How long did you wait to tell people?

How long did you wait to tell people you were pregnant? With my first, we told people right away. We just found out we are pregnant with #2, and I'm not sure if I want to wait or tell people right away. Just wondering how long others waited!

  • I couldn't hold it in. I just made sure I told my family first then everyone else. Didn't want them to find out thru someone else and think I was hiding it.
    And Congrats!!

  • I'm glad to know I'm not the only person who couldn't wait!!! I made my husband call his mother from work and conference me in so we could tell her so that I could tell other friends and family members! Thanks ladies for your answers!!

  • We waited until 6 months because of an earlier miscarriage. And having family up in our business for 3 months will make me wait until 7 or 8 months next time!!!
