When should you announce your pregnancy on social media?

As a rule of thumb, I always wait until we’ve passed the 12-week mark to share anything on social media.

But honestly, it’s up to you.

Some moms want extra support from their online friends if they experience a miscarriage and others don’t.

Just remember to tell your most important loved ones in person so they don’t end up finding out on Facebook!

And don’t forget to keep the announcement true to you and your style.

So whether you’re looking for simple ways to announce your pregnancy to your husband or creative pregnancy announcement ideas for Facebook, below are 70+ modern baby announcement ideas that will help you share your happy news with all of your loved ones.
