So I've just found out I'm five weeks pregnant (for the first time, as will become obvious), which I'm very happy about. But it's bringing up lots of new stuff which, as an inveterate planner, I'm finding hard to deal with.
1) planning to go places. I have the chance to go to a weekend conference soon, which will be good, but if all goes well I will be 8 weeks then and will be even more wiped out than I am now, and possibly vomiting everywhere. The trip is totally optional bit is something I wouldn't be able to do for a while with kids. I'm curious to hear the strategies others have adopted in similar circumstances.
2) who to tell? If I make it to the 12-week scan I'll go public. For the moment I've told my mother, and am tempted to tell my best friend. Other than that I'd rather keep it to myself & my husband but I share a small office with five guys who might notice if I start throwing up.
