How far along were you when you let your family know you were expecting? Did you wait longer to tell friends?

  • I told everyone when I was around 10 weeks. I had a couple weeks of keeping it to myself.

  • We told our family at around 5 weeks because we are not very good at keeping secrets. We told everyone else after 10 weeks when the dr. could hear the heartbeat with the doppler. After that point, chance of miscarraige is much smaller.

  • I'm not good at keeping secrets so I told my family right away. I told my friends soon after. I worked as a casemanager with the mentally ill when I was pregnant with my son, and I didn't tell any of my clients until I was starting to show - but I did tell my coworkers and other professionals I worked with as a safety measure.

  • We told family the night we found out, and we told our friends a few days later. (It was New Year's Eve, and if I wasn't drinking everyone would have figured it out anyway! lol)

  • My fiance told his parents when I was about 4 months along and I told my sister, who told my mom, when I was about 4 1/2 months along.

  • I can't keep secrets. As soon as I find out everyone knows. I'm just so excited when it happens.

  • I told my best friends soon as a found out then I told my family at 9.5 weeks when the heartbeat was heard and doc said it was fine to tell then and told the rest of my friends at 11 weeks. My DF told his family until I was 11 weeks and plans on telling his friends when I am 12 weeks.

    (I'm a little over 11 weeks now) yay!

  • As soon as I took the test, but then the doc's pee test said i wasn't so I waited to tell everyone I probably wasn't until I got the blood test and then the blood test confirmed it. I dont see why you shouldn't even if things dont work out, they are people who are there to help either way.
