When Should You Announce Your Pregnancy?
We know that you cannot wait for the baby announcement; however, you need to be careful before you share the news. Various factors influence this decision but it is usually advised that parents-to-be should wait until the end of the trimester to announce their pregnancy and make an official baby announcement.
