This one’s totally up to you. Chances are, you’ll know you’re pregnant before you are made aware that you’re expecting multiples, so do what feels right. Some moms-to-be prefer to wait to share the news until they see a heartbeat on the sonogram (around 8 weeks), or at the end of the first trimester (13 weeks), when the babies are less susceptible to miscarriage. Others choose to spill the beans as soon as they test positive for pregnancy, rationalizing that the people they’d tell would be their support network if anything were to go wrong.
