I almost spilled the beans today

I was talking to my mother on the phone on the way home from work. I came soooo close to telling her about the baby. I want to .. but at the same time I am terrified that if I start telling people that I will jinx the baby and something will go wrong.

I've been in your shoes so I get to say this to you...your NOT going to jinx the baby. :) Are your close with your mom? I mean with all the horrible stuff you've just been through maybe some support around this pregnancy would be good? Call your doctor and tell them your worried and tell them about your history. It might get you extra appts to ease your mind. Thats what I did and it helped me A LOT. I'm really sorry about your grandfather. Take care! Kym

I agree with Kym, you cannot jinx this pregnancy. It is either meant to be or not. Of course, I completey know how you are feeling, too! I have remind myself often that I'm not going to ruin this pregnancy through thoughts or deeds. Hang in there. Maybe telling your mom is a good idea--she can offer you the support that you need right now.

SPILL the beans girl!
your family needs some good news right now!!
I know your feelings and thoughts, but I swear, I felt them too!
I decided that I wanted every second of this pregnancy celebrated JUST in case! And I think you need to think that too!
IF something happens, they all love you so much and would LOVE to be there for you. I've had a loss where we didn't tellanyone until AFTER the loss...it sucked BIG time!
TELL them! Make a big happy day out of it!
(sorry about the !!!'s...just a BAD habit! hee hee)
