Yes, be excited. I don't think being excited has anything to do with telling others. I was one who didn't tell peoole until after my 1st trimester... I was private that way.
God can change what people do, behavioral patterns that have been in play for decades. He can change what we do to cope, find comfort, survive conflict, to count. Rahab had done a same old thing for years...then she did something new.

We told people right away, didn't wait for the ultrasound or heartbeat in the dr's office. We aren't fearful people like that. My hubby has a large family, and a HUGE support system. We didn't worry about saying we are pregnant, miscarriage was far from our minds.

SPREAD THE NEWS!!! I'd be shouting from the roof tops if I was finally pregnant after not being able to get pregnant.

Embrace the joy and excitement of this time. The hope and promise of new life are worth celebrating, even if you keep that celebration between you and your husband for now.

Congratulations!

I waited until 15 weeks to make it public and in retrospect it was too long. I worried my entire pregnancy but I think that's typical of first pregnancies. You guys have to do what is right for you in this case. AND DON'T READ THE INTERNET. It's the best way to freak yourself out.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IVE BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST WEEK AND A HALF?! Haha... Too late!!! :P

Seriously though, I think I've googled everything I possibly could that is somewhat relevant to the first trimester. It's been a rollercoaster ride.

We told our immediate family this weekend (parents and siblings) and will be telling others who knew we went for IVF after the lab results come in after Fridays test. After that, we'll wait until after the heartbeat ultrasound to go public.

I just want everything to be okay. After all this effort and heartache, I want a healthy pregnancy, a healthy baby, and to raise a Godly child. Begging God that everything will turn out well.

So far so good. No real symptoms to speak of, so it still doesn't seem "real". I'm at 6 weeks on Monday. I have an ultrasound the following week (7 week ultrasound was requested by the fertility clinic). Reeeeally hoping I get to hear the heartbeat at that ultrasound!!! It would be such a relief!

So happy to hear this update. Don't worry about feeling symptoms I didn't feel any with my first until the end of the first trimester

Well I look like death warmed over and crave red meat. Apparently I don't glow in pregnancy...I turn into a freakin' zombie! Haha. Still no morning sickness, but the fatigue is creeping in more and more. I'm beginning to think perhaps I'm a tad anemic with the above combo of symptoms.

I can't wait for the ultrasound. Desperately hoping to hear baby's heartbeat then!

I get a little freaked out every time you update this thread. I will take a continued confirmed pregnancy, no matter what your symptoms! (Sorry, though. But I know you would too.)
