I love thinking about when and how to announce. It sure keeps my mind occupied during this freaken dreaded 2ww! Great thread idea Violetsmommy

This will be our third baby, and each time before I have always told my husband straight away that I was pregnant. I remember walking straight out of the bathroom, frer in hand to ask him if he sees the line!? Lol! This time I really want to keep it all to myself for a little bit. Not for too long, will see...

Also won’t be telling family until I am at least 12 weeks. Will see and maybe only tell my mom and dad and brothers so long after the first scan.

My kids are still really small, my son is 3 years old and my little girl is almost 2. So will see how they take the news of a baby in mommy’s tummy. My son will most likely just say “no mammie, I want chippies” and go abput his day haha! To be fair though he is a sweetheart and loves babies, so he might be thrilled!

I have looked online and saw these t-shirts you can buy from amazon, that says in big letters “one should always read the fine print” And then in small letters underneath in the corner it says “I’m pregnant”. So cute! But unfortunately they don’t mail to Australia so i am fresh outa luck on that one. So feel free to use that one if you live in the states. Xx

I will keep on thinking so long...

Baby dust to you all

In TWW right now, and I’ve been wondering how I would tell my husband. Found out I was pregnant with #1 in Sept but had a MMC Oct 31. Anyhow, when I found out back then I was testin almost every other day after AF was due and finally woke up one morning and had a BFP, calmly asked DH if he wanted a cup of coffee, made just him a cup and put a spoon in it that I had bought a week before just in case lol the spoon said “we’re having a baby” with little baby feet on it. He stirred the coffee then got confused because I never leave the spoon and he took it out and saw the words and immediately started smiling like a fool and kept asking “really?” Over and over. I felt like that was such a great way to break the news of our first. Now gotta think of something new just in case!

My husband and I have been trying for years - he’s always squinting with me from about 8dpo so he knew straight away when we got pregnant. Our parents know too as we’ve had a few losses in the past and I was in hospital Christmas Day with this one, so we told them rather than make excuses about cancelling plans. I’m currently 6 weeks and just hoping it sticks but we’ve known how we’d announce it for a while - I don’t have Facebook or anything but he does, and we are both really into heavy metal and rock music - his favourite band is iron maiden, and we brought an iron maiden baby grow when we previously pregnant (sadly ended in miscarriage). When we announce we’ll take a picture of the baby grow and say - new metal head arriving in August! We might even put our dog in an iron maiden t shirt and announce he’s going to be a big brother with the baby grow next to him. Super cringe but I don’t want to post a scan pic as having been through such a horrible long journey I know how hurtful it can be to see one splashed on social media. I quite want to say something about our journey and infertility, but it’s hard to know what’s appropriate and what’s overkill. I just don’t want to make anyone else feel sad - and after three miscarriages and four years (plus we fell pregnant naturally this month, having only had full sex three times because I was ill, after we stopped fertility treatment in November, and were about to take a year break so I could start a new job without maternity leave available - so this really is a miracle baby), if this is really our turn, I think knowing that might make someone else hopeful and give them a bit more strength? It’s difficult!

I know what you mean about seeing pregnancy announcements splattered everywhere. I had a couple friends who got pregnant around the same time I got pregnant with Violet, but I miscarried and they didn't. I had to block both of them from my facebook because I couldn't handle it. Nothing personal, just that I couldn't look at it every day, you know? But to be honest, when I see an announcement from someone who has struggled with infertility and losses and endo and all the things I have, or some of them, etc... that just makes me so happy, because I know how badly I want it, I know what it is to go through all that, and seeing someone who has been through so much get their miracle just makes my heart happy. Sending loads of positive vibes for your miracle!

With my first one I told my BF while he was driving haha. We always would joke if I said I was hot, cold, tired etc... He would say uh oh maybe your pregnant and I would laugh and say yeah ok. Well there was a few days in a row where I felt odd and just everything was annoying me I thought it was working full time and going to school full time and a co worker says you need to find tike to chill or your pregnant and we laughed. Yeah I was so told BF in the car when I said well I know why my nerves have been so bad and he says what your pregnant and started to laugh and I didn't he stopped watching the road I had to make him stop the car and told him yeah. He kept saying really and hugging me.

When it happens I'm not sure how ill tell my BF but I already have a onsie in my cart on Amazon that says oops they didn't it again coming in 2018. So let's hope she is coming in 2018
