Not telling my parents I'm pregnant until 3 months

Posted by Sailorgirlfriend.com on Monday, June 24, 2013 Under: Motherhood
Ever since we found out I was pregnant, my husband and I decided to not tell our parents until the first trimester is over. I've heard of so many stories where people had miscarriages and the biggest risk is during the first trimester. Since I've never been pregnant before, I don't know what to expect from my body and to save everyone future heartaches and ourselves some possible public pain, we decided to wait. I know my husband's mother have had 2 miscarriages but I'm not sure about my mom. 

It's hard to hide it when people ask "what's new" over the phone. Because we're not telling our parents, we're not telling our friends either to be fair. I'm 29 years old so I'm not at the at-risk age yet but since I've heard of so many stories, I just feel that it's better to be careful. I've only told my best friend and that's it. I had to tell her because we were going on a vacation together and she was expecting me to drink some alcohol to celebrate. She was going to figure it out so I had to tell her I'm not drinking anyway. I literally found out I was pregnant the day we were traveling.

I'm about 6 weeks along so it'll be another 6 weeks until my 3 month mark, so it's not that faraway from now.

I'm also a bridesmaid for 2 weddings in 4 months and have not told the brides yet. Fortunately, I have not bought the dresses yet because I will definitely be gaining a lot of pregnancy weight and showing by then. I haven't told the brides yet but I will tell them in 6 weeks when I hit my 3 month mark so they'll know I won't be able to party with them for their bachelorette party. Haha. The sacrifices of motherhood right? 

I'm ecstatic to be pregnant for the first time. I'm tired all the time though and since we recently moved to a different state, I've been unemployed and to tell you the truth, I don't know I would manage with a job while being this tired. I just feel like a 300 pound gorilla walking sluggishly around the house when I'm only 120 pounds right now. 

I don't have much of an appetite either and thankfully I don't have morning sickness, although my sense of smell is so sensitive. 

Did you guys suffer from morning sickness at 6 weeks?
