I notice there is a new trend to not FB. Its in vogue to not put up an announcement.
I documented our Ivf journey so everybody got a photo of my poas about 5 mins after it happened. Conversely I also had to announce our baby leaving us at 14 weeks and everybody was so supportive.

Pregnancy #1 - we told immediate family and my closest friend at about 4/5 weeks, mostly for support as I was spotting a fair bit. My friend was the only person who knew we were TTC and the struggles we'd had. I had to tell work at 6wks when I started bleeding and needed to leave abruptly one day. I miscarried a few days later and it was awful having to tell people what happened.
Pregnancy #2 - immediate family at 6wks on my 30th birthday. Close friends at 7wks and work at 13wks. Announced on FB at 17wks.
Pregnancy #3 - DS is an IVF baby and we made a decision going into it that we'd be quite open about what we were doing. It made things a lot easier when organizing time off work and babysitting for DD when I had procedures done. So we told family and friends pretty much straight away. I told my boss and announced it at work at 13wks when we returned from the Christmas break.
If you want to tell people, go for it!

I told my 2 best friends a few days after finding out.
I told work and family at 8 weeks. Then everyone else early in second trimester.

I told my best friend the day after I found out, DH's family found out by accident a week after that (about 5 weeks). Told my family at 8 weeks, then extended family at 12 weeks. And probably lots of other people along the way there (DH was too excited!).
We didn't post on FB until she was born. Personal choice

When did you announce your pregnancy?
After our first scan at 9 weeks. We were too excited to keep it a secret any longer.
Next time around I will not be announcing at all, we will just tell family and close friends

We waited until after our 12 week scan to make sure everything was ok, as that was our first scan so had no idea if there was a baby in there or not... we then told our close family and friends just after 13 weeks.

DD1 we told our parents at around 6 weeks (found out I was pregnant at 5 weeks), then everyone else after my 12 week scan.
DD2 (overdue) we found out before I was even four weeks! We told our parents and siblings the day we found out, then DH's grandparents a few days later. MIL told us off for telling 'everyone' so early! That p*ssed me off! As for everyone else, DH made a video of DD1 saying mummy is having a baby and put it on FB. I also told my work at 13 weeks because word would have gotten out quick.

Our parents and DH brother and sister were told as soon as we found out but they all knew we were trying for bub. But we've just had 12 wk scans and everything is perfect so we've made it completely public now.

But then by the same token if you don't tell people and something happens then you may end up explaining it anyway.
