Can you announce pregnancy at 20 weeks?

How many weeks pregnant Is it safe to announce?

Many women choose to delay announcing a pregnancy at least until the end of the first trimester (12 weeks into their pregnancy). This is commonly attributed to the risk of miscarriage during this time, but the 12-week mark is not a hard and fast rule you need to follow.

Can you announce your pregnancy at 19 weeks?

There is no set time when to tell others about a pregnancy. Some people immediately spread the news, while others wait until after the first trimester, or about 12 weeks.

What week is the highest risk of miscarriage?

The first trimester is associated with the highest risk for miscarriage. Most miscarriages occur in the first trimester before the 12th week of pregnancy. A miscarriage in the second trimester (between 13 and 19 weeks) happens in 1% to 5% of pregnancies.

When should you announce your pregnancy at 20 weeks?

Doctors consider it “safe” to announce the pregnancy at the end of the first trimester because, at the 13-week mark, the miscarriage risk drops to less than 1% and stays there for the remainder of the 20-week time period. After 20 weeks, the loss of a pregnancy is no longer considered a miscarriage but a stillbirth.
