Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I've only known for a week, and I'm having trouble keeping quiet. I can't believe I have to stay mum for another two months!
I work with immigrants from a conservative country which correlates a woman's worth with motherhood, and almost every day one of my clients will place her hand on my stomach and ask, "Baby?" because they're dumbfounded I've been married for three years with no children (by choice). I'm looking forward to the expression on their faces when I finally say yes.
Lurking from 2nd tri....it's definitely hard to hold it in, but it's usually for the best. I have seen countless people blurt it all over FB as soon as they pee on the stick and then they end up losing the pregnancy and have to deal with people asking them for months how the pregnancy is going. That is certainly not to say that anything will go wrong, but the 1st tri is definitely the most delicate. I too, waited to tell immediate family until after our first appt (around 8 weeks) then we told friends/remaining family after our NT scan at 12 1/2 weeks. GL! Try to stay calm and patient....I PROMISE you the weeks go by faster than you can imagine!
I'm feeling the same way! We have an appointment on Monday to hear the heartbeat and I will be 11 weeks. I really feel like if everything goes smoothly I don't care who knows. It will just make this easier!
We told our parents and some very close friends already. I haven't told work yet, but since my job can be very physically demanding, I may need to let them know sooner than later. Although there is always that risk and a lot of people wait until the second trimester for that reason, I personally do want the support of the closest to me for better or worse. Either way, I can't wait until I am further so I can shout it from the rooftops that I am gonna be a mommy!
A happy and healthy 9 months to all!
