I told immediate family (the parents and sisters) about a week after we found out. I told my best friend a few days after that as I am due on her hen weekend so thought it fair to tell her as soon as possible. Other family members we told once we were at 9 weeks when we had the dating scan.

matt told everyone when his ex was about 12 weeks as they lost the first baby and dint want to risk it again, i'll probably tell my immediate family after a few weeks as i lost a baby at 8 weeks (hadnt told anyone except partner) so would probably do the same and start telling at about 12 weeks altho it would drive me crazy not telling lol

I found it hard at work to keep quiet, because I was feeling so ill. Plus I was coming up to the 12 weeks around Christmas so I think a few people guessed when I went to the parties and had a sparkling water rather then my usual large glass of white wine!!!

Well I told my ex the day I took the test (he had popped home on his lunch) and a week later I told my mum (3 days later my ex ends the relationship - nice touch)
I was cruel to my friends. Being that Im training to be a nurse we have 5 weeks at uni and then 5 weeks on placement. Whilst on placement we dont see a lot of each other. It also happened we had two weeks holiday so really I hadnt seen them for quite a while and and was almost 4 months by the time I saw them. However due to sickness Id lost a lot of weight (2stone) and when I saw them I was a lot slimmer, not eating and had been in hospital. I sat them down and told them Id been ill and that I would need to be admitted to hospital because of it. They sat in silence and then I pulled out a scan picture!
Im so evil!!

I told hubby about 2 hours after taking test - when he got in from work. I also text a friend, as she had seen me getting the tests. And told the girls on the WIF.

Hubby was extremely excited, so he called his parents straight away. We then took a bottle of champagne to my parents and told them. We told my brother 2 weeks later, and the rest of my family when I got to 9 weeks.

I had to tell work straight away, due to the nature of my job.

I told my Mum right away! I couldn't wait but as I was flying home a few days later I asked her not to tell my Dad or brother. When I got home, I told them and my Dad was right grumpy about it. Turns out (according to Mum) it was the first time he realised that I was having sex - despite being married for 2 months at this point!

I told my main boss at work right away as I knew I would be needing loads of hospital appointment as I am diabetic. Told all our close friends at about 11 weeks. Other work colleagues I told at 12 weeks.

we did the test together and then after our dating scan (Which was 11 weeks exactly) we went round our parents and siblings houses, I don't remember telling his family, but with my parents we told them to close their eyes cos we had a surprise then pulled out the scan picture they were really shocked!!! I think we did something similar with my sister, but she had already guessed.
