When do you start showing and telling?
I'm 10 weeks preggy today and I'm already showing , my little tummy has popped out ! We've pnly told our immediate family and decided to wait before telling friends etc till after 12 weeks but now I'm constatly asked and it killed me to lie anout it because I just feel like sharing the good news. I had a miscarriage last year and we had told the whole world our good news immediately after we've found out and it was very difficult telling the bad news.

Am i showing too soon or is this normal? and when is it a good and safe time to announce the news?

thank you

Quite normal and to be on the safe side you are right to wait till after 12 weeks.
