Who was the first person you told?
We asked our Facebook fans who was the first person they shared their pregnancy news with. Here’s what they had to say.
Discovering you’re pregnant is a great surprise, even when you’re trying for a little one. We asked our Facebook fans aside from their partner, who was the first person they told. Here’s what they said:

My parents :) ( although my mom knew before I even did a test). She “just knew it".  We always say my mom's a "witch" because she just knows stuff… haha - Felicity MacTavish

My sister! She got lucky because she was the person that took us to the gynae that day. Then it was my mum. - Fathima BabyCakes Ebrahim

My best friend called me in the morning to tell me his girlfriend was pregnant, and It propelled me to go for my test the same day and found out I was pregnant as well. I called him immediately!! - Tanya Ronnie-Daniels

My mom! She stays overseas and it was so early when I phoned her, the first thing she said was "Are you pregnant?" Hehe… I cried and laughed at the same time! - Rika-Marie Whelan

My mom. I took a photo of the pregnancy test and MMSd it to her. She, initially, wondered why I was sending her a photo of bus tickets LOL. - Melanie Landzaat

?To be honest I never knew I was pregnant, until I was about four or five months. Something looked weird for them. My grandma started noticing things about me and I never knew they were talking about.  My mum just took me to the doctor and there she found out. I was shocked! - Zayaan Isaacs
