When did you tell people?

How far along were you when you told people that you were pregnant? We told the whole world the day we got a positive test. But now I'm hearing that a lot of people dont say anything until they are farther along? What did you do?

  • I found out at 4 weeks and pretty much told everyone by the time I was 6 weeks. I worried about mc-ing after telling everyone, but I can't keep a secret. Plus people would wonder why I wasn't playing hockey and not drinking ...

  • With my first-it was right away. With my second-right away-then I mc'd. So when I got pregnant for the 3rd time I was around 14 weeks.

  • We didn't tell until I was 10 wks. Then we only told our immediate family (parents and siblings). We told everyone else after the first ultrasound at 12 wks, when we heard a heartbeat. My OB at the time (I"ve since changed) sort of scared us by saying "Well, at this point you still have such and such a chance of miscarrying, so I wouldn't say anything." IT's all up to you, but I am happy we waited b/c I would have hated to go back and tell people that I wasn't pregnant anymore if I had miscarried. Tell your closest friends or relatives first and then wait to broadcast it to the world.

  • I only told my closest friends when I found out I was pregnant with my second one, then I miscarried a week later.

    With my first, I didn't tell anyone til I was 4 months.

  • I waited till I had my first ultrasound and knew everything was okay. I only did that because she was unexpected and I had radiation five months before I conceived.

  • As soon as we found out! There was no way we could hold it back!

  • We tell everyone right away. The only person we ever delay telling is my father in law. He isn't exactly supportive of us having children and just gives us a hard time.

  • With all 4 of mine I told people right away. Well, with #2 I did wait a few eeks to tell my dad b/c he wasn't too thriled when he found out about number one. But has been overjoyed ever since my first.
