I am pregnant for the second time. The first time I had a miscarriage at 5 1/2 weeks. I am now 7 weeks pregnant and just wondering when I should announce it to everyone in the family. Do you think it would be ok to after first dr. appointment or should I wait until the 12 week mark. I have a good feeling this time but anything can happen. It's just hard not to say anything Ugh the wait is horrible.

With my first pregnancy I waited untill 3 months pregnant. But I told my best friend and my mom the day after I told my husband.
If I get pregnant again (currently starting 2 week wait) I'll probably wait till 3 month mark or 4 month mark because last time I was driven crazy by people asking me about if it was a boy or a girl. So I think I'd just do the announcement and the gender at the same time.

It's all down to individual preferences- they say after the 12 week scan is most common. When I become pregnant I probably won't wait to do a big announcement I will tell family and close friends early on and as I choose. people wait until the 12 weeks to make sure everything is ok as its the first 12 weeks that are the most uncertainty of whether something will go wrong. I personally would like the support of my family and friends if anything were to go wrong. To me a life is a life from the moment it's created I would grieve any loss no matter how early.
