When did everyone announce their pregnancies or if you havent, when do you plan on telling everyone?

When did everyone announce their pregnancies/ or if you havent, when do you plan on telling everyone?

I told my sister, mum and dad, mother in law and father in law at 5 weeks! I also told my boss as I had an annual product launch for the company i work for which involved alota lifting so i had to somehow get out of it! I think i will tell everyone else after my 12 week scan although im pretty sure that MIL has told everyone she knows!! which i really hate but i know she's just mega excited about being a grandparent for the first time x

Hi jen,

I told every single person I knew right away, even the postman! I had waited so long just to be able to tell somebody I was pregnant and I thought that even if something went wrong with the pregnancy at least I would have experienced what it feels like to be able to tell everyone.

Thank the lord, so far everything is great and Im 12 wks on Sunday! woohoo

Me too, I rang DH at work 'cos I felt really he ought to be the first to know! Then I posted on here and texted everyone in my phonebook. Then I put my phone back in my bag, walked out of my room and told everyone at work! I met DH at MILs to pick up Mooch that evening and we told her then and phoned the few people who hadn't heard by then! I am rubbish at keeping secrets so there is no way on Gods Green Earth that I could've waited 12 weeks!

I wanted everyone to be excited for me and I also wanted everyone support if it went pear shaped, thankfully it hasn't.

Hi Jen,

After going through a couple of miscarriages, we decided not to tell anyone until 12 weeks. We are only just starting to tell people now and as DH is away, we haven't told his family yet - that will be Saturday!

It actually feels really weird telling people after having it as a secret for so long!

I told most people after 12 weeks, I managed to blag most people as they didnt know how long treatment goes on for.

I told my mother and a good friend on the day I got my BFP (official and confirmed BFP that is) at 4 weeks, came on here and told everyone a bit later - think it was at 5 weeks or so, not too sure. Let my extended family and the rest of my close friends know at 7 weeks and told work at 13 weeks after my first gynae appointment when I knew how often I would need to be off for my pregnancy checks.

I called Dh in the US and then we told our parents the day we got our BFP. We didn't tell anyone else until 12 weeks were up. I posted on here same day, of course.

I have told family and close friends and do not plan on telling anyone else until 12 weeks but I think everyone at work has guessed as I have a definite bump already.

I think that its near on impossible to not tell anyone at all. I had the whole of FZ waiting in my diary for the official result that morning, it was like something out of a film :snigger: a moment I'll never forget though x

I told my parents , in laws and 5 v close friends immediately as they all knew about the treatment and were waiting for a results phone call. Not planning on telling everyone else until after 12 week scan although there are a couple who know about the treatment but are a bit hazy as to dates who will probably get told after the 7 week scan as sooner or later they'll realise we should have completed the treatment by now!
I haven't told work but I've told them I have a bad back so I can get out of lifting. As I'm a vet there are a few hazards like X/Rays that so far I've blagged my way out of but as soon as I'm in an awkward position I'll have to tell in case I irradiate the baby.
Seeing as I haven't drunk a drop of alcohol since May most of our friends think I'm pregnant anyway and a wondering where the bump is!

I told everyone who would listen straight away 1st and 2nd time....had bleeding 2nd time so started to wish I hadn't told the world, but luckily all was well. Then had 3 m/c in a row but still told everyone close to me as soon as I got BFP as I figured I'd be telling them if didn't work out anyhow and at least they'd understand when you're not yourself for a while.

I told my best friend , my mum dad and in laws and sisters brothers etc but that was it... some of my friends did find out tho cos of my dopey Dh he got a bit over excited and wrote it on facebook luckily one of my friends rung me right away and i managed to take it off before too many people saw it , everyone else found out at 12 weeks and that worked ok for us we needed to be sure that everything was ok before we said anything after previous experiance when we told everyone and then sadly we lost baby and it was hard trying to explain then what had happened not an experiance i would ever like to repeat...

Good luck with whatever you choose to do...

I've told most people who knew we were having the treatment, and i think everyone at DH's work knows. I figured that they knew about the treatment so they were bound to figure it out sooner or later so might as well tell them. We are stressing that it is very early days and plan to tell other friends and extended family a little later when we know everything is ok.

Mind you rest of DH's family will probably guess in a few weeks when i'm not drinlking at MOL's birthday party:snigger:
