    symptoms started before my missed period. Tell the people who would be there for you if you miscarried when you’re ready. Everyone else .. wait until after you’re 12 weeks pregnant.

    mine started about wk 5 and have gotten worse since then. however, everyone is different – some ppl have mild symptoms others have severe – some none at all. i announced around week six, but some ppl chose to wait until after the first trimester is over because the risk of miscarriage diminishes. best of luck to you. :)

    Like 4 weeks. I told my family and a few friends at 10 weeks then 12 weeks but certain people dont need to know that I am pregnant seeing as its really none of their business

    I didn’t notice they symptoms until I knew I was pregnant, they were there but it wasn’t until i knew that it became full blown ya know? I didnt tell people until 4 months I wanted to make it out of the first trimester because that is your greatest risk for a miscarraige. My sister on the other hand told everyone they day after she found out.

    4 weeks I was feeling breast soreness. My body just didn’t feel right to me so I took a pregnancy test before I ever missed my period and I was pregnant. Yay.

    I was so excited so I told my mom as soon as I took the test and got the results. My husband is in the military and was out of town so I waited until he got home. And then, I waited until after my first ultrasound at 9 weeks to tell my grandmother and the rest of my family. It’s a personal decision though as far as when you want to tell your family/friends. Some people wait until after the first trimester incase they have a miscarriage.

    Hi I’m 7 weeks along. My symptoms started to kick in last week. Feeling nauseous and headaches :( Oh well during my first pregnancy I was lucky not to experience any sickness so I guess it’s my turn this time ;) I started telling people I was pregnant last week. Even though they do say it’s best to wait until 12 weeks. I just couldn’t wait! I’m so excited!!

    Question to “Mummy” when is your due date?? I’m due 10th October :) How exciting!!

    I was 6 weeks along when I found out. It started at 8 weeks for me to start feeling the symptoms. I told everyone after I left the doctor’s office. They were all excited.

    Usually, first symptom is missed period, which is about 4 weeks, and possibly fatigue, ( but that can start pretty early.) I started getting sick at about 5 weeks. As for telling family and friends, I would suggest waiting until you have made it past the first 12 weeks, to avoid having to tell everyone if something goes wrong. (Prayerfully it won’t.) However, if you are anything like my husband and me, I had to tell a lot of people right away. We couldn’t hold in the joy, we wanted to share it with the world!!!

    3 out of 4 pregnancies I knew I was pregnant within 48 hours of conception. My body goes into hyper mode when I’m pregnant, right now I’m 5 weeks pregnant with #4 and my boobs are already a size bigger and producing colostrum. When I’m pregnant, I’m REALLY PREGNANT LOL!!
    I always tell people as soon as I have confirmed it with a pregnancy test. Life is too short to worry about what might happen.
