I have an ultra sound this week and if everything goes well I was thinking about announcing my pregnancy but I will only be 10 weeks. Do you think that is too early? I can't decide.

I told my parents, sister, in laws, nephew and my "second parents". They all told everyone else. I won't be 10 weeks until Wednesday.

I told my family and friends around 8-10 weeks but I didn't let all my nosy Facebook friends know until I was 23 weeks. 

Basically, if you talk to me youll know pretty soon. But if I don't talk to you, then you're waiting a whileeee lol.

That's what I was thinking about doing but I also thought maybe I'll have a pic of my daughter holding the ultra sound pic and saying on fb that she's going to be a big sister.

I announced with my third at like 5-6 weeks, whenever I found out. I don't care at this point. My thinking is if something terrible happens and I miscarry then I won't want that to be a secret either, I'll want support. 


That's true.

Same here!

OP whenever you personally feel comfortable it is the right time. Never too early =)

I guess I will decide after my ultra sound if I feel comfortable or not. I feel like if everything goes well I'll want to announce it!

That's really up to you. Personally, I'd wait until at least 12 weeks when you're out of the miscarriage window. However, if that were to happen and you wouldn't mind having to tell everyone, that's your choice. I always waited until closer to 16 weeks. I revealed my second and third children along with the sex. I think that worked out well. My last baby we kept the sex a surprise so we announced around 20 weeks I think it was, and told everyone it would be a surprise.
