When to announce your pregnancy? Most people wait at least a little while to announce their pregnancy. Last time I even waited until I was well past the first trimester to make a public announcement. Well, here's my thoughts for this time around:
After a loss, some women wait to announce their subsequent pregnancy until after the point at which their previous loss occurred. Seeing that I had reached my due date with Luke, I don't think it would be possible to wait that long this go around.
Supposedly chances are a lot higher of miscarriage in the first trimester. Well, of course, I don't want that to happen, but if it does happen, I'm not afraid to talk about it. I know some people don't want to share that information or think it would be too difficult to try to share that information. I've had to inform everyone, before, that I didn't get to bring a baby home with me. It's hard. But I know it's something I can do if I have to.
I want to embrace this second pregnancy and love every bit of it (you can read more about that here), so I want people to know about it. I want people to know what I'm excited about. I want people to share in my journey and anticipation. This is obviously a personal choice and will be different for everyone, but I've decided it's no secret so I am happy to share the good news as early as possible!
