Are you expecting an IVF baby? Learning you are pregnant after experiencing infertility and going through in vitro fertilization is an unexplainable feeling.

Positive Pregnancy Test After IVF
Suffering through infertility, whether it is female factor or male factor, feels impossible at times and can come with a lot of pain. So, when you finally do get pregnant, sharing such a massive life update comes with mixed feelings. It’s a different emotion that is hard to articulate. After unsuccessfully trying to conceive for (in some cases) several long years… the news of a pregnancy comes with with lots of smiles, and a lot of anxiety.
On the one hand, you are beyond THRILLED. You finally got a positive pregnancy test and you can’t wait to share the good news that your family is finally growing. On the other hand, you may be hesitant, because what if?
The thing about infertility is that there is always the question of what if?
What if I can’t have a baby?
What if my fertility specialist doesn’t prescribe the right dosages?
What if they don’t collect enough eggs at my egg retrieval?
What if my embryo doesn’t stick on transfer day?
What if I have a miscarriage?
All valid questions, all valid concerns.
However, if you are looking into ways you can announce your pregnancy, my guess is you feel like you are finally in the clear and can do so without concern.
How to Announce Pregnancy After Infertility
Some mamas keep their infertility journey private, while others share their experience in order to raise more awareness around the topic. If you’re here, you obviously are open to discussing. Whether that be with your family and friends or for anyone who you are connected with on social media.
You may decide to announce slowly, starting with one person or group of people and moving onto the next when you feel ready. Or, you may tell everyone at the same time.
Everyone’s path to pregnancy is a little different, and you shouldn’t feel pressured to do some big baby announcement just because everyone else seems to be doing it. This is about you, your partner, and your rainbow baby… no one else. It’s up to you how you share and with whom.
When is it safe to announce pregnancy after IVF?
There is no wrong answer to this question, because as I said, everyone has taken a different path. And everyone’s comfort level is different.
However, it is reasonable to wonder when it is safe to make your big announcement. The unfortunate truth is that 1 in 4 known pregnancies results in a miscarriage, and IVF warriors are not strangers to that. This most often happens during the first 12 weeks, which is why many consider the second trimester to be the “safe zone.”
While one IVF mama may wait until they reach this safe zone, another may decide to tell those who knew she was going through an IVF cycle that her test was positive right after finding out, or within just a few weeks. Others may show early signs of pregnancy like extreme morning sickness, and may decide that they can’t hide their big news for too long.
The decision is completely up to you and when your due date is.
