When did you tell your family and friends?

I'm not new to this pregnancy life, I have a 20 month old. My pregnancy with him was perfect. However, 4 months ago I miscarried, but before that I told everyone that I was pregnant as soon as I found out. telling then I lost the child was the hardest thing ever! Now that I am 5 weeks in, I was just wondering when I might tell them. I haven't had any complications this far, but then again I don't want to "jinx" myself either. I did tell my mother as she is my best friend, but other then that I haven't told many ppl. I hate this waiting period to see the doc for the first time. I just was reinsurance that this baby is ok, and its mother is just a worry wart.

i told everyone as soon as i got a positive home test. I'm now 22+2, with no complications so far. It just depends on when you feel comfortable telling people

I didn't tell people until 13 weeks. Some a little sooner. I know the fear of a loss is strong. Just hold tight. Babe will be OK.

Tell people when you feel ready. There is no right or wrong time. I told immediate family and close friends right after I found out but waited to tell coworkers and others until 11 weeks or longer.

I told parents immediately as well as my bff, but didnt share with the rest of the family til 8 weeks. Then Facebook posted it at about 11 weeks. I had gone through a miscarriage 2 months before this pregnancy. I'm now 29 weeks tomorrow.
