when to announce I'm pregnant?!?!

So I'm 5 weeks pregnant with my first and of course I have share with my closest people the great news, but I haven't shared it with everyone yet. I'm pretty excited and most everyone knows we have been trying for years now. So my question is when should I tell everyone... I have my first Dr apt Sept 17th but I can't wait that long. What do you ladies think?

    Congrats!!! I waited until I was 12 weeks to tell most people. I told a few close family members when I first found out.

      I think it is completely up to you. We didn't wait with our first but after that we did wait until at least 12 weeks. With our last we didn't even tell my mil until I was several months pregnant but that was because she had voiced her concern over how many children we were having so we did not think she would share our joy.
        We have been trying for 3 years and it seems like longer. Now that it's finally happened I'm kind of in shock. I have the 2 pregnancy tests sitting on the bathroom counter and my husband keeps asking how long we will leave it there...I said for now it stays cuz I don't want it to change. My birthday is in a few weeks so I'm thinking that will be a good time. I will be 7 week's and not drinking wine which is a big red flag to everyone.

        My husband of 8 years and I have been trying to get pregnant for over a year now. We had 2 cats, we are thinking about getting a dog and recently bought our first home. Now it's time to step up our efforts!
