19The "What Ifs"
One of the biggest concerns expecting mothers have when announcing is the risk of losing the pregnancy. Chances are someone might see our announcement, but they might not hear that we lost it which would make for some awkward and unpleasant conversations. Some people would rather avoid those chances.
On the fli
side, we might want to talk about it. We might want that emotional support from loved ones or people who have been in a similar situation. In the United States, the risk of losing a pregnancy is between 10 and 25 percent according to TheBump.com which means it's more common than we think. Talking about it can be a good way to work through it, and we might also find some comfort in knowing that we aren't alone.
