  • After the first trimester is finished. The risk of miscarriage is too high before then.

  • When you want to... With our first two we were about 7 or 8 weeks along when we went "public." With this one we waited but mostly because there wasn't anyone to tell... lol!

  • Depends. If you think people won't be happy for you, keep it a secret a while, if you're not sure, start with a close friend or sibling- have them go with you when breaking the news to others. It's your secret. Although if you're worried about a possible miscarraige, my sister waited til 3 months- she miscarried a few- but the chance of losing it dros 75% after the first trimester. Good Luck. :)

  • i told a few people when i first found out. work didnt know till i was farther along. it depends on who public is. family knew pretty much the same time i did. i couldnt hide that from them. but as always, after the daddy, my best friend was the first to know. she was the first to know with all my pregnancies
