When my own team member knew I was epxecting, my boss told them cannot tell the other dept. And they very cute, they tried to "protect" me when ppls play too rough (bangs, hit or knocks onto me). Then ppls start asking why cannot play with me. haha. That's where ppls starts to get curious!
I agree with some of the mummies above on holding back from telling people until confirmed healthy pregnancy with the OBGyn (at least 8weeks). I can imagine what it'll be like - handling all the pity, sympathy, or even misplaced congrats when good news unexpectedly turned into bad news.
I've had two miscarriage at 5weeks (so early, the OBGyn said its a failed implantation), so we're waiting until the Ultrasound scan at Week8 before telling the friends and relatives. For now, its only me and hubby (tho I did hint to my mom that my period is 'overdue'... hehehe).
PS. Currently at W4D4 (very kiasu - I did a beta HCG test at W4D3).
i'm not pantang so I tell most of my relatives & friends once i knew i was pregnant!!
i feel that is better to let the 'whole world' knows so as to enjoy 'privileges' such as carrying too have things etc... ...actually ppl around you will take better care of you & may also share their experiences on what to expect during your pregnancy & some possible solutions 4 you to overcome morning sickness etc
oops.. sorry.. i intro first.... haha.
my LMP was 16 nov.. tested +ve on HPT on 23rd & 24th dec..(both quite faint lines..) have some little symptoms also.. then went to gynae on 27th dec.. but can oni faint lines also..n oni waterbag sac niah..
due to return on 5th jan for another scan..
during xmas party, a friend asked.. i said "no "... he latr asked husband..n husband also said "no"...
cos a lot of ppl at the party.. then dont want whole world to know mah... when ya..we hvnt even went to my gynae..
anyways.. just told my parents + sis and husband's parents + sis yesterday....
jumBobo> yeah....funny ......why ask all of a sudden....or they know all along you all have been planning to have?????
yeah, probably not nice to announce in front of so many pple....but instead of saying NO beta to say "yeah, we are planning to have soon...." at least its a neutral reply. Neither yes nor no...indirect.
I actually dont't get it why people just like to ask. sigh.
btw, how many weeks can see foetus on scan? ^^
around 8 weeks can see a tiny winy 'tadpole'....
CNY is coming...so if ppl ask if im pregnant anot...what shld i say?
by right if pantang, cant say until 1st trimester?
