When did you wait to tell ppl you were prego?

I lost 2 pregnancies before so I'm waiting a long time this time. At least 3 months or until I can't fit in my clothes anymore.

  • I told a couple of people right after I knew for sure, at about 5-6wks. Mom, aunt, roommates were there so they knew, and my best friend, and then the biological father I told about 2wks later... Waited until I was 12wks before I told the rest of the family. I miscarried as well 2yrs ago and was told Id never be able to carry a baby, if I got pregnant I would just miscarrying again... However, I told my mom and best friend cause I knew they would both keep me calm and positive. Mom told my aunt... she helped too. I am now 38wks and waiting on this little goober to come on out so I can meet him. :) Good luck, and stay positive!

  • I told mostly the immediate family right away I was 4 weeks pregnant when I found out now I'm 12 weeks and 4 days this is my second pregnancy and with my first I told everybody when I found out at 8 weeks exactly :-)

  • 3 MONTHS is good, i waited 3 months with my second, keeping the secret was sorta fun too.

  • Both times have been accidents for me so I waited a bit before telling anyone. I think with my first it was 3-4 months. With the second it was only a month because my first son's father snooped on my computer and blackmailed me into telling my family, hoping they would kick me out. Lol gotta love the dramaeye rolling
