    We told our work colleagues too I wouldn't get too worried about "jinxing" it-it's more a case of keeping the news to a minimum "just in case" but I think your hubby will benefit from them knowing!

    as someone who had had a miscarriage i do NOT beleive in jinxing your pregnancy.

    It is sensible not to buy thousands of pounds worth of equiptment and decorate your nursery when your 4 weeks pregnant, as for telling people, its a personal choice.

    We have usually told people gradually up until my second trimester, and i was more selective who i told this time as i have experinced the negative side of the horrible things people say if you do miscarry. But telling people has no effect on if you have a healthy pregnancy or not.

    My in-laws knew before my parents, we told them at around 6 weeks. We had to tell our 3 children that week as youngest (6 yr old) dived on me so we had to tell him he had to be more careful.... This meant that the children could easily have said something infront of our families so we had to tell them.... We needan't have worried as our children kept the secret very well until we said they could tell (after a 9 week scan)

    The only problem I encountered was my brother who kicked off because he was last to know.... he wasn't at all but thats just how my brother is... an idiot :rofl:

    I don't believe in jinxing it by telling anyone early, everyone have known from a few weeks wit my 3 children and again this one. If I had jinxed my pregnancies my 3 wouldn't be here today :) Don't worry yourself about it!!
