How long do you wait to tell people when you become pregnant?
My first pregnancy, we weren't trying, but we were still super excited, and told right away...then miscarried at about 12 weeks. The next two pregnancies, I told nobody, and miscarried both.
My 4th, and only successful pregnancy, we had been TTC for only a few months, and we were so excited! We told everyone right away. Now our daughter is 29 months old.
This time, we were not trying...and while I'm excited, it's dampened by fear and worry. I got a very faint positive Monday, and a darker one Wednesday. Went for bloodwork today, and the results should be back by tomorrow.
My husband wants to keep it a secret for a while, but I can't decide how long. Do I keep it a secret only until bloodwork confirms that I am indeed pregnant? Or until we see a heartbeat at our first ultrasound, which should be between 6-8 weeks? Or until 13 weeks, when mostly the danger of miscarriage has passed? I don't know if I can hold it in that long.
How did you tell everyone you were pregnant? We bought our daughter a Tshirt that says "Big Sister" on it, and we plan on giving copies to our Moms, then texting the picture to my Dad & Brother, who live out of state, then we'll just post it on facebook for everyone else. Just to see how long it takes everyone to figure it out LOL.
