If you’ve been hanging out here a while, you know that I tend to obsess and worry about things long before it’s necessary for me to do so. Which leads me to spending a lot of wasted time thinking up hypothetical scenarios that often don’t ever end up happening.
But, it’s what I do.
Which is why, even though I’m not yet pregnant, I’m already worrying and trying to decide on when I’m going to spill the beans.
Doesn’t help that AMP and I have different views on the matter.
I want to share the news with my immediate family and closest friends right away. These are the people who know about my miscarriage – and the people I would tell if I miscarried again.
I know that if I miscarry again – this time it’ll devastate me. It hurt so much the first time and I didn’t even really realize I was pregnant – imagine this time, when we’ve been trying and waiting. I’ll make it through – but it’ll be oh so hard.
But, should I let that fear keep me from sharing my news?
Also, I don’t want to be ‘found out’ and miss out on surprising people my way. I have all these plans in my head on how to tell my parents and my siblings – and I don’t want it ruined by them guessing before I tell them.
With other people – I think I’d try to wait to as close to 12 weeks – mostly for AMP’s sake… Because I know he’d rather we wait. But, I think after waiting so long to try and then trying for 6+ months, that it’ll be hard for me to keep it to myself.
I know it’s silly – but I think about these things.. and maybe obsess about it.
When did you share your news with family and friends? How did you do it?
