When r u telling?
Not til after the first trimester is over. Except my mum who already knows lol
I told my exMIL before I told anyone else at 6 weeks. Then told FOB Friend I had told didn't agree with me keeping bub we had a falling out as she wasn't supportive. I'm 13 weeks now. My mother brother &a few close friends know that's it. I won't be announcing on FB or anything like that this time around I did with my last before my 13 week scan & it broke me to have to explain I'd lost baby. Id say it's up to the individual when they're comfortable telling others.
First baby we told MIL and my mum early and wished we hadn't. We had a horrible pregnancy and I just didn't want to engage emotionally with MIL about it. The only reason we told her is because she is a mw and would always tell us about how she knew x,y or z were pregnant before they announced.
Baby 2 and 3 we waited till 12 weeks. I didn't care if she knew at least she had to keep quiet and not try and discuss it with me.
My mum was first to know. I was on the pill when I fell pregnant so it was a big surprise. I told her I was having funny cramps and other symptoms and she straight away knew I was pregnant and told me to go to the dr. My partner and I agreed to wait until after the 12 week ultrasound to tell everyone else. However he was at a family lunch without me one day and the topic of babies came up and people started nudging him asking when it was our turn to have one. He decided that was a good time to blurt out that we actually are expecting. I was only 7 weeks at the time. So I felt like I had to then tell my family as some people can't keep secrets. My partner also let it slip to our friends without telling me and well before I was 12 weeks. I was mad at the time but I know that it was all the excitement and it was killing him holding it in!
We didn't think much of it to be honest. Told work for safety, my sister knew first at like 5 weeks.
, Mil and my mum knew at about 7 weeks. We told FIL and other family about 8 weeks.. I'm not very good at keeping secrets plus if something happened this are the peopl i want around me..
We were going to tell our friends last night but didn't get a chance so will tell them next time but samething these are people i rely on mosg so if i need support they are the ones I would turn to.
We told family at 13-14 weeks and work/friends at about 20 weeks.
I have told my immediate family but not husbands side yet. We started telling everyone last pregnancy at around 8 weeks as my first scan was fine. Then at 9.5 weeks we lost the baby so it was more difficult having to tell people what happened. I won't be telling the rest of the family/friends until the second trimester after we have received clear nipt results.
