Pregnancy Etiquette - The Do's and Don'ts of Announcing Your Pregnancy
After telling your partner, your family and your partner's family is next in line to hear the big news. Whether you tell them right away or after you are out of your first trimester or even later is up to you, but it is generally agreed that family should know first before friends and acquaintances. You should follow the same rules for family as you do for your partner - in person and in private if possible. We realize there may be occasions where you may wish to tell a close friend before family, especially if you have reservations about their reaction. If your friend is a true confidant this may be acceptable, but use good judgement when telling friends before family.
