hi everyone, I'm Julie and this is my first time pregnant. I'm 11 weeks on now and just wondering when ya's would consider the best time to be, to share the good news. I'm desperate to tell everyone now but my partner wants to wait until we have have the first scan which will be in another 2-3 weeks. please help me settle this!

There is no right/wrong answer to this, it comes down to when you feel ready.
My eldest daughter saw me with a baby bump from 6wks & my family had twigged I was pregnant before I actually took a test!!! As such most people knew by 10wks into term that I was expecting.
My youngest was the opposite, I dropped a dress size during my 1st trimester, I had no hint of a bump until I was 13wks into term so could keep it secret longer. The only people who knew before hand were family who we told at 9wks.
Generally most people will wait until after their dating scan before telling their good news as many don't 'feel' pregnant until they see baby's picture. It also provides the all important 'due date' which everybody asks for once you break the news.
