  • We told everyone right away. Six weeks into my pregnancy. We were so excited we couldn't wait.

  • I told people when I was 6 weeks along. That is when I found out. I had suffered a miscarriage three years before that, but that did not scare me into waiting to tell people. I was so excited I could not wait. I do not regret not waiting.

  • With each of my kids was different timing. I remember telling people about my last pregnancy way too soon because I found out right away. That only made the pregnancy seem longer!

  • I told most people as soon as i found out. I dont regret it at all. I kind of wish i would have found a cute way to tell DH, but it's not that big of a deal!

  • My first two we told everyone right away. The next two the same but we lost both. This one, we waited until I was 12 weeks because we didn't want to jinx it, except for my parents and sister who we told right away!

  • For one reason or another everyone fgound out early. I wish we had been able to keep it quiet longer. I got sick of DH's family stikcing their nose in the entire pregnancy and asking tons of inappropriate questions.

  • I told the people closest to me the DAY I found out then everyone else gradually found out after that. The more important the sooner they knew lol.
