Pregnancy Pregnancy

To tell or not to tell

When did you announce your pregnancy? Were you able to wait until 12weeks? How soon is too soon? It is so hard to keep this from everyone! My husband is going crazy too!

I've lost a couple of babies, and the first one I told people at about 5 weeks. It was so hard having people ask that the next time I got pregnant (resulting in a miscarriage), I decided not to tell anyone until I was into my second trimester. Thankfully I didn't. The third time I was pregnant, I made myself wait (with the exception of my boss - I couldn't do heavy lifting) until I was 13 weeks. It was SO hard, but I feel it's better to be safe. It's beyond hard to have to tell people that you've lost a baby while your still trying to cope with it.

This time I plan to do the same. Of course, a few people knew (i.e. - family & select close friends), but those were the people I wanted to know in case something happened (happens). :)

It really is up to you though! Good luck!

With my first three, we didn't really wait at all.  I'm 8 weeks with this one and have only told my husband and a couple close friends.  Our kids don't know, other family doesn't know, nor do more distant friends.  We'll probably announce around 12 weeks.
