For couples eager to conceive, there’s nothing more exciting than finding out you’re pregnant and coming up with fun ways to announce your pregnancy! Having a baby will change your life forever, but for now, you can enjoy the pregnancy. And one of the best parts of being pregnant? Share the news with friends and family!

Since babies come so often, it’s fun to share the news in a special way. Below are some creative and fun ways to announce your pregnancy to your husband, friends, and family.

When to Announce Your Pregnancy

As soon as you see the positive on that little strip, you’ll probably want to tell the world – but try to be careful about how you announce your pregnancy. Most pregnant women wait until they are between 14 and 20 weeks into their pregnancy before sharing the news with people other than your husband. This gives you a chance to check in with your doctor and make sure the ultrasound looks good.

While it can be tempting to tell your inner circle right away, most women wait until after the first trimester, when the risk of miscarriage is highest. However, you are your expert and should feel empowered to make the decisions you feel are right. If you don’t want to wait until you’re through the first trimester, think about whether you feel comfortable telling your close friends and family if the pregnancy doesn’t work out. If the answer is yes, then go ahead and share the news with those closest to you.

1. Don’t hide it from your partner. As much as pregnancy is for you, it also has a big impact on your partner. Be sure to tell them right away.

2. Don’t tell the people you are close to on Facebook first. Be sure to tell the important people in your life before telling Facebook. The people closest to you should find out directly from you via phone call or one of our fun ways to announce your pregnancy below.

3. Don’t share news if you’re not ready. Some friends and acquaintances may notice when you don’t enjoy a mimosa at brunch as much as usual and may try to extract information from you.
