We’ve decided, at 15 weeks, to start sharing our news. I’ve been incredibly reluctant to tell anybody that we are expecting a baby because I don’t think I am actually EXPECTING it to happen. I can’t let myself believe it because I feel to let my guard down will open me up to the possibility of hurt when it does go wrong again. As my stomach swells it is becoming more obvious and soon everybody will be aware but I just feel very protective of our secret and keen to keep it between my husband and I. Telling people makes it scarily real. There will be no announcement or phone calls but we will mention it to our friends when we see them and tell them not to make a big deal of it. Scary stuff.
