  • I had to tell ppl when I first found out. I was in the Air Force and I also worked in the hospital. So ppl already knew when I was like 8 weeks. It kind of sucked.

  • With My first daughter I didnt wait I was 2 months when we told everyone.But yeah some people usually wait till the 3rd month cause it is a lil less likely to result in a miscarriage...Congrats!Goodluck :)
