  • I told everyone at 9 weeks because it was basically a rumor at that point anyways. haha but for my future pregnancies, I'm not going to tell anyone until I've passed the 3 month mark. I would have done that with my son as well if I had the chance. I'd hate to tell everyone I'm pregnant and then have to deal with telling everyone I had a miscarriage if, God forbid, that were to happen.

  • I told early with my first two pregnancies and all was fine but I have now had two miscarriages and I dont think I will ever announce early again after those. I am trying for a 3rd child and I wont be telling anyone until I make it through the first 12 weeks and my chances of miscarriage go way down.

  • I have always told my family right after it was confirmed by the doctor.

    Then told others a couple weeks laters.

    I will tell everyone about this one as soon as I have my ultra sound.

    I had a miscarriage in January and to me it is MUCH better to have support after such a devestating experience. I would never want to go through that alone.

  • With my first, it was right after the dr confirmed my pregnancy at about 5 weeks. With my second I waited until I was 8 weeks and had a big family gathering at my house where we announced it to everyone.
