Just wondering at what gestation others chose to announce their pregnancy following a stillbirth. We lost our daughter at 38+2 in 2014 and will be 12 weeks along on Wednesday. I know generally people will announce after a positive 12 week scan as the risk of losing bub drops dramatically, but what did you do when you knew 12 weeks was no longer some magical safe point?
Initially I had planned on waiting until 20ish weeks, but this is bub #3 and I hadn't lost any weight from my previous pregnancy so I am already quite visibly showing. It is so obvious in fact that my father asked me on the weekend whether I was pregnant and choosing not to share the news yet.
I have only told one person, as has DP and we both agreed that our son deserves to hear the news next before anyone else. I really don't want to get his hopes up again only to have to tell him we can't bring his baby home.
The other dilemma is that my parents are heading overseas and will not be back until a couple of weeks after bub will be evicted, I know that they will want to be here when little one arrives and so realise they may want to change their booking as soon as possible.
I'm starting to realise I may have to let people know sooner rather than later, so interested to hear how others decided when the right time was to share their news.
