your family and friends you were expecting? Dh is, for some reason, having me stay quiet but I'm unsure how long I'm going to be able to stay quiet.

Some people wait till after 12wks or the first trimester because risk of miscarriage goes down a lot after you get to that point. I told right away but I didn't find out till I was 12 and 8wks along...

I was around 12-13wks this time. No reason really, I just wasn't ready to make the announcement!

DH wanted to tell his mom the day we found out... which was before my period even came. We ended up telling his mom only a couple days after. We found out about a week before my mom's 50th bday, which was also only a few days before Christmas, so we creatively told her as part of her birthday gift, and everyone else found out after.

Immediate family (mom, dad, MIL, FIL) was told when we got a positive because we knew in the event of a miscarriage, they would be supportive. That's how we judged who we told...if they would be a positive influence if we miscarried, we told them.

Otherwise, extended family and all our friends found out AFTER we had our first appt where we had an u/s making sure there was a heartbeat and everything. :)

 I have always waited until 12 or 13 weeks to tell anyone, other than Dh and my mom, because the very first time I got pregnant  I told EVERYONE asap and then I miscarried and it sucked to have to tell all those people what had happened.

We have the couple people that will know first but to tell our families (they live in other states) We are waiting till the U/S after 12 weeks. We are getting recordable cards recording the heartbeat and putting the pic in. We will put on facebook after we tell the family.

I am so sorry. I also miscarried early on 5 years ago. This time, I was beyond surprised, happy, and excited so I was spilling my news around 5 weeks and continued to pray everything will be okay. I am 32 weeks and we are fine.
