Response to I can understand the jealousy...
I had waited to tell a lot of people with even my first pregnancy in my twenties. I knew a lot about fertility and I, being DES-exposed, knew of my risks. Still, I found when my bedrest began, I needed to explain to colleagues (I had gone on a month-long medical leave), and then, I regretted how isolated I felt from people who didn't know, that I wound up telling people. Still, it was probably right for me to take a sober approach (even though I was not that nervous and really blissed out until bleeding began).
When my stepdaughter announced her pregnancy to me, she apologized (as did her husband) saying she realized things could go wrong as they did with me, but that she and her husband decided even if things went wrong, they wanted to have support. I assured her that I wanted to rejoice in her pregnancy no matter how far along and thanked her for telling me.
There is a range of awareness and rectitude is not necessarily comfortable or appropriate for everyone.
Still, yah, would nice to be ignorant of the brutal truths around fertility!! (Sort of...)
