I got 2 digital BFP's today and have been getting positive FRER's for a few days now. I will be 5 weeks on Sunday. I told my best friend, my mom and my sister today. Is it too soon? I'm just so excited! My SO wants to wait til after our first ultrasound which is understandable, but I'm just way too excited.

I told friends and family at 5 weeks. I was really excited too! And knew that if, God forbid, I did have a miscarriage, I would want to tell my close friends and family and have their love and support.

I announced it on FB at about 10 weeks, after we had an ultrasound and I actually saw the baby.

It's just whatever you are comfortable with

I told my family and a few friends the day I got my bfp, waited to announce on Facebook until after I got my first ultrasound.
