Love Q&A: Trying for a Baby?

Q.

The Nest Q&AShould we tell people we're trying to have a baby?

A.

This is something you and your mate should sit down and discuss. There’s no right or wrong answer -- it’s just a matter of what would be best in your particular situation. Announcing that you’re trying to conceive may open the door to your sex life that you both would prefer remain closed. (Also, think about whether or not you’re ready to talk ovulation with your mother-in-law.) On the other hand, deciding to share the good news could mean that you receive lots of love and support, which may help ease any lingering jitters. Make a list of the pros and cons of telling people you’re trying to have a baby. Then look over both lists and decide what’s right for you.
