I am in Canada and since this is number 4 and everything is ok there is no need for one early. I am so excited, it's going to be hard to keep my mouth quiet at work and stuff. I'm going to try my best though.
I've told my friend and my sister (and obviously my husband) but I'm holding off on telling work and everyone else until at least 12 weeks unless things look really good on my u/s on the 30th. It's not necessarily something I'm really looking forward to telling people this time.. especially work, because this will basically be my 3rd pregnancy in 3 years and it was not planned and I feel a bit guilty. I don't think anyone will respond negatively, and I'm in the US so it's not like I'm going to be paid for the time I need to take off form work and I can only take 12 weeks max, I just don't want to have that conversation until I'm sure it's necessary! It's been hard to keep it a secret with my morning sickness, Ive been eating crackers constantly, I feel like everyone knows, but I think it's just in my head. Praying that no one asks me because I don't want to lie to people. What would you do if someone asked you directly?
Polly - Welcome! Hope your bleeding stops and you can join the party!
Ice - Do you mean if they see you not drinking? That's a tough one. I'm a casual drinker (in that, it would be noticeable if I skip a beer at a social event with friends) so I've had this thought before. There's the go to excuses "I'm not feeling well today..." "I'm on a diet..." but those would maybe only work once or twice. My plan is to avoid social hangs with the friends I haven't told until we're at a point where I'm ok telling them. As I said, I already told my super close friends so they're excited to hand me a glass of water instead.
I have zero symptoms so far, except for maybe being a little extra tired in the mornings/evenings. I kind of wish I'd get some morning sickness already!!
When I was pregnant with my first I was at a wedding drinking appletizer from a wine glass. Did the job!
I'm 5 +3 today and got a 3+ on a clearblue digi last night. I'm hoping that's a good sign, as my last MMC never got passed 6 weeks. No symptoms though, except hot flushes that have disappeared, so trying not to enter panic mode. I have a private scan on the 21st when I'll be 7 +5. I couldn't face waiting until 12 weeks! Hope you ladies and babies are keeping well.
