How soon should I start telling people I am pregnant?

I have had previous miscarriages so I am alittle reserved about telling people.

  • As soon as you are comfortable. I know i plan to wait until the 2nd trimester. But apparently once they have detected a heart beat the chance of miscarriage drops down to 5% or something.

  • Whenever you feel comfortable. Usually after the 3 month/12 week mark or later. I never tell people (except for hubby) I'm pregnant at all until they see I'm showing and they ask. But then again, I have 4 kids.

  • We told everyone as soon as we found out with our first. We waited until 15 weeks with our second to tell everyone except my works since we had some issues. Our next we aren't going to tell anyone until I start showing, which for me is around 20-22 weeks.

  • I told everyone when I had my first ultrasound and saw the heartbeat.

  • We've chosen to tell select people at differnet times. I've had three previous miscarriages myself. We told people at our church, and the people we know that would keep us in prayer first. Now that we have officially made it into the second trimester we have been telling more and more people. So really it's all up to you and your SO.
