  • This made me laugh. My dh said, let's not tell anybody right away, then came home from work and told me he told everyone he worked with. King of restraint!

  • I'm 5 1/2 weeks and we told our families right away, I told my husband I want to wait until our first ultrasound on the 23rd to hear the heart beat to tell everyone else, he of course did not listen and has told his entire company he works for and so many of our friends. I'm stressing over it now and think I should just tell everyone! I'm so nervous about miscarriage however and really think I should wait, but the stress is too much! Any advise?

  • With my first pregnancy, we told everyone as soon as we out. I was about 4 weeks then. I miscarried a week later. My second pregnancy I waited until I was 8 weeks and had been to see my ob.
