When Should You Announce Your Twin Pregnancy?
When you first find out that you’re pregnant, whether it’s your first pregnancy or your fifth, you probably won’t know you’re having twins right away.
And even if the second line on the pregnancy test was really dark, or you show any of the other common twin pregnancy symptoms, (intense morning sickness or advanced weight gain are two of the biggest ones!) you generally won’t know for sure until you go in for your first ultrasound, around 6-8 weeks.
However, after the first trimester (12 weeks) is when most parents decide to make the big announcement. In all reality, it’s when the risk of miscarriage drops, so waiting until the 12 week point is a good rule of thumb for both physical and mental reasons.
Also, 12 weeks is when a lot of expecting mothers get their first ultrasound, since it’s easier to see the baby(s!) by then. This comes in really handy if you want to share ultrasound images with your friends and family!
Twin Pregnancy Announcements That Are Great for Social Media
You don’t have to announce your twin pregnancy to the whole world, but if that’s something you want to do, go for it! There are tons of adorable ideas for posting your twin pregnancy announcement. And any of these are also great for sending to family and friends, too!
One great way to announce a twin pregnancy is with a letter board. These make for great photographs, and if you’re savvy, you can do a really cute flat lay that incorporates things like baby shoes, onesies, and the ultrasound picture.
Pregnancy Announcement for Twins with a Pregnancy Test
Another fun way to announce your pregnancy is to show the pregnancy test reading positive. That says it all!

It’s likely that you’ll probably incorporate the due date no matter what, but I’ve seen some really fun ideas that involve calendars, date cards, or “coming soon” lettering.
Twin Pregnancy Announcements for Older Siblings
If you already have a firstborn (or several), some of the best ways to announce the new addition is to get them involved!
Some of the best ways to include them are to have the big brother or big sister to-be hold the sign, or take pictures of them reacting to the new baby news! This is especially fun when you have older children who can understand right away what “twin babies” means!
Twin Pregnancy Announcements When You Know the Genders
If you already know the genders of the twins, you may choose to announce it at the same time you announce your twin pregnancy, especially if you don’t plan on having a gender reveal party and you want it announced before the baby shower.
You can always head on over to my twin gender reveal post for a round-up of great ideas on how to make the big announcement.
