I only told my best friend straight away and didn't tell my family until after I see the heart beat which was 9 weeks then everyone else was 12 weeks.
I've only told 2 of my best friends with my 2nd and as its almost definitely a miscarriage I am glad I can get support from someone. But I wouldn't want everyone knowing and having to deal with others.

We're waiting till 12 weeks to tell everyone, to make sure everything is ok and that way our parents can just be excited about being grandparents!
Definitely a personal choice though!

I thought about waiting, but in that moment of seeing those 2 lines and then seeing the 'pregnancy' result on the digi, we had to tell our families and ask them not to tell anyone else until we were ready.

As some PP have said....
I tell those early on who I would reach to for support if I suffered a loss.
Anyone who I would not share a loss with I wait to tell till later on.
We just told my family today as they were over for lunch. I am not quite 6 weeks.
We asked DS who's almost 2 (in front of them), "Have you told everyone your news?" They all asked him 'what's your news?' And I said "DS is going to be a big brother!"
Then everyone got all excited! ☺
