We finally told our families. It was kind of hard to keep it a secret - my inlaws figured it out a few weeks ago. DH's 4 siblings started looking at my belly, even with clothes to hide it, and asking questions (they are the nosiest, gossipiest bunch of people) and I felt bad that DH's entire family knew and not a single person in my family and none of my friends knew. So I told my parents two weeks ago and my siblings this week. Not a warm reception. My parents were stunned and concerned for both my health and that of the baby's and my brother who has been trying for 2 years (he and his wife are both in their mid-40s) were outright angry. My oldest brother, who I am closest to, has been calling every few days to see how I am, but didn't express any kind of joy or happiness.

I told my Aunt, who is like a second mother and she was very happy as were my friends. I guess I will have to talk to them instead of my family about it.

It does feel good to not have to pretend it's not happening.
