What To Do At 3rd Month of Pregnancy?
Now that your risks of miscarriage have significantly decrease, some people would choose to celebrate and tell the world about it.
It is time for letting your friends, families, and even your boss know that you are expecting.
You can throw a small house party or a simple post on your social media.
In the other hand, if you don’t feel like telling anyone about it yet, but still want to talk about it and exchange knowledge and experiences, you can try joining prenatal classes or online parental forums where you can meet other preggers like yourself.
