I went to the doctor and I am six weeks pregnant.
I know there is a high risk of miscarriages the first trimester.
When should I tell my family and friends?
I am not married.
Also does Wedding Bee have a website for new moms?

If I were you, I would only tell the people who would be very, very supportive of you if things didn’t work out, and that you trusted not to say anything to other people.
I’m not sure the answer to your second question.

I would tell my immediate family (mother, dad, sisters) immediately…..only because if I were to miscarry, I would want their love and support. Ultimately, it’s up to you and what you feel comfortable doing.

I would tell my closest friends/family. You should do whatever you are comfortable with though. It’s definately OK to not tell anyone until you fee comfortable doing so. My brother and SIL didn’t tell anyone about their 1st pregnancy until after 12 weeks.

If you are comfortable with the idea of potentially explaining to everyone that you miscarried, then there’s nothing wrong with telling them now. Personally when I eventually get pregnant I will definitely want to wait the entire 3 months.

I agree with PPs. I would tell only the people you’re comfortable with going to if you miscarry. My mom and SIL knew the first time we got pregnant, and I was super grateful for their support when we miscarried.
I really like the pregnancy and baby boards on WB, but the couple who started WB recently started Hellobee.com, which is geared towards pregnancy and parenting.
Good luck, and congratulations!

I think it really depends on your family dynamics. If you aren’t married and this may not be received well by everyone I would wait to tell until after your 1st trimester. Try just telling your immediate support system right now and then wait until 12 weeks to tell anyone else you wish.

My ex and I told our parents, my daughter and my employer at about 8 weeks. I ended up miscarrying at 3 months. I have mixed feelings as to whether I would tell anyone that early again.
