So..I'm new here. :) I got my BFP last Monday....according to my LMP, I should be 6 wks and 3 days. I have just been lurking around here for the past week because the last time I was preggo I miscarried at 14 weeks...I guess I'm feeling like I don't want to jynx it? Crazy...I know. Well, I could use the support and someone who just gets it, so I'm posting. :)
I currently have a 8 year old step-son and 7 year old daughter. This will be my DH's and my first baby together. We are excited, but again, with my previous history, we're kinda leary. I have only told 3 very close friends and his mother. Anyone else not telling people for awhile? It's SOOOO hard to keep it a secret, but I just can't shout it to the world just yet....still pretty scared.
I look foward to getting to know you ladies and sharing this wonderful journey.
Yes...I guess people were just awkward instead of supportive before and it just makes it hard for me to share it this time. :/ I hate feeling this nervous about it too - sigh. I'll probably tell everyone around 12 weeks - if I can wait that long. I start to "show" (bloat rather lol) very early so I might not have a choice! lol
CaliforniaDream87:Welcome and congrats!
I'm so sorry for your previous loss.
I,too,will not be announcing.
Just DH and my mother know. Because of our loss it just makes more sense for us to wait until second trimester. I completely know how you feel.
FX for a sticky baby for us all!
We have the same due date! :)
Welcome and congratulations!
I am very sorry for your loss.
We are waiting until the 2nd tri to tell people. I kinda like the secret.
