Did you wait until the second trimester?

I am wondering how many of you chose to wait until the second trimester to tell you loved ones about the new miracle. Who did you tell first? I was pretty close to the second trimester but only because I didn't find out until I was 11 weeks. I told my parents first and then just continued calling until everyone knew lol.

 Nope, we told everyone when I got the positive pregnancy test with this pregnancy. Its our last baby so we wanted to share it as soon as we found out.

NO I told a few people as soon as I took hpt. But waited to tell the rest until I got it confirmed by the dr.

No I think we waited a couple weeks. I told my sister, and one of my friends right away though.

well i found out i was pregnant at 4 weeks and told my mom at 6 weeks because i was only 17. i told my sister and brother around 7 weeks but waited to tell my dad and grandma around 13 weeks. i never told the rest of the family, it just kinda came out when i started getting big lol. we never made a formal announcement or anything.

Haha no I was on the phone within minutes of my positive test. For my first DD I waited to tell my mom because I wanted to do it in person, my hubby and Bestie were the first two to find out. Then with my second I couldn't hold it in and I called my mom right away and actually told my Bestie in person.

 nope.  i told my parents right away every time.  i was told, after my first miscarriage, that it would help NOT to tell everyone quite so early but after thinking about it, i decided that i'd rather them know so they would be there for me if i lost the baby rather than just pretend it didn't happen, kwim?

The first time we didn't wait - didn't realize most people waited.  The second time we told everyone early and then lost the baby at about 7 weeks.  That was hard.  With this one, we did wait.  It was more for ourselves than for anyone.
