only because I was timid to tell my family at first because I wasn't married yet. But my dad was so happy he cried!

When you are both ready. There is no right or wrong time Congratulations! Many people wait for 12 weeks because of the risk of miscarriage but there is no safe zone in pregnancy or after so I personally don't believe in waiting for that reason. I however am waiting for another!!
