I am currently 10+3 weeks. I told my close friends not even my family know yet, I have decided after the nachal ultrasound which isn't untill i will be 13+1 weeks but only family (my kids), Then around 20 weeks I will tell everyone else.
We all have our own opinons but I think the best time when your comfortable to and when you feel it's the right time.

How far are you?

Quoting Millicent Elizabeth':" when is a good time to start telling people that you're pregnant,"

whenever you want. If you think you don't want to have to tell them you miscarried if something bad happens....then wait until after the first trimester.

I wanted the support so I've always told my nearest and dearest straight away - if I miscarry, I want their shoulders to cry on - but I've waited longer to tell work. Heck, this time I'm not expecting much support from the inlaws so I'm considering not telling them until about a month before my due date :O

I didn't tell anyone I was pregnant with DS until I was in the second trimester.
I left a subtle hint when I was pregnant before and had lost it.
Guess I feel like I jinx myself when everyone knows.

I told very close friends and family at about 6 weeks but only just announced to everyone at 12. I got a bit too excited :lol:

i told as soon as i found out but a smart thing to do is at least wait until 8 weeks thats when your risk of miscarriage goes down some

I was the last one to know. When I told one person because I had to let my Chain of Command know She told me that everyone already knew lol! So with me I never had to announce it.

I'm going to tell my family and hub is going to tell his family when we find out the sex. I told my close friends already once I got the positive. Too exciting to not say!
