When to announce your pregnancy depends on who you are going to tell about it. Partners are usually the first to know, followed by close family and friends. Most of us wait at least until the end of the first trimester before telling anyone else.
The reason for this is that the risk of miscarriage decreases as the pregnancy progresses. When the pregnancy is in the thirteenth week, the risk of miscarriage is greatly reduced, so women feel more comfortable sharing their news. An unexpected pregnancy announcement for your partner is likely to be different than an announcement involving anyone else.
Do you plan to wait as long as possible to tell the world about your pregnancy? In this case, your pregnancy announcement may include sharing your belly. Many women choose to wait until their second trimester starts making an announcement as the risk of miscarriage is reduced. If you do, don’t post an exciting or creative pregnancy announcement on social media.
