Social media announcment

Postby Lilsgrnspice » Sat Jul 25, 2015 7:23 am

Just crossed over into 13 weeks with first baby, first pregnancy with no history of MC. Is it too early to announce publicly via social media still? We just took our announcement photo and I love it!

That's an awesome photo!

I say you should announce on social media when you and your H agree that you're both comfortable doing so. We announced just after 12 weeks, which for us coincided with our wedding anniversary. I obsessively Googled for miscarriage statistics and around 12 weeks is when the risks drop to the lowest they'll be for your pregnancy.

So if you are both on board with announcing, go for it!

Same for us, we announced on social media just after our 12 weeks scan which was reassuring ^^

We announced at 13 weeks and to be honest I really regretted it because we lost the baby at 18 weeks and I felt like I HAD to make an announcement about the loss because all 600 of my facebook friends knew about the pregnancy. But what happened to me was quite rare so I don't think you have anything to worry about once you're safely in the second trimester. Personally, next time I'm pregnant I'll wait till viability (24 weeks) to announce on social media.
