How long did everyone wait before telling their parents or other family members about the baby?? I am worried about getting everyone excited and (knock on wood) having something happen???

We told close friends and family right away, b/c we would need their love and support if something happened. But we didn't tell everyone until the 2nd tri.

With Aspen (my first loss) I told everyone right away, m/c never entered my mind.

With Skyla (my second loss) I told close friends and family, I figured I would need their support if I m/c again.

With Keene (my 3rd loss) I told one friend but only because we tested together but no one else. To this day no one knows I had 3 losses

With this pregnancy 2 friends know. One that was stalking my chart and one that just asked me this weekend because she said she had a feeling and called me to ask. I couldn't dodge the question and believe me, I tried to sidetrack her so I caved and told her. I'll tell my parents when they come up this month and everyone else shortly after (I'll be 11 weeks).

I'll also tell everyone about my 3rd loss eventually, the right time hasn't happened yet though.

i had four losses before this pregnancy & my parents, sister & two best friends have been very supportive throughout all of them.
with this pregnancy, i told all of them immediately (i knew they would really want to know), but we waited until about 13 weeks to tell other people such as extended family and co-workers.

To be honest the only ones that knew i was pregnant again was my JM girls. I kept my mouth shut to my parents, till my dads birthday. and i was 14 weeks. and i stunned them when he opened the card and her u/s picture came out. LOL..

Dwayne didnt tell his parents till 2 months ago. Cause they are VERY rude, and dont think we should be having anymore.

We didnt really tell anyone till i knew for sure that things were going to be fine.
