Post subject: When to tell people??!!
So far I havent had any sickness in my pregnancy and I am now 9 1/2 weeks. Although I have had extreme fatigue and have been signed off work again. It is no joke, I've never been so tired in my life and I can't do a thing.

My question is, does anyone think it would be silly 2 start telling people at 10 weeks?? I was going 2 wait untill 12 weeks but is the danger level still quite high at week 10?? I am just so desperate 2 tell all my friends but I don't want 2 tempt fate!!

Please come back 2 me with some help/advice??

Thanks,

Helen

Hi there - I had my dating scan at 10 weeks 5 days all was well so we told everyone, wanted to wait until I saw it first. Can appreciate the tiredness it does wear off after about 11/12 weeks!!

Take care and good luck, Flossie xx

The way you have to look at it is by telling people your lovely news you cant tempt fate....you do what makes you happy, you sound like you are bursting Laughing Let it out you will be even happier.

Oh dear, I've told nearly everyone as I can't keep anything to myself.. but then I thought if something does go wrong, then the people I have told will want to help me through it as my friends are my family really...

It's just too exciting!

Hi I told my mum whilst still holding the pee stick at 4 weeks (we're very close!!!Very Happy) then my best mate at 6 weeks and my boss at 7 weeks cos I had some early bleeding. Waited til 12 weeks for everyone else but it was so nice to have a few people who knew to support us. I say tell who you want, when you want ! Smile

hi, we told our parents and i told my best friends pretty much when i found out week 7/8 - the other half told everyone due to overexcitement but i held back a bit
to be honest if you suffer (and i did in the first trimester) it was pretty hard to lie about everything
as soon as we had our scan we relaxed but to be honest at that point i couldnt remember who knew and who didnt !
people who love you and care about you will be so happy and if anything it helps to have the support in the early stages especially as you worry about every little thing !

WE found out last week, I was 6 (ish!) weeks! WE basically told everyone straight away as we are now moving the wedding forward as my OH wants us to be married when we have the baby. Only not told work yet as am fairly new there and want to check my contract and rights etc before I do!!

We told all family and friends as we need the support (in the next 7 months we have 2 houses to sell, my OH needs to relocate to live with me, he starts a new job, we get married, have the baby, buy a house - HAHAHAHAHA - all this was planned but over a slightly longer time scale) so, yes we needs family and friends support.

Also, I felt that if anything did go wrong, I'd want people to know why I was feeling the way I was . . .
