Topic: When did you spill the beans about your pregnancy?
When did you announce your pregnancy to the world? Before getting pregnant I thought I could wait until I was 6 months or so along before sharing with the world. While that's still an option, I don't think I have it in me to wait that long.
I'm torn about when to share with my family and larger group of friends.
I'm just under eight weeks. I've had my first ultrasound Friday but will go back in a week for another look. Due to the shape of my uterus my RE could hear the heartbeat with the Doppler but he couldn't get a good look at the baby. He's hoping to get a better look after baby has had a week to grow. I've been thinking about spilling the beans after getting good ultrasound results next week.
I've also been thinking about waiting until I've had genetic screening in my tenth week. My grandmother always recommended waiting until after the 14th week just to be safe. I have to think that prenatal medicine has improved since the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s when she was having children.
When did you tell your family and friends? Did you, or do you, regret telling them when you did? Would you do it differently next time if there is another pregnancy in your future?
