I'm currently 10 weeks pregnant and unsure when to inform my parents, brother, and in-laws. I've experienced two miscarriages before, both occurring after sharing the news with my relatives. Our families are visiting this week. Should I disclose the pregnancy in person or wait until I reach the second trimester?

It can be a challenging decision to share pregnancy news after experiencing previous miscarriages. While there is no one-size-fits-all answer, it is generally recommended to wait until you reach the second trimester before disclosing the news. This is because the risk of miscarriage significantly decreases after this stage. However, ultimately, it's up to you and your partner to decide when you feel comfortable sharing this exciting news with your loved ones.

Consider discussing your concerns with your healthcare provider who can provide personalized advice based on your medical history and current pregnancy progress. They may also offer additional support or resources for managing any anxiety or fear related to past experiences.

If you decide to wait until the second trimester, consider finding a special moment or occasion where you can privately share the news with your parents, brother, and in-laws. This will allow them to celebrate this joyous occasion while minimizing potential stress or worry during early stages of pregnancy.

Remember that every pregnancy journey is unique, and what matters most is prioritizing your emotional well-being throughout this process. Surround yourself with a supportive network of family and friends who can offer understanding and encouragement as you navigate this exciting but sometimes nerve-wracking time.

I didn't tell my family until I reached 12 weeks = 3 months. I think its best that way, because its past the danger zone. Of course tell the father of the baby as soon as u know though. I'm 20 weeks + 3 days now. Good luck :)

I'm 7 weeks and have told my work, working in childcare especially working with under 2 yr olds due to policies I can't be working with them. I had to tell my son's footy team as well because I'm their sports trainer , just so everyone is aware Incase I faint on game day lol besides that haven't really told anyone, i'm dying too so bad though. But I'm waiting till the 1st trimester is over to share the news. I'd rather wait till I'm out of danger zone, only cause if something happens I don't want everyone to know about it, thats something I want to deal with personally but that's just me.

My husband and I waited until we were 13 weeks pregnant to tell our families. Unfortunately that same week we lost the baby. I've had an amazing support system, our families were beond supportive. I'm currently 4 weeks pregnant and I honestly don't think we're going to tell anyone until at least 16 weeks.

Am in my 7th week of pregnancy, and i will tell them when i am like past the third month maybe the 12th week

Its best when you are past the first trimester 

And so you also can feel more confident about it

I hope you have a wonderful pregnancy and deliver a great child
