We told family the day we found out and waited till 6 weeks to tell everyone else. We wanted to hear the heartbeats before telling people (and find out if it was twins or not).

I like the idea of people knowing because if something does go wrong there are people there that can be a support group for you. I can't imagine keeping it to myself and not telling, i would be bursting...lol

nothing can determine whether or not something will go wrong honey! its up to you and when you feel ready. some people dont like to tell until they've had their scan, so they know everything is ok. we've told our close family and friends, but we arent going 'public' until we have the scan. besides, its nice to know that (god forbid) if the worst should happen, i'll have a good support network. it really is up to you entirely, there is no wrong or right

Well we wanted to wait til 12 weeks and we'd had the scan as we'd been trying for 4 1/2 years before conceiving and this is our first pregnancy. But I am also at more risk of having a mc because of a medical condition. But DH's mum knew some of the stuff we'd been through so we told her we were pregnant and DH's sister was there (she's 15) so we had to tell his dad and they were both excited and it got out all over Facebook within like an hour. This was at 6 weeks. We'd told my parents as my mum and dad have been there for us every step of the way. Whew that long, sorry xxx

If you want to tell people, then do. Honestly, there is never any guarantee, so enjoy it all and do what feels right for you. I told all my close family and friends very early- I'm only waiting till a bit later for work and everyone else! lol.

I appreciate all the support and love I've gotten from them all...

I think it's super shitty that some of y'alls family members would go and blurt stuff on Facebook, that is just incredibly tacky and rude...and shows a lack of common sense. Most people I know, know better than to do something like that. Sorry, just my 2 cents.

My first pregnancy ended in a miscarriage and while we didn't tell anyone when we were pregnant, I told my family and DH's family when we miscarried. They were such wonderful love and support for us.

Now I'm pregnant again, and I'm figuring we might as well tell them because if something went wrong, we'd tell them again.
