When to announce your pregnancy to your family?

Many parents-to-be wait until the end of the first trimester — at week 13 — to tell friends and family about their pregnancy

Many factors influence why people wait until this time to share the news. First, many couples feel more comfortable until the first trimester is over and they can relax a bit.

Second, nine months is a long time. Tasting the news with your partner can be really special, if you have time to share the news, it can be fun to keep it your little secret.

However, the most important part of your decision should revolve around what makes you and your partner happy.

You may inadvertently hurt a lot of feelings if the family finds out at the same time you make a social media announcement to the world.
