But what about telling work? I am thinking around 12 weeks?

I was actually considering telling my direct supervisor next week. For some reason my RE has me coming in for weekly ultrasounds and I work an hour away from the office. So, each appointment is 3 hours away from work. I was considering letting him know that I'm very early and have a history of complications. Haven't decided if I will or not. This somewhat depends on whether they want another ultrasound next week or if we can wait until 7 weeks.

Savasanna i can understand why you would want to tell your work sooner cause it will be hard to explain needing all that time

Mrs. H i think that is a reasonable time to tell them

Yea, I think most people tell around the 12 week mark. I work relatively closely with my direct supervisor so I'd be more comfortable telling him earlier. I actually told him back in October when we were starting to work with our RE, for the same reason. If it weren't for that one thing, I'd wait until 12 weeks, too.

can I join please?
I'm preggo with No3 due 1st Sept 2017 - I'm always late so probably won't arrive until 14th haha! I'm feeling pretty damn rough tbh - so sick and nauseas and already had a migraine it's making me think this is
Talking of genders will anyone find out? I'll be staying on team always have done! Love the excitement and incentive to push and that final little surprise!!
I worry I'm getting carried away already I know so much can go wrong but I'm already excited and thinking is far ahead

I'm not going to "Facebook" announce until after my anatomy scan at 20/40. I'll tell my friends and family after 12/40. Only my husband and my best friend know.....it hard especially as so sick. Where I work it's difficult for people not to notice.... but I'll again let them know after the 12/40 scan.....exciting to share this journey with you girls

My first scan was booked today for feb 10. That's so far away!

We will find out gender at 20 weeks.

It's so hard not to get excited 😉

I was concerned about when to let the job know as well. I sit all day so I'm pretty sure I can work right up until the end. As for family and friends I think I want to wait until 12 weeks I need to be strong because I'm so excited it's kind of hard to hide

We'll definitely be finding out ASAP. I found it was great for bonding with my son. I loved being able to think of him by name, and get my clothing shopping done. My instinct was totally wrong, too, so I was glad to not have that surprise at birth. It only gives us one set of names to argue over, too . I'd find out now if I could.

I was able to have my first appointment and u/s at 8 weeks with my first two pregnancies but when I called on this one they said they like to wait 9-12! Who would want to wait 3 months?! I booked it the soonest I could. I hate the waiting game. There's another hospital pretty much the same distance away that will see you at 6 weeks but ive delivered my first two at this one and had a good experience so I'm just going to try to be patient.
