Your Pregnancy is Personal

When you first find out you’re pregnant, your feelings can range from excitement and happiness to apprehension and fear – it’s an emotional time! The next step is deciding who you’re going to tell, and when.

She doesn’t want them to think she got pregnant just to be part of the group – it had nothing to do with them.

Amy’s reply assures her that it’s really not such a big deal, and that she can announce it whenever and however she likes.
