  • I was one week pregnant when I found out, and I was too scared to tell anyone apart from DH (as it wasn't planned), so I was about 4 weeks gone before telling my family.

  • I told my husband the second I found out. Then, we told our family and friends at about 10 weeks or so.

  • I didn't realize I was pregnant until I was almost 10 weeks out! DH was with me so I didn't need to tell him. I called my parents that afternoon. We didn't tell anyone else, though for several weeks and even then only my MIL and my brother. Later it became obvious, though....LOL!

  • we are doing IVF towards the end of the year, its very scary to think about but ill be on medication to make sure my uterus lining stays thick enough till 11 weeks so ill probably tell people around 13 or 14 weeks to see how i do once i come off the medication, after that we shoudl be out of the woods and the chance of miscarring greatly decreases so thats when we will tell. im just prying morning sickness doesnt give me away hahah

  • We tell everyone almost right away. If I were to miscarry I have found I will need their support so I might as well tell them right away.

  • 5 weeks now I kinda wish I waited because it seems like a long wait to find the sex and so on so I keep getting a lot of questions from family. But my MIL has been awesome and has even done some house work for me during my tired times
