The Bump Baby Registry
Now is the perfect time to start your Baby Registry!START A REGISTRY
Hello ladies! I was wondering your opinions on telling that you are pg. We have told immediate family, but that is it. I am not sure when to "come out" to everyone else. I have had no bleeding for at least a month, and I am feeling sick on and off. Our last US was a week ago, and all looked great! We had a HB of 167, and measured right on.
When did you all tell for each pregnancy? What words of wisdom do you have for me?
Re: need advice on telling
Sounds like you are itching to tell. A strong HB at 8 weeks is a great sign of a healthy. lasting pregnancy.
But, in reality there is still a chance something could go wrong. I miscarried after I saw the HB at 6.5 weeks. Didn't find out I micarried until 12 week ultrasound I had lost the baby weeks before.
That, however, doesn't mean you should not tell anyone.
Speaking from someone who had a miscarriage -- I say in the 1st trimester tell anyone who you would not mind telling about a miscarriage -- or would tell anyway. If you are the talkign type who would just tell people, its not really a big deal.
I am telling family and close friends now. After my next u/s at 9 weeks II will loosen up. After the 1st trimester I will tell work people, etc.

We told everyone pretty much straight after my 7wk us where we saw the hb. If there is a next time I think we would wait till at least the end of the first tri. Last cycle's cp made me very wary of sharing the good news too soon. It's pessimistic and just plain wrong but I don't want to potentially have to tell people that I am not pg anymore.
Honestly, now that you have confirmed the hb more than once, your chances of anything happening have dropped dramatically. And you are only a couple of weeks from the end of you first tri anyway. Have fun telling everyone!
