  • I was about 5 weeks. I told my mother and she wasn't happy at all and she told my entire family before I even had a chance to wait.I told my dad and mil first though.

  • Dh immediately, but I waited til after my first Dr. appointment to tell anyone else. I kept worrying that I was going to get to the Dr. and he was going to tell me I wasn't pregnant and that the test was wrong. But I worried about everything. When he told me it was a boy, I was still scared he would come out a girl after I had gotten all this boy stuff.

  • I took the test, then went to the base clinic the next day for a test there to make sure. After that, I told my family and closest friends, then posted it on Facebook.

  • I started telling everyone I suspected I was pregnant before I even had a test done. :-)

  • We couldn't hold it in! I told my boss the day we found out. We told our parents then, too. We had told them we were trying (because we hadn't been together for very long, and we wanted to make it clear it wouldn't be an accident when we got pregnant).

  • i waited till i was past my first trimester to make sure i wasnt going to miss carry it would have killed me to tell everyone when i found out and to come back and tell every one i lost baby

  • Due to the chances of miscarriage, everyone says after 3 months. Which is when most of them occur. I told everyone for the first two, then with this last one, we told everyone and lost the baby at 10 weeks. No I wish I had waited, there is nothing like having to go back and tell everyone the baby is gone, or run into someone and have them ask you how the pregnancy is going? So from now waiting. Sorry dont mean to be a downer, buts its true life....
