I am five weeks pregnant, so very early on! When should I start telling my family? I am very excited, but don't want to start sharing the news too soon.

I would tell them after 8 weeks... But, it really comes down to you and what you want

If you are ready to tell them now, then go for it. Don't be afraid to share this with your family, they are with you no matter what.

Agreed! I didn't even have to tell my mom! LOL I walked up to her, and I am not exaggerating one bit, I looked at her, said good morning, and she goes....You're pregnant. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Its totally up to you!!! but my advice is to wait enough so you have time to process it all and enjoy the excitement on your own, but don't wait too long so that your family can be there for you and be a part of this exciting journey.

Wait as long as you want to wait. I waited too long and I regretted it, but I was scared. My family reassured me I could've told them sooner and they would have been there for me, which was quite relieving. So wait til your ready, but know they will be there for you!

Tell the people who are important to you as soon as possible, then tell the less important people when you feel comfortable, and then everyone else can just find out when they find out. But definitely tell your immediate family and friends first as they will be the ones there for you during it all. Good Luck!!

Congrats Christine! Just like the other girls said. It is really up to you and when you feel ready to share the big news.  I told my immediate family instantly and let the others just ask.

I think this is completely up to when you feel comfortable. I waited for a bit before I told my family, but that was personal preference. You'll know when it's time.

It's a super personal decision. We waited until 10 weeks. I tried to wait until 12 but Hubby slipped. lol

It varied with each kid. I didn't tell a sole until 16 weeks with my 1st. I was so nervous! I told people at 12 weeks with my second. With the latest I told people around 10 weeks. I couldn't hide the bump!

I told my family right away specially my mother in law I know weird hahah but we have a great relationship and my mom was working. Then I told my mom and my mother in law told our great grandmas at new years eve party and everyone congratulated us. My coworkers found out pretty quick as well. We were excited for our second For our first we were 19 and super scared of what our parents were going to say but both of our families have been a huge wonderful blessing to our children.

When ever you are ready! There is not right or wrong time, that depends on you! Its a personal decision.

I told my mom right away.. but waited until 13 weeks to tell everyone else.  But I'd had a prior loss that made me extra cautious.

I told my family when I was 12 weeks and the pregnancy was more stable, i was afraid of a miss carriage and didn’t want anyone to be sad about it

I told my mother the day after I got a positive on the pregnancy test, she's my best friend and I wouldn't have wanted to wait to tell her. As for the rest of my family, about 10 weeks.

Congratulations as well, and it's great that you're feeling this excitement. I personally waited until after my first trimester but definitely go with what feels right to you!

I told all of my immediate family right away, although I was a bit nervous It felt right! I didn’t tell extended family until 4+ months, some still don’t know lol!

I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was 12 weeks 😳 I only found out because I was at the doctors to get shots to travel out of the country. My doc asked if I had any health concerns and I said I haven't had my period for 3 months. Asked if I could be pregnant and I didn't think so because my period is always irregular. She wanted to give me a text just to make sure. And sure enough I was pregnant.

Whenever you feel comfortable enough to! I told mine pretty early on but it was a little nerve racking! People started getting stuff quite early and I was so nervous something was going to happen!
