I am curious... I know there is that common 12 week mark you always hear about, but at what time do you all tell family and friends that you are expecting? I didn't tell with my first(I was young and scared, just waited until people guessed), and I told well after the first twelve weeks with my second, and only to explain why I was moving in with my DP abruptly at the time. This is my first really "stable" situation while pregnant, and I don't feel like I need to hold back like I did with my other babes. I am excited, and I want to share with the people that I know would be happy for us. But I am only a little over five weeks along... Is that jumping the gun? Also, there's alot going on in my family regarding babies... My little sister is pregnant, due in Nov. I feel like I am stomping on her territory, she was trying for her's(mine is a surprise). The sis just above me just lost a baby she really wanted(three prior abortions), and my oldest sister just had an abortion she thought she would never have(5 kids, 4 dads already and living with friends). What would you do?
