Announce at 12 weeks or after first scan


I have been holding back telling everyone that I am pregnant until 12 weeks.

Well, 12 weeks is here on Sunday but I am having my first scan on Thursday. I'm pretty sure everything is ok, HCG levels are good, morning sickness all day & night, & I'm exhausted. So, not sure if I should say something this weekend or wait until after the scan?

Personally I'd wait until after the scan since it's not that much longer to wait in the grand scheme of things but that's just because I want to be extra sure everything's ok before I tell people. Good luck for your scan! x

I will be 12 weeks next Thursday (my calculations) and the scan is not until following Monday. We are intending to tell the older kids when we get back from scan on Monday, would hate to tell them then to get bad news at the scan.

Nobody else in my extended family has kept things this quiet for so long but given my two losses this year and recently having to tell my daughters we are no longer fostering due to the child's poor health, I don't want them to get their hopes up then have to tell them bad news.

I will be 12+3 on my scan date so not that much longer for me to wait. We're waiting til we have the scan pic in our hands.
If you've held it in so far a few more days won't hurt... will they

I'd wait until the scan too. If you've waited this long you may as well just to be sure!

Me personally i would wait untill you got your scan and also that way, you can say oh Look at this to family and friends and show them baby on your scan picture

This time i got a early reassurance scan at 7weeks and as soon as i had that, i told EVERYONE!!! that was all i needed

I contemplated the same but will wait for my scan, which is on Wednesday. Just two days after. I'm excited for all of us!
