When did you announce your pregnancy?

We are 12 weeks pregnant today. We dont see the doctor agan till Nov 5th. We will be at 14 weeks by then. I have had a normal pregnancy so far with no complications. I want to tell people but I guess I feel I need that next appointment. Any thoughts? When did you announce your happy news?

  • I told everyone right away! I think I was 8 weeks. I was too excited to hold it in. Plus I had people bugging me if I was pregnant all the time. Congrats by the way.

  • we are planning to tell our family before our appt, which will be around 10 weeks. we are going to tell family around 8 weeks. at this point, your risk of miscarriage is very low so if it were me i would go ahead and tell the world. but if you want to wait, that's fine too.

  • i waited a few days then calculated that i was like 3months, so i told my family and my boss (kinda important for my boss to know b/c of my job) and some people were listening and then told ALL of my co workers (when i wasnt ready to tell them) like everyone found out right away

  • With my 1st I was 15 weeks and with this one I told my cousin and best friend the day I found out which was the day I was supposed to start but got a positive HPT and told the rest of the family and my boss later that week. I was too excited to wait!

  • I was 6wks when we found out by HPT. So we told close friends and our parents. We saw my OB for our first appt when I was 9wks. After we found out everything looked good and seemed pretty "normal", we told the rest of our friends and family.

  • With our first we told everyone right away and I had a m/c (I was 11 weeks, had an appt at 10 weeks and they couldn't find a heart beat but said that was normal). With my second, we waited until after our first appt. and hearing a heart beat and then told (I was 11 weeks) With my third pregnancy we told everyone around 8 weeks because I was already breaking out the maternity clothes. With my fourth we were going to wait until our doctor's appt but the doctor's office kept changing it on me so we told everyone around 11 weeks as well.
