When Should We Announce Our Pregnancy?

This is such a personal decision and will really depend on your own individual circumstances. Some couples like to wait until they have seen the first ultrasound or heard the heartbeat at their 12-week scan.

For others, they want to announce their pregnancy as soon as possible, even if this means that there is a small chance something could go wrong.

If you have had a previous loss, you might want to wait until after the 12-week mark or even further along in your pregnancy.

It really is up to you when you feel comfortable sharing your news and there is no right or wrong answer. Just go with what feels right for you and your partner, even if that means just sharing with your parents or closest friends initially.

And to prepare for the arrival of your new baby, if you have older kids, these big brother and big sister books and sibling gifts will help ease them into the transition of the new arrival and their new role as the big sibling.

No matter what way you choose to announce your pregnancy, make sure it is something that both you and your partner are happy with. These fun and creative ideas should help get the ball rolling for fun pregnancy announcement ideas to share your exciting news!

Congrats!! My first half of pregnancy was easier the second time. i was nowhere near as sick although still sick for the first 16 weeks. The last month was sooooo much harder though. My body felt it was falling apart, but then no doubt this was due to the fact that my first child was only 1 and massively big for her age (she hit 20kg at 2!). Anytime I had to lift her I felt like I was going to split in half. I had a girl then boy and I pretty much experienced the old wives tale differences.


Wednesday 3rd of December 2014

Thank you. Oh my... I am trying to imagine a 20kg 2 year old lol my daughter is 2 today and tall but skinny. She's around 11-12kg. No wonder you were in pain. So far I am thinking food tastes and the heartbeat over 140 bpm could mean another girl but everyone else thinks boy since I've had all the extra sickness and symptoms. Next scan is about 5 weeks away... So long to wait hehe

My first pregnancy was a breeze; 2,3&4 were revolting, with 2 being worst (girl, vomited 24/7 until labour), 3 gave me a reprieve from vomiting from 18-26wks, then started again (boy); and 4 was a repeat of 3 (girl) - it's all a fallacy; except indigestion and hair.


Friday 28th of November 2014

Oh dear, I can't believe you went back for more haha that sounds terrible Cate. The indigestion this time is strange. Too early to mean a hairy baby and Lily was near bald. It's easing up but how unpleasant it has been. I'm expecting another not very hairy child lol but you never know ;)
