When to announce???

I'm 11 weeks and have announced to close family and friends and am wondering when I should tell everyone else. I've had many friends announce their pregnancy only to end up losing the baby. I didn't find out I was pregnant with my first until 18 weeks so I knew I was in the clear and told everyone. I'm not used to this 1st trimester business!

They usually say its safe after 12 weeks end of first trimester. My dr. Said that its fine to announce once u see and hear the heart beat because the chance of miscarriage decreases great when there is a heart beat.

I told my parents and work at 16 weeks juss to be on the safe side. I heard after you reach your second trimester, your risk of having a m/c drops significantly, so that's why I waited a lil' bit after I reached the 2nd trimester.

I think I'm going to wait until 14 weeks. I don't want to do it at 12 and I don't like the number 13....so 14 it is!  :) Thanks again!
