Hi I just joined this site like yesterday and I'm glad that I found this forum. A little about me... I've had two miscarriages in the last 1.5 years and after the last one it took us a while to get pregnant again, but we finally are!! YAY! I'm due in January but to be honest I'm not sure when I had two different u/s already and they both said two different things lol... so my best guess is around the 16th. Anyhow, I guess I'm just so nervous with this pregnancy. I'm just really hopping that I make it this time. We really haven't told anyone yet (although my son did, lol, he ended up ratting me out to my sister telling her that mommy has a baby in her tummy, but she is keeping our secret). We plan on telling everyone after our drs appointment on the 27th.... that way I'll definately be past 14 weeks, when I had lost the last two. Well I guess I just wanted to introduce myself and share my story a bit. I was also wondering if you other moms being pregnant choose to wait to tell people too.

Congrats and welcome! You are in the right place, the women her are wonderful, so supportive, so understanding. Well I can tell you that with this pg I told my mom almost right way, I told my sister after our first u/s and the rest of the family when I was 12w.

Hi- Congrats on your pregnancy! This is a great place-- it has been so helpful through this pregnancy so far for me. We haven't shared with anyone-- well my mom knows but that is because she is my mom and I swear she just "knows stuff!" Anyway, the 27th is just around the corner. Good luck and come here as much as you need. The ladies are so supportive/helpful.

Hi and welcome to PAL! We had a loss last October and had JUST told our three sons about the PG. It made the loss hard on all of us. This time, we waited until 12 weeks to tell them. My sisters and some of my in-laws knew a bit earlier, but, that was just because I was so sick all of the time If waiting makes you feel more comfortable, then, by all means hold off on telling everyone. After weeks of not telling people, I personally felt that I would tell the people I was closest to. I figured that if I experienced another loss, I would tell them anyway. So, I figure that they should share in my joy, my fear, and everything (even if that meant the sorrow of another loss). I think everyone's different. It's definitely up to you.
Congratulations on your PG! I hope you're feeling great and you're not worrying too much. Worrying is just a part of PAL. Feel free to vent to all of us and jump right in and start posting. The support you will receive from the great women on this board is fantastic. I look forward to getting to know you better! Welcome again!
Kelty---Mom of 4 boys!
