How far along were you before you told people (announced) you were pregnant?

Obviously, most people tell DH/SO really early on, but were you cautious and waited until you hit a certain week before telling people, or did you just tell everyone as soon as you found out?

  • The first time we told everyone around 9 weeks. But the next time I told around 12 weeks and then I had a miscarriage. After that I waited until it was obvious, like 5 months. Of course we told our parents.

  • I waited until my first dr's appointment. I kept having this weird fear that if I told anyone beforehand, that I would get to the dr and he would look at me like I was an idiot and tell me I wasnt pregnant..

  • It was very hard for me. We told everyone at 12 weeks. Then 2 days later I miscarried. After that, people I just knew a little, remote people that I didn't tell about the miscarriage kept saying things like "when are you due?" How do you feel?" That was the worst part. Having to tell so many people what happened. My next pregnancies I waited so that wouldn't happen again.

  • besides my husband and my parents, who found out by being sneaky and going through my mail, i didnt tell anyone else until 12 weeks... next time around i probably wont tell anyone but my hubby until i have the baby ;) (jk but i'll wait until people ask because i dont really have friends anymore)
