  • Congratulations if you are pregnant! I work in a high risk pregnancy and i think that you should wait unitl you are 12-13 weeks that is at your 1st trimester and by then you should be sure that the pregnancy is going well! best wishes :)

  • I would wait untill after your first dr. apt to confirm everything before i would tell family. If you are are a few days late already just wait untill your about 7 days then test again. Goodluck =]

  • I am horrible at keeping secrets. I pretty much told everyone as soon as we found out, with my first and with this one. No waiting here. I was just too excited not to tell. That being said, it's all a matter of personal opinion.

  • Its going to be really hard for me to keep it in and i'm going to want to scream it from the roof tops but i do agree just to make sure everything is okay me and the hubby need to keep it between us for a little while :)

  • i would wait. i told every one after 4 weeks and then ended up having a miscarriage. it would have been easier if no one knew.
