When is everyone planning on announcing they are pregnant? 12 weeks? Earlier? Later? I'm still unsure when I will share .

UH yeah - Mine is a little hard to hide right now. I told my family at 6 weeks and work at 13 weeks. Haven't 'announced' on facebook or anything like that. My close friends know.

We announced to our parents at 7 weeks, and other immediate family and close friends at 13 weeks after the NT scan. We announced on FB at around 16 weeks I think.

I am not sure yet, only 5w 2d, but I will be watching this thread with interest for ideas!

I think the standard to wait to announce to the general public is at least to get past the 12 week mark. Close friends and family - when it feels right for you.

I told family at 5 weeks (I couldn't keep it to myself!) and 9 weeks I told my BFF. At 12 weeks I told everyone and at 16 weeks (and DH's birthday) we announced on FB.
At my 20 week appt, my OB said that I offically have a safe and healthy pregnancy and I can tell the world now. I said, too late! I think the world knew at 16 weeks, I was too excited
BTW - I'm not sure whether you know you posted in the April DIG, so the women in here are 27 weeks - 32 weeks pregnant, so we announced a while ago.
