    Congratulations! What an exciting time for you.

    Your symptoms all sound very normal. I hope they are manageable for you.

    When to tell is a personal decision. Some people want to share their joy and excitement as early as possible. It can be very hard to hide all these positive feelings from people you are close to and who care about you. For some people it is impossible to hide the symptoms from work or people who know them very well.
    Others prefer to wait until a little later in the pregnancy when they feel more secure in their pregnancy and there is a lesser risk of not carrying to term.

    Wishing you an enjoyable pregnancy.

    congratulations,its a very exciting time for you & your family.I think most women tend to wait until after the 12 week scan to tell other people but its up to yourself if you want to tell close friends before then.All your symptoms sound normal to me.i hope the morning sickness wont last too long for you.i hope you have a happy & healthy pregnancy.

    Thanksvery much guys for your wishes, I think i will have to start telling people soon as we have a few family gatherings Eg: weddings, Birthdays…. I hav’nt had an alcohol beverage since i found out and have been telling people Im on antibiotics I cant keep this up Im also excited and want to tell the world. It’s a great feeling knowing that our baby is growing inside my tummy, It’s hard to believe Looking forward to my 1st scan. my Doctor has said it could be at least 12-16 weeks… if anybody has any information or advice for me i would much appreciate it.
    Thanks again x

    I would really recommend the book what to expect when you are expecting,i found it a great book that was able to answer all my questions.it also tells you what happens with your baby & your body with every week of your pregnancy,very informative book.

    Remember to take care of yourself,good diet & pregnancy vitamins & folic acid,good luck!

    Bodyright in Drogheda does pilates classes for pregnancy and they are very good, I went there when I was pregnant last year and found it really nice.

    Glad all going well for you – it is such a special time, enjoy it!!
