Post subject: Telling people!
We've just found out we're expecting our first child! We're both over the moon, finding it hard not to jump around telling everyone! and to be honest I can't wait to be able to do so! Does everyone think waiting till 3 months is the best thing to do?

Wooo congratulations MissMum!!!!
My advice would always be, tell everyone whenever you and partner want cos it's your baby! Some people feel safer waiting but others are too excited. I told a few close people very early on and then formally announced it at 12 weeks but it's really up to you and how you guys feel about it xxxxxxx
I'm not on here all the time so if you need anything PM me Arch x

I would say it's up to you to decide what to do - if you and OH want to tell people do - I did when I was PG, I told anyone who would listen, the thing is it's the best news ever and why should you not tell people.
However, I lost my baby at 7 weeks 4 days and the worst thing was having to text and tell people - so just bear that in mind. Im SURE nothing will happen but best to be awear.
Congratulations on your news you must be so pleased

thank you for your kind replies. I've told a few people now, mainly as I just can't think about anything else! I am so excited but really scared at the same time. Poor old shane (my other half) hasn't told anyone and is itching to tell people. I am just really worried something might go wrong. it would break my heart to have to tell family and friends that we lost the baby! Maybe i'm being over worried as its my first baby?!

I agree we were so excited when we found out we couldn't not tell people to be honest, if your unsure just tell people you are really close to so at least you have someone you can talk to about it and be excited with other than OH. Good luck and all the best xxxx

congrats hope all goes well.
we didnt want to tell anyone till i was 12 weeks but beings as i had to go for a early scan @ 6 weeks and hubby had to take time off from work. we had to tell my parents as hubby and my dad work at same place and we were worried hubbies boss might say something by accident. made both sets of parents keep quiet till i was 12 tho lol
