When To Tell People

We just found out we are expecting (I'm almost 5 weeks) when should we start announcing that we're pregnant? I know this is the riskiest part as far as miscarrying goes, but we're so so excited and I don't have a history of miscarrying. (we've only been pregnant one other time and had a healthy baby boy)

  • I was pregnant once perfectly healthy everything went perfect. The next 3 pregnancies were miscarriages then I got my daughter.
    I personally would wait at least til 12 weeks

  • Good question,I thought of a cool way to tell my family members fairly soon (by about 5-7 weeks) for all three of mine, they were all healthy, I'm pregnant with number four & waiting a little longer just for fun while I plan the next cool way to tell them haha. If you want to wait untill your out of the easier miscarriage part of pregnancy wait untill 12 weeks or so (they happen less often then) but I don't see anything wrong with telling them now, they might even be a good support if for some reason anything did happn (♫knock on wood♫) and I always find it so exciting to tell my loved ones♥ Good luck God bless♥
