I honestly get kind of irritated when people announce it so early, as most of my friends have had miscarriages and I would hate to see anyone have to tell people they lost their LO's. Its very upsetting for me to see that happen to people as a couple of them have had to go back on their facebook to tell people they lost the baby. I feel its smart to wait. I wish I would've waited another week before I announced it to people, but it happens. I just don't want to see someone so hurt again, it breaks my heart.



I told close friends weeks before I announced it to the world, which its nice to have some confidants when you don't have a ton of people to talk to about it. But its everyone's choice, I just know I hate seeing the heartbreak and feeling a little of my own.

When is your due date? *Sticky Dust*



I didn't announce my pregnancy on Facebook until I was around 16 weeks. All of of friends who are due in late September are announcing their pregnancy too. I'm waiting until I'm over 12 weeks to announce because I have low progesterone.

I'm rather blunt and told one of my friends to be careful and take very good care of herself, she had a miscarriage I think it was last year and announced her pregnancy when she was I want to say 4 or 5 weeks pregnant? I told her I would have never said it so early because of the risks. Its very hard to hold in, but by 14-15 weeks people that didn't know were asking me questions anyway. I think its smart when people wait to tell the majority of people, as long as they have someone there that is able to be a shoulder to lean on if something does happen. Those close friends can help out so much.



How far along are you now?

I have the most abnormal cycles that I almost called a BS on the ER doctor that told me I was pregnant since I was only a day or so late when I found out. I've been late on all my periods 75% of the time. Its very frustrating when they're screwy.

Don't stress yourself out, focus on keeping yourself healthy. Stress isn't good for either of you. Keep positive as much as you can (I can't say I've been the most positive person during this pregnancy but I try). :D

yea its hard though.. my baby was born at 38 weeks and was completely healthy and then died a few days later from SIDS, they never found anything that caused her death even after 2 months. Im terrified of having a miscarriage now even though Ive never had one!

It must be hard, I haven't had to deal with it as I'm pregnant with my first. I can't imagine how hard it must be. I have panicked quite a bit since I found out I was pregnant since I've got some unresolved health issues and a family history of having issues conceiving and carrying. I've had a couple scares but my daughters still going strong. I'm not very good at helping people with loss of their children, but I try. I just personally believe I can't understand since I'm not your nor have I been through the situation.



Sometimes I just want to thump for people telling me to be positive, but its really the best thing you can do for yourself and the baby. Take care of yourself and I hope you have some sort of confidant so you can vent or anything you need. :)

Tell.me.about it!! I will be announcing after my 12 weeks scan (its our first one here in the uk) so we know baby is ok and we're out of the risky period, However I will probably hold.it.off facebook as I will tell all my.family firsta nd it can be hard to contact then.sometimes. Ive had 2 mc and would.never ever think about telling before then!! I had a friend who announced at 6 weeks and it feels like shes been pregnant forever now x
