my fam knows generally that we will be starting to try next year, but we're leading people to believe it will be at the very end of the year - november, december - instead of July

I have one co-worker/really good friend who knows when we are starting, as she is starting around the same time

My family and friends know we are thinking about it, just don't know when... I want it to be a surprise!

I've told 3 close friends and thats it. He hasn't told anyone and we're not planning on telling anyone else until I am, don't want the pressure of being bugged every month

All my close friends and family knew that we were going to TCC after our wedding in June. There were a couple of well meaning friends who would ask me 'how we were getting on' every month and I would be honest and say that we hadn't been lucky that month. That meant that when it got to the month we did fall pregnant I was faced with lying (up to my 12week scan) or being honest and telling more people than perhaps we wanted to in the early days.

I was honest and close friends and family knew we were expecting from about 6 weeks. At 7 weeks I had an early scan due to bleeding which showed a strong heartbeat.

Despite this, I had a natural miscarriage at 11 weeks pregnant and it was comforting that I had a lot of support from friends and family.

Saying that, we are 'waiting to try' and I haven't had a period since my miscarriage yet and we're still not sure whether we're going to TCC straight away or leave it a few months but I will be telling friends and family either way that we wont be trying again until at least the summer so I'm not under any pressure.

My work friends know that we will be trying for a baby soon, two out of five know the actual dates when we are going to start trying, I think it's very hard to keep things away from my colleagues - I'm with them 80% of the time and I tend to tell them more than my actual best friends.

We won't be telling any of our immediate family, when we got engaged my brother in law and his now wife had been engaged for 4 years, as soon as my husband put a ring on my finger they said "we've been engaged longer they can't get married before us" so I don't bother telling family members anything because it's always a competion with them! Besides I don't want there to be any unnecessary pressure put on us.

Hahah I know that feeling!

I have told my two best friends and that is it. Would rather keep it to ourselves until we know for definite etc. It just seems nice to keep it fairly private for a little while.

I agree its harder to keep things from workfriends. When I fell pregnant my workfriends knew because I couldn't hide my tirednesss/nausea for 7.5hours a day! xxxx

I accidentally told a colleague a few days ago.

Now I am slightly worried that she will tell others

Regret!

I haven't told anyone cuz I'm still convincing DH

But when we know..we won't be telling anyone. We didn't with this baby either. They just ask too many questions and I can't handle saying "no, sorry, not this month"..its heartbreaking enough for me alone. That's just me tho!
