Poll Discussion: Announcing Pregnancy


A reader requested we talk about announcing pregnancy for our next poll. That is a fun topic! It is very helpful for me when compiling answers if you at least number the answers you give. You can also copy the questions and answer them. If the question does not apply to you, simply put “N/A.”


  1. How many weeks gestation were you when you announced you were pregnant?
  2. Did you tell everyone at once, or did you tell family and close friends first and then weeks later tell the general public?
  3. What was your rational for announcing when you did?
  4. Will you do things differently next time?
  5. Any fun ideas for how to make the big announcement?
  6. Anything else you want to say?
