    Hello ladies,

    Just a few days back I found out that I was pregnant. We have been TTC for the past 6 months. Me and my husband were really happy and decided to announce the news to our very close family. However my husbands mum posted it on facebook. We didn't know about this until some of our random family friends asked us about the baby. Both of us were so pissed off. We asked her to remove the post but the harm was already done. The whole of town knows this news.

    I have heard that people don't make it public until 12 weeks. I have also heard that it is not good for the baby as well.

    I am only 5 weeks 3 days and haven't had my first scan yet. Fingers crossed

    Oh wow that is so out of order! I would be mad too! Why on earth did she think it was her place to do this?!

    Most people don't announce till 12 weeks cause they want to have had their first scan and be out (or almost out) of the scary first tri. But it doesn't affect your baby whether you tell people or not, so don't worry about that.
    FX all goes well and you have a happy and healthy prengnacy.

    What she did was wrong but it won't hurt the baby
