We just announced on facebook!
At a little over 7 weeks, I know to some/many it may seem too early still, but I think it is all about when is the right time for YOU.
With our first loss, everyone and their grandma knew that we were expecting. And for me, it made it so much easier during the grieving process. For others, I know that might not be true.
So anyway, we decided not to wait too overly long this time either.
After hearing our little one's heartbeat yesterday, we felt confident to go ahead and announce it to the world!

Here is our facebook announcement

Cute announcement
I came out early after our first ultrasound at 6.3 weeks. I had a lot of people supporting me through my loss and knew they would be excited to find out we were expecting. It feels nice to clear the air and have so many people happy for you.

Exactly! So many people were still praying for us and still devastated for us because they knew how badly we wanted a baby. I couldn't make them wait any longer. I needed to celebrate it with everyone! And God forbid something went wrong, I need their support..and if nothing goes wrong, I need their encouragement!

Thanks everyone!!

Cute Announcement! I'm not that creative. I just announced today at 35 weeks. I just haven't been able to bring myself to tell anyone yet, but since my shower invites went out this week to friends and relative who didn't know, I figured it was time.

Everyone is different in how they feel about it. My DH outed me earlier than I would have liked (about 8 weeks), but it worked out well looking back.
I love your announcement! So pretty!

Congrats on your wonderful ultrasound announcement Mrs. Hopeful! How long did you wait to TTC again after your first loss? So happy for you!! I know this forum is for moms who are pregnant again after a loss but I noticed that your due date is only a day apart from my former due date of 10-10-14. . I got pregnant at 47 years old (found out a wk after my bday) after TTC for 6 months. A week later, we made an announcement on FB and lots of people rejoiced with us. Now, I'm trying to get the courage to share with them my news of loss. Got my ultrasound result last Wednesday but only found a small sac with no baby. Then I started to miscarry last Thursday and still having symptoms up to now. I feel devastated but God is holding me together. I'm surprised by how much I'm grieving a baby I've never met. I'm so inspired by your post! Hubby and I will TTC again for our first child together when my body is ready. I had a daughter when I was 20. Praying for a happy and healthy pregnancy for you! Please keep us updated!

Thank you so, so much ladies! So happy to have this amazing support from all of you.

bellajane, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I can truly understand the difficulty with finding the courage to tell everyone, but as I mentioned, it was a huge comfort for me going through our loss to have so many people that knew and could be there for us. So I hope you are able to find that same comfort. I am so happy for you that you are also finding some peace in your faith. That is really something that helped to hold me together as well. God has a plan for us all and we just have to hang in there and see what it is. Even though you never met your child, he or she was still your baby, and you were still their mommy. Let yourself grieve and feel every emotion. Never feel weird about feeling any of it. It is a real loss of a real baby and a real life. I am so happy that you were able to find some inspiration in our story. I have been down to some of the darkest places I've been to in my life while going through this TTC journey, and there were times I never thought things would get better. So just hang in there, and know that it's just time. It's just a matter of being patient. It will come!
After our first loss, my husband and I kind of went against our doctor's advice and did not use protection the first month afterwards. We ended up experiencing a chemical pregnancy. After that, we decided to take a month off. I would recommend taking at least a month just to let your hormones figure themselves out and to let yourself heal emotionally. I thought me and my body were ready, but looking back, I don't think I was. I know a month can seem like a long time when you want something so badly, but in the long run, it isn't very long. Just take that time for yourself. At least that much. Good luck to you. I will be praying and keeping my fingers crossed for you!
