I am just over 7 weeks pregnant and this will be my 4th child. I had a miscarriage between children 2 and three so now I am a little gun shy. I don't want to tell anyone until I get through my first trimester and yet at the same time I want to tell EVERYONE! :) I am so conflicted I feel like I should really be cautious just in case but with each day that goes by I get more excited for a new baby... What to do???

Maybe instead of telling everyone you can tell family members you are closest to.. that is what we decided to do. I told my mother and 2 best friends right away and we actually kept it a secret from my husbands family until we were about 4-5 months lol (they ended up guessing I was because I was so sick)... the day we decided we were going to announce to them I was pregnant (13 weeks), his sister decided to blurt out that she was (again).. so it kind of rained on our parade lol

Congrats on the baby to be! :)

I went through this a bit, too. I decided at two months to just tell people because for me personally, I may need my family's support IF I miscarry. I guess I'd rather them know than something happens and I'm sad and they're all thinking "what the hell's her problem? grouch." I understand wanting to keep it, though until "safe". It's a tough one. Congratulations, and I will be praying for a healthy, happy little one for you!
