I am sure most of you have faced the pressures of getting married either from relatives or from your parents. They always say - 'Beta (son/daughter) it's almost time, you should get married at the right age!' Once that is done and dusted as per their wishes, they want to hear the "Good news" soon. 😁
I and my H had planned not to immediately raise a child. We celebrated 2 years anniversary and then we thought it was the right time for having a kid in our lives.
Once pregnancy news was positive, I hesitated to share it with my parents or my in-laws.
For some strange reason, I felt very shy! Even my H was hesitant and not sure about the ways to share this news. After mentally preparing himself for a week, he broke the news to my mother. He could not disclose the same to his father so had to announce the happy news to his sister who acted as our messenger. 🙂
(Trivia - In our tradition, the news is usually not broken to kith and kin until the start of the second trimester. The news is only disclosed to parents and in-laws. This is due to the reason that chances of miscarriage are high in the first trimester.)
Have you or your spouse hesitated or felt shy while sharing your first time "good news"? Do share your experience!
