  • We told our family and very close friends as soon as we found out. That was great the first time we got pregnant, but our last pregnancy miscarried. If I am fortunate enough to get pregnant again, we will wait until week 13.

  • After the first trimester when the threat of miscarriage is less. Sounds morbid but it's how we did it.

  • Personal choice. Think of it in terms of who would you want to have to tell if you had a miscarriage. We only told our parents when we first found out and then at 12 weeks, told everyone else. With our second we told our parents and siblings and then at 12 weeks told friends and extended family.

  • I told everyone at 10 weeks because that's when I found out, but I'm not sure when I'd tell everyone if I had found out earlier. A lot of women like to wait until 12 weeks because that's when the chance of miscarriage drops significantly.
