  • I told people right away. MY feeling about it is that if something happened, then the people I knew could be there to support me if I needed it. I think it would be terribly lonely to deal with the loss of a pregnancy by myself.

  • it's a personal pref but some wait until 13 weeks. I waited to tell my employer until 16 weeks. I told close family and friends right away.

  • This is my 3rd and we are waiting for the end of the first trimester just so if something happens we don't have the pain of un-telling. On the other hand if at around 9 weeks you have an u/s that says you're all good I think telling everyone is fine.

  • The reason i asked is bc i want to let it out so bad!!! hahhaa. but at the same time i miscarried my first pregnancy at 5 weeks. so im kinda iffy on it.

    oh wth im gonna let it out! LOL

  • I told everyone like when i got an ultra sound, because i was paranoid about her being a competent pregnancy.. That was silly.. so i think like as soon as you find out because its such blessed news.:)

  • I was told to wait until my first ultrasound. I'm 5 weeks and I've told my dad and one friend. I have my first ultrasound in 2 weeks. Congrats on the pregnancy!

  • I told my family and close friends when I found out, but didn't let everyone else know until I was about 4 months.
