    We (mostly!) waited until 12 weeks. I told my partner I didn't want to share the news beforehand, though he caved and told many of his friends/family before then. We lost our daughter at 38+2. Since then, I believe people should announce their happy news from whenever they are happy to do so. If I am lucky enough to have a pregnancy in the future, I'm not sure whether I will scream it from the rooftop after the first POAS, or whether I will wait for as long as possible to share the news. Either way, announce it when you like or feel comfrtable and bugger anyone else for their thoughts/opinions!

    I wanted to wait with DD but I was so sick with morning sickness that I had to tell people, there was no other explanation for me being so unwell and I didn't want them to think I was terminally ill.

    I told family about DS at around 6 or 8 weeks I think but didn't tell friends till I was 17 weeks and I was 20 weeks or so before I publicly announced it.

    In the early stages I was dying to blab but as time went on I rather enjoyed my little secret hence, telling everyone so late! I never knew how secretive I could be until I fell pregnant!

    We didn't tell anyone about DS (except my boss) until 26 weeks. Initially we were waiting til after the 12 week mark, then we just wanted to wait until we felt "safe" and then some big family events were planned and we thought "wouldn't it be great to surprise everyone by showing up with a BIG pregnant belly". All the reactions we got were priceless. And very positive. My MIL actually said she liked that she didn't have to wait as long to meet her grandchild. I'm 12+5 today and have my NT scan on Monday. My husband and I were going to talk about how and when to announce after that, but the other night he said "Christmas is not that far away..." so we might just see if we can pull off another surprise.

    Well I spilled the beans with couple of close friends. And tommorrow I m seeing my parents and sisters after 2 months of them holidaying so I ll let ds who is 3 tell them. I feel there is never a safe period when pregnant and I would announce to everyone as soon as found out bit dh prefers to wait until 12 w. So its only close family and friends at rhis stage and in17 days I have a check up and will be announcing publicly after it.
