  • if your worried about a miscarriage most women i think wait till they are 12 wks.

    i'll be 10 wks saturday and i'm just now getting to telling a few people but i have no plans at all on telling everyone.

  • I waited three months, my SIL waited four months because she had a miscarriage before. But can tell any time you want.

  • Aw, its so hard to wait isn't it? The first time I was pregnant, i told everyone right away.....and then I miscarried. It was so hard to go back & tell everyone what happened. The second time I was pregnant, I told close family & friends right away & waited to tell the rest of the world until I was through my first trimester. I'm pregnant again now & just finished my first trimester, so its out now...but I did it like I did my 2nd pregnancy. Do what feels right to you, honey! And congrats!!! So exciting!!

  • We told close family and friends as soon as we knew which was at 8wks. I had a previous miscarriage and we told ppl when we knew also, Im glad we did as when the miscarriage happened it was nice to have the support of family and friends at that time. Obviously not wishing that on you just saying sometimes letting ppl knw early you get more support even if things are going great. Congrats :)
