So when is the best time to tell people that you are pregnant?
Straight away? After 3 months? After the 1st or 2nd scan?
I know many who won’t say anything for the first 3 months simply for the fear of something going wrong.
My thinking is that if something went wrong I would want the support of my family and friends. And if something is going to go wrong it is going to go wrong whether people know about the pregnancy or not.
When I found out I was pregnant I couldn’t keep quiet, purely out of happiness because we had been trying for so long.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not telling the whole world and their neighbour. I have told my closest friends and immediate family. Oh and my blogging friends!
However I have also told work. I usually wouldn’t have told work this early but because I am booked to go onto some courses and also because the contract I work on is intense and target based I thought I should mention that I may be disappearing in approximately 7/8 months.
