When should I announce that I’m pregnant?
Ah, the age-old quandary: when to tell people you’re expecting?
How and when you tell people is totally up to you.
You might have heard that you should hold off telling people until the end of your first trimester, at 12 weeks.
But this isn’t a hard and fast rule, and some parents-to-be decide to let people know sooner (or later).
The recommendation of waiting until 12 weeks comes from the fact that most pregnancy losses happen in the first trimester.
After that, the risk decreases.
12 weeks is when many mamas-to-be will get their first scan, so this provides a concrete milestone for many to start sharing their news.
But some mamas feel decidedly ropey during those first few weeks of pregnancy and may be looking for some additional support.
Basically, there’s no one way to do this.
You do you!
How do you announce pregnancy on Easter?
