When we first found out we were pregnant, I wanted to tell the world. It was so hard to keep it secret when I was just.so.dang.excited.
Then the worries kicked in, and I was glad that nobody knew. It was a secret for me and my husband (and our doctors) and somehow more precious.
At 8 weeks, I broke down and told my BFF and office-mate. At 10 weeks, I told my parents. And finally, after our 12-week ultrasound, we’ve started spreading the word.
And it’s not getting any easier! Yes, it’s a relief to tell the people that I am closest with, who love me and my husband, and who will love BabyBug to pieces. But it’s just a little overwhelming that if something were to go wrong, we’d have so many people to update. Before, I felt insulated. Now, I feel like I might be jinxing things.
We’ve asked our friends and family to keep the news off of Facebook and Twitter, and to keep it to themselves. I’m just not quite ready to go global…although I am excited for the world to know. Maybe when I’m really showing? Or have another listen to the heartbeat?
P.S. Last full week of the first trimester!
