I recently found out that I am pregnant. I had a very successful first pregnancy which resulted in a gorgeous daughter, and a second pregnancy, which I found out was not viable at six weeks. I am dying to tell everyone about this third pregnancy, but I also don’t want to be embarrassed if it turns out to be another chemical pregnancy, and have to explain myself… again.
There seems to be a real taboo about talking about the pain of chemical pregnancies and miscarriages, with the dashed hopes and dreams about the baby to be and I’m really hoping to overcome this.
Is there an appropriate way to say, “We’re pretty sure we’re expecting, but it’s still very new! Let’s share the joy and halve the pain if it’s another chemical pregnancy or a miscarriage?” — Barbara
