I waited until the start of my second trimester. So at 13 weeks.

With my first I waited till we hit 3 months but my family were very upset that I did not tell them earlier so this time it was a month for family and 3 months before I went public with everyone else.
I regret caving to my families demands and would wait a little longer next time as I spent the first few months really anxious about anything going wrong. So I'd say do what ever you want!

I told my step mum and dad straight away as I would tell them even if things didn't go to plan. I told my brother, sister and mum when I was around 14 weeks x

We told everyone with our first the moment we found out (2 years of trying excitement) but it was hard to tell people when we miscarried.
With our now almost 2 year old we told people we would want with us if we lost if right away and made everyone else wait till 10ish weeek.
With our current one we made everyone wait (besides my  best friend) till our first 16 weeks  besides immediate family who was told at 10 weeks again.

I informed 2 friends at around 6 weeks. My one friend is also pregnant I suspect and it is obvious but she was being hush hush hush about hers. Find it corny actually saying she is yet to go Doctor to draw blood as it was too early to diagnose.

Then I informed my mother-in-law  around 7 weeks... because I couldn't stand some food at her birthday party.

Then obviously my live-in nanny and one of my cousins in law ( we are neighbours anne somewhat close) at around 7 weeks

Oh and

And cousin in law - half half sister who asked - if I was pregnant. I didn't knew whether to deny my child's existence or just say I am yet to verify.

Oh and my sister around the same time I confirmed with the Doctor at 6 weeks.

So I told 6 people. Well 1 I told her I am yet to verify with the Doctor

By the way this is our 3rd child in waiting. I thank God I carried safely in full- term the 1st two, I'm trusting God the same for this baby.

Waited till 6 weeks for both parents as we had a lot of events coming up before we'd have reached the 12 week mark and it would have been hard to hide me not drinking etc plus I was bad with sickness. Had to tell a few people at work in my team as I needed help with heavy lifting etc. Do what feels right for you two though
