when did you tell?

How far along were you when you told your family? We are 7 or 8 weeks today and we still haven't said a word! I want to shout it from the roof but my husband wants to wait until we have our 1st ultrasound and find out our due date. I am dying to tell someone though I don't know if I can keep it in much longer!!!! LOL

  • With our daughter (now 2 years old) we told everyone straight away, with our last pregnancy (December '09) we told everyone at 7 weeks and then unfortunately we miscarried very soon after telling everyone.
    We just found out today that we are expecting again, we are at 5 weeks - and we won't be telling anyone until 10 weeks or later.

  • We told everyone with this pregnancy as soon as we found out! I was around 5 weeks :)

  • I told when I found out, which was at about 7 weeks. I'm 10 weeks today. I don't have a high chance of complications or miscarriage, so I didn't see a problem with not waiting until the first trimester was over.

  • Blabber mouth DH told everyone before the pee stick was dry. He was really happy. He has to tell everyone he meets that he has a pregnant wife even if it has nothing to do with the conversation.

  • ecodani - that's adorable!

    If I get pregnant, I don't plan on telling anyone till the 2nd trimester. I lost my last baby at 13wks & am still having to tell people that knew I was pregnant what happened (this happened June 09). Plus my baby cousin asks every once in a while why it's taking the baby so long to meet her. :/

    It just sucks 'cause I have family that thinks it's rude for me not to tell, but honestly they'll let it slip then eventually everyone we know will know. If something happens, I want to be able to tell who I want about it & no one else.

  • With my first, I was very young and in denial about the pregnancy, so I didn't tell anyone until I pretty much had to at 15 weeks.

    I am currently about 5 weeks pregnant. My husband and I aren't telling anyone until the end of the month (around 8 weeks).
