Would you tell your friends and family if you mc? Are you superstitious? I told close family and was glad I did as I mc and found it was easier that they knew as I wouldve told them I had mc anyway.
Congrats on your bfp! xxx

Its personal choice. I told close family before scan but everyone else after. Some people prefer to wait for reasurrance that scan brings.
congrats, have a happy healthy 9 months xx

Hi! I too would LOVE to tell my mum and my best friend - my mum will be so excited and my best friend is just about to start ttc her second so it would be great to ask her advice on things - but I'm not telling anyone until my 12 wk scan.
Purely for the reason that if something (god forbid) happened and I mc'd - then I wouldn't want to have to tell people ... if you see what I mean. x

I'm 8 + 4 and I have told our parents, siblings and some very close friends, and my boss, purely becos I was desparate to tell, and also these are the people I would tell should the worst happen!

I'm starting to think that maybe I should tell my mum ... just to have someone else to confide it - I think I'm driving DH up the wall ... but I'm only 5+4 so really don't want to get too carried away yet ... maybe in a few weeks !
Although saying that, in 3 weeks we are going on holiday with some friends - its going to be a challange keeping it from them ! Especially as (a) I won't be drinking (although I've already told my friend that I'm giving up drinking in March in order to "prepare my body for ttc" - ha ha) but we are meant to be having a spa morning ... DH said I'll just have to book up a couple of treatments so I don't have "time" to go in the jacuzzi/sauna etc. I think I might have a pedicure then I can use the excuse that I've just had my nails painted !!!

How many DPO did you get a BFP????
Hi ladies, How early did you all get a positive test? The 2ww is so hard 😂 however I've had lots of belly cramps 4/5 DPO so hoping this could be a sign!
