How many weeks did you wait before announcing your pregnancy to your family?

How far along were you before you announced your pregnancy to your family? If you had some trouble conceiving, did you wait longer?

I'm not telling my family until week 20. I'm currently 6w6d. I won't tell them soon because: 1. I'm 20 and am a little scared. 2. I've had a miscarriage before so I want to wait until I'm out of the 1st trimester.

It's the Clear Blue Easy Digital with Conception Indicator. It shows approximately how long ago you conceived. If you conceived more than three weeks ago, it only shows a 3+. Give it a shot! It sounds like you are pregnant. Good luck to you!

A "chemical pregnancy" is just another term for an early miscarriage. Many times this happens without the woman even knowing she is pregnant. Usually the reason for this is because of abnormalities with the developing fetus or due to the embryo not implanting properly within the womb lining itself. Your doctor will probably advise you to wait for 2 - 3 months before trying again to conceive as it can take a while for your hormone level to return to its normal level. Usually it takes longer if you miscarry further along. So given the fact that you were only a few weeks along it should only be a week or two. Try not to worry.... it is perfectly normal and happens more often than a lot of people realise as it often occurs very early on after conception and most people assume it is their period but a little late. I have had this happen myself and have gone on to have a perfectly healthy baby since then so it does not mean that anything is wrong with you. Hope this helps and good luck =)

There are no more risks based upon interracial children. My suggestions? If you are on the pill you should go off it now and use other forms of birthcontrol until you are ready to conceive. Go ahead and start taking prenatal vitamins and a folic acid supplment. If you don't eat healthy START. You should also get plenty of exercise, walking is great especially when you are pregnant so start now if you don't already. If you smoke, stop now. If your husband smokes ask him to quit. Make your home a no smoking zone to everyone who comes over. Nothing wrong with having a drink now and again, but limited and once you are pregnant NEVER! Once the child arrives, if you can breastfeed him/her, you will never regret it! Now, stop stressing about it. A great source for child development is Dr. Sears. I'd recommend purchasing his books. Also, take your concerns to your OB/GYN and start shopping for a good pediatrician.

A big sign is missing your period. Other possible causes of missing your period are travel, fatigue, stress, illness, extreme weight gain or loss, going off the pill and breastfeeding. Morning sickness is also another biggie. It usually occurs 2-8 weeks after conception. I started feeling slight waves of nausea around the time my period was due, obvioously it didn't arrive because I'm 13 weeks pregnant! Other possible causes of nausea are food poisioning, emotional stress and a variety of illnesses. Frequent urination is another sign some women have. It usually rears its ugly head as early as 2-3 weeks after conception. Other possible causes are urinary tract infection, stress or diabetes. Tingling, tender and swollen breasts is a very common pregnancy symptom. It can occur as early as a few days after conception, I know that was the case for my two pregnancies! Other possible causes are birth control pills and impending menstruation. Another sign is darkening of the aerola (area around the nipple) and elevation of the tiny glands around the nipple. This usually happens later in the first trimester, although I noticed it around the same time I got a positive pregnancy test, when my period was due. Other possible causes of this are hormonal imbalances or the effect of a prior pregnancy. A big sign for me was blue and pink lines under skin and later on abdomen. For me, I found that my breasts were the first to look like a road map with blue veins, about 5 days after conception. After that my thighs, hands and feet started to show veins as well. Later on, purple veins appeared under my armpits, on my eyelids and on my cheeks - I have very light skin. This usually occurs later on in the first trimester. Other possible causes are hormone imbalance or the effect of a prior pregnancy. Food cravings can drive pregnant women insane! They usually appear in the first trimester. Other possible causes include poor diet, stress and impending menstruation. A big sign for me, was tiredness. I used to almost be an insomniac, and about a week and a half after conception, I struggled to keep my eyes open past 8.00pm. I also started to have 'grumpy pregnant lady' mood swings! I'm going to include the link to a trying to conceive forum that I think you might find useful. It's full of supportive women with boundless knowledge about these issues. I learnt so much there that I doubt I would have learnt otherwise.
