How early did you tell your families

Postby jamiesg » Thu Dec 03, 2015 12:53 pm

Hey guys!! I am wondering how early you told your families you were pregnant? I will only be 6.5 weeks at Christmas and would love to tell our families. We are just a tad skeptical though. I won't have my first appointment until January 4 at 8 weeks.

I'm 5+2 today and we told our families last week at thanksgiving! I've had only 1 other pregnancy and everything went beautifully, so we were excited to spill the beans. We went with the idea that if something were to happen to the baby, at least we would have an amazing support system!

We told our immediate families straight away, and are waiting till 12 weeks to tell the rest. If I had a miscarriage I would absolutely want my mom and sister to know about it so no reason to keep it quiet. Plus there are so few people you can share the news with before the second trimester, that I wouldnt have had anyone to complain to about the nausea if I didnt tell! lol

We waited until around 8 weeks, partly because it was news we wanted to break in person and that was the first convenient time to do it. I'm also not very close with my family, so I did not really relish the idea of having to share a possible miscarriage with them - but by 8 weeks the risk was low enough that I was willing to chance it.

If you decide to tell them at Christmas, I hope it's a really great surprise for everyone! Best wishes to you :)
