I had an appointment today. No ultrasound, but heard a heartbeat of 156. I'm 13 weeks today (my ticker is wrong) and all seems to be well. My weight is just bouncing around (down today), but doc says it isn't a big deal yet. Still no baby belly to speak of, which is okay, I guess, because I haven't announced the pregnacy yet. I'm still pretty scared to do that. I told dh I'd love it if I could just call his folks on the way to the hospital and tell them we're going to have a baby. He is starting to get anxious to tell people though.
I can relate to now wanting to tell people. We told our moms, I told my sister and that was it. For the rest of the family and friends we waited until I was 12w and I heard the h/b, I had to tell at work when I was 14w because I was already showing, so it was either them thinking I was getting fat or just tell them that I was pg.
I'm glad you had such a good appointment, I wish I could say that my weight is bouncing around, my just keeps going up and up.
Congrats on a great appointment. I totally understand your apprehension to tell people. I had only told just the necessary people until just a few days ago. I started telling close friends. I think we will wait a little bit longer to tell the "general public". I understand the weight fluctuation thing too -- I've lost 2 lbs since the beginning, but I know it is because I've had morning (and evening) sickness and I just haven't had an appetite at all. I keep expecting all that to change soon. I can't belive the baby in our little bellies is over 3 inches long now. I'm so amazed.
I'm so happy, again, for a great appointment for you. When the time is right to tell people, you will know.
