I was 11 weeks. I had an OB appointment that week so confirmed the heartbeat, and it was Thanksgiving weekend so I shared it with my family at the holiday celebrations. If not for the opportunity Thanksgiving provided, I probably would have waited another week or two.
I wasnt planning on telling anyone until at least 20 weeks bc I have a partial abruption, unfortunately a large one, and the doctor said it would be best to wait it out until I get my anatomy scan. BUT my husband has a big mouth and told everyone he knows yesterday (14 weeks).
I had a normal pregnancy the last time around and told family and friends at 12 weeks.
Well when i found out i was pregnant again after experiencing a missed miscarriage, i told myself i would wait to share til 13 weeks. Then i went in for an ultrasound at 6 weeks to check for the heartbeat and it was there. I was so happy that i had a living baby this time that i just couldn't
With my daughter i was 5 weeks with my second pregnancy I was 10 weeks an unfortunately had a missed miscarriage at 14 weeks I'm currently 23 weeks an told everyone immediately at 4 weeks ..its truly a personal choice an no ones wrong for what they choose ..
Close family at 12 weeks and 16 weeks for the rest of the world and Facebook. We got a few elderly in the family and don't want to tell them until everything is good with the U/S and heartbeat and all. Don't want to break their heart. Plus I'm a very private person and just in case something went wrong, I will prefer to deal with it in my own way. But all is well and I'm now 33 weeks ^_^
