I have been asked this question a lot recently, as people find out we're pregnant. I never really know how to answer.
Yes, this will be the first child I give birth to.
Yes, this is the first time I've made it through the first trimester.
No, this is not my first pregnancy, but hopefully it will be the first to go full-term.
Usually I just say "yes," but I've always been pretty open about our previous loss, so depending on the person and the mood and situation, I sometimes go into a little more detail. I never want to make anyone uncomfortable for asking, but, it's always a bit weird for me to just flat out say "yes, this is my first."
I just don't know...is it too much to go into detail? Or, do I simply say "yes" and bite my tongue?
