You’re pregnant! Congrats! Now you might be thinking about ways to announce your pregnancy on social media!
It’s such an exciting time. Among all the joy and anticipation, comes the lovely warm moment -telling your loved ones you’re expecting. With so many people to tell, comes the question of who to tell and how?
You only get one reveal, so make it one to remember! Read on to find out our favorite ways to announce your pregnancy on social media!
When to announce your pregnancy on social media?
Many parents-to-be wait until the end of the first trimester — around week 13 — to tell friends and family about their pregnancy.
Several factors influence why people wait until this time to share the news. Firstly, pregnancy can be a precarious thing. Often, couples decide to wait until the three-month mark has passed before they share their special news far and wide.
Secondly, nine months is a long time. Savoring 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.
Still, the most important part of your decision should revolve around what makes you the most comfortable.
How not to announce your pregnancy
Remember, your partner comes first if they don’t find out along with you. Then comes the grandparents, uncles and aunts and your bffs. Work mates and the entire Instagram come last.
You can inadvertently hurt real friends if they only find out at the same time as the internet. Your boss will probably be miffed if they find out after the entire office.
Bear in mind that many family members will appreciate being told your special news in person, especially those close to you.
Keep those pointers in mind and then let your creativity run wild with our top pregnancy reveals!
