When should you start announcing your pregnancy? 

When do most people announce pregnancy? It depends but the majority of women wait until the 12-14 week mark for a number of reasons.

Firstly, once you hit your second trimester, the risk of pregnancy loss drops significantly.

According to the Mayo Clinic, most miscarriages occur before 12 weeks so many couples like to wait until then, at least when they are thinking about when to announce their pregnancy on social media.

Waiting until 20 weeks to announce pregnancy is also pretty popular.

Why? Well, at around 20 weeks you will have your anatomy scan that can often reveal the sex of your baby, making the announcement even more fun!

The truth, of course is that as soon as you confirm you are pregnant you can tell whomever you like – its really up to you!

By the way, I’m assuming that your partner already knows that you are pregnant, but if not, here’s How To Tell Your Husband You’re Pregnant.
