    @ExcitedScaredBee:  I think if you’re worried at all, maybe you should wait the extra day. I know how crazy hard that will be, but I’m sure he’ll have some exciting stories to tell and he’ll want to have that moment. You’re a good person for considering his feelings and I think he would appreciate it if you let him have one more day to bask in his happiness about his wedding/honeymoon. 🙂 Come Tuesday, I’d say IT’S ON, GIRL! haha

    I don’t know on this one….guys are different than girls on this sort of stuff.


    I don’t think he’d really hold any grudge against you sharing your news on the day he returns from his honeymoon.

    I also agree with the PP though, I am currently 13w6d and still haven’t said anything to my coworkers. I definitely recommend waiting until at least 12 weeks.

    I don’t think he’d really look at it as you stealing his thunder. I don’t think guys really think about it like that. However, as PP have said, I’d wait until 12 weeks.

    As someone who has had to “un-tell” people I was pregnant multiple times, I would wait until 12 weeks, no question. I’m not saying snything bad will happen, and of course if the u/s looks good at 10 weeks, your chances are great, but still…it doesn’t hurt to wait a little while longer.

    I would also wait until 12 weeks and then tell. Then you don’t have to worry about it.

    I really think everyone should always wait 12 weeks.

    I’m not trying to scare you, but we recently had TWO situations in my office where one of the ladies announced her pregnancy too early than lost it. Same thing happened to a guy I work with too.

    Was so sad for the parents, and uncomfortable for the rest of us.

    I would wait until 12 weeks. Not saying anything will happen, but if something did it would generally be in the 12 weeks.

    I don’t think guys care about that kind of stuff, but I’d probably wait til Tuesday anyway because I’m sure your co-workers will be asking him a million questions.

    As long as you’ve heard the heartbeat, I don’t see any reason to wait til 12 weeks. Your risk of miscarriage at this point is less than 1.5%. I’d only wait the 12 weeks if I hadn’t had an u/s and heard the heartbeat.
