hugs lizzyq. Go feed yourself something yummy and nourishing and think happy thoughts. I woke up this morning because of painful cramping, but I realized soon afterward that it was just gas
Anyone else not feeling like telling anybody? I thought I would be bursting at the seams trying not to tell, but now that it's real I like having a little secret. We're seeing Dh's family for thanksgiving and the news will come out then. I've been told impressive stories about MIL's sense for pregnant women and I'm curious to see if she will know when she sees me. If not we'll just announce. And we'll probably call my family with the news soon after. I kinda wish Thanksgiving was a little farther away, but I'm not too worried about it.
People at school and work I feel differently about. I just don't want a bunch of attention and nonsense over if I should really be pushing that piano around, dancing, lifting my arms above my head etc. I'm also not looking forward to having to debate my choices regarding birth. Plus, I'm not even 5 weeks yet, it's very possible that the pregnancy won't stick and I'm sure that news will be even less fun to tell. At this point, I'd rather just tell a few friends and let everyone else notice as my belly grows.
Dh was really surprised to hear how I felt about it. He never considered that people may treat me differently or how I'd feel if we miscarried and had to tell everyone. As far as arguing birth choices he's never been shy about his opinions and thinks it's silly of me to be. I'm not afraid anyone's going to change my mind but I don't want to listen to everyone else's fears and horror stories. He wants to tell his one sister that won't be at Thanksgiving the news in a couple of days. I wish he wouldn't, but I don't really feel like I have full veto power. It's his news too, and she can keep her mouth shut until we see the rest of the family.
So, when are you telling? How do you feel about it?
