Slowly letting the cat out of the bag

So a few people know now. We’re keeping it light, mostly because there’s a lot of concern that we might not be able to carry this baby to term. It’s Alex’s first pregnancy, and we know a lot of people who’ve had trouble. There’s no reason we should have a cakewalk of this.

So why haven’t we told anyone else? We’re mostly concerned about the chance of losing the baby. That’ll be hard on Alex when people ask: “So how’s the baby doing?” Once we’re past either the first prenatal exam on the 25th (if Alex is feeling positive enough about it) or the official three-month mark, we’ll tell the world, of course.
