    I know i've asked this before and most people said they told people after their 12 weeks scans... i had my scan 2 weeks ago and saw little bean and heartbeat and everything but i'm now 13 weeks tomorrow and have still not properly announced the pregnancy.

    My best friends and family know but that's it, i've not "facebooked" it so to speak lol am i the only paranoid person in the world?

    I didn't tell anyone apart from close family and friends till I was about 16 weeks-after I'd heard pip's heartbeat cos I was so paranoid!!

    Don't feel pressurised too tell people- do it in your own time x

    Family will be after 12 weeks scan I think and Facebook never lol, ok maybe after bubs is here as I don't see the point of every person there to know.

    Im not telling anyone until 12 weeks and then it will prob only be family and very close friends.
    A public FB announcement I am planning to leave until 20 weeks (am also very paranoid!) and as I live the other side of the Atlantic nobody will see my bump growing so I think I can get away with delaying the announcement!
    Biggest problem at the moment is avoiding boozy nights here, as the minute I go out without a drink the secret will be out!!!

    I would go with what makes you feel comfortable, at the moment I am quite enjoying it being mine and oh little secret :) xx
