When did you tell everyone that you are pregnant?

I am 6 weeks and 2 days. I am thinking about waiting till mother's day to tell my extended family. Right now, my brothers, mom and grandma know (and dh of course) but the rest of my extended family it still in the dark.

  • I waited until my third month to tell anyone.. I wanted my good news to be fore sure and not risk telling everyone only to have to then announce a miscarriage (which i am at high risk for).

  • When I found out, and after I told my husband. Well except with my daughter. I was out of state when I found out I was preggers with her, so my BFF and my sis knew before my hub did lol

  • I would wait until three months. I did that with my children because you never know if you can have a miscarriage. But since Mother's Day is so close I can see how you'd be excited to reveal it. Or you can just have a party for your inner circle.

  • Well since I've had a miscarriage previously, I waited until I was 13 weeks so I could be almost positive it'd be a good pregnancy.

  • My s/o wanted to wait until after the 1st trimester in case of the m word cause it happened last time and i told my sister when i knew i was because stuff that made me gag never made me before and she didn't believe me saying it was to soon to know but i was actually farther along turned out. And my brother after the 1st trimester. O family knew b4 my brother and after my sister.

  • I told everyone right away, with all three pregnancies. I never believed in waiting until 3 months to tell people, because the way I looked at it is.... if something happened, I would need the support... I couldnt deal with it on my own.

  • The first time I couldn't wait. I told at 8 weeks. The second time I told at 12 weeks, then I had a miscarriage. After that I waited until 5 months. Of course I told my parents and sisters, but that is it.
