when to announce pregnancy?

I have one son, that we told everyone at 5 weeks. I had a miscarriage at 5 weeks in may of this year, now my husband is nervous to tell anyone until after 14 weeks. I can't wait that long! I am nervous something will happen but I feel so much better this time around. I've told my best friend but no one else. I'm 6 weeks now, when would u annouce it??

I usually tell 1-2 people right away. We announce to most others after the first ultrasound, so around 8-10 weeks. I get terrible morning sickness so it's very difficult to hide from people I see on a regular basis.

We are also going camping next weekend and people are going to wonder why I don't want to have a drink.

I tell everyone who I think would be supportive if I lost the pregnancy. So my mom, MIL, SILs, best friends etc. I tell my boss and co workers later. Everyone else finds out through the grapevine.

We told my mom, one friend and family members when we found out at 6 or 7 weeks. I waited til 12 weeks to tell anyone else, including my in laws.

Re: when to announce pregnancy?

We usually tell people pretty much right away. My sister and parents are usually the first people we tell although this time my sister was the first outside of my husband but our best friends were the second because we took the test because they were coming for dinner with their baby and I was super sick. Wanted to make sure I wasn't contagious. lol Nope. Well she may have baby fever again but that isn't entirely my fault. hehe. But I've never experienced a loss and can't say whether or not that would change when we tell people.

We'd been trying for four months this time so it was really hard to keep a lid on our excitement. We found out on a Friday morning and that Sunday our pastor said something about us having four kids and I couldn't stop myself from saying "For now" and even DH was so excited this go around he couldn't wait to tell a couple of his guy friends.

Anyway most of our friends and family easily know by 8 weeks at the latest.

My close friends and family knew right away.

I lost a baby at 16 weeks and still had a hard time keeping this pregnancy a secret. Anyways, I think every baby deserves to be 'known' even if only for a couple weeks.

Re: when to announce pregnancy?

We told our families at 9 weeks. We had seen the heartbeat on ultrasound twice, and just felt it was the "right time".
