When did you chose to tell people you were pregnant


This is just out of curiosity really, and for something for me to do until my tea is ready

Given no influence by your OH, when would YOU ideally chose to tell people you were pregnant?

Me - I have chosen the 12 week scan, and OH agrees, but it's so hard not to blab to someone

I'm doing my best to hold out until 12 weeks... already very hard to wait. So far only DH knows, people on this lovely board and random strangers who I'll never see again... like the lady in the bookstore when I bought "What to Expect..."

I messed the poll up it should have been multi choice

Can a mod edit it? How do I do that?

It can't be edited to add multi-choice so I'm afraid you will need to create a new poll.

Well I have told my mum and a few of my friends so far. It is difficult for me actually as I will be in Florida when I am 12 weeks and won't be back until I'm 13 weeks so likely won't get my scan until then, so in really I need to hold out even longer. I haven't told anyone else in my family and would love to be able to but am stressing out big time and feel it is best to wait. I do have an early scan when I will be 7+4 so depending on that I may tell a few more people.

As soon as i got my BFP so i was about 3 weeks

We had been trying for 27 months & been through alot so i just wanted to shout it out to the world "ie the world of FB"

I am aware that things could go wrong.. Every week thougth i get people asking me where i am any new whats next etc.. It will be nice to have people to fall back on if things go wrong

We haven;t told anyone yet and are going to try not to until we get past week 16 this time - after losing Isabella we don't want to do that again. We told everyone after our scan was fine last time and then had to tell them all when we lost her.

This is the first time I have ever kept it from my Mum.
