How do you think your family will react when you tell them you're pregnant? How will DH's family react?

OMG they will be thrilled. My Mom knows everything we're going through, so she's praying every day for us (I don't even know if my Dad knows really). DH's Mom will go through the roof- she doesn't even know we've been trying at ALL- we have always said that we'd start trying at our 5 year wedding anniversary (which is in October). DH's Dad... who knows. I'm sure he'll be happy. The general consensus will be "it's about darn time".

March 2011- February 2012: On BCP due to endometriosis.

March 2012- taking a few months off of BCP and we are TTC naturally.
We will re-evaluate another IVF w/FET try in 2013.

My parents and DH's parents all know we just started trying. My mom and dad are soooo excited. My dad's response was, "Cool, I am about to be 50 and I am ready to be a grandpa!" And my dad was the one person of everyone I was worried about the most. My mom is of course ready...and I know my in-law's will be excited. I just can't wait until it actually happens and we can tell them FOR REAL!!!

THRILLED! Everyone has been waiting for quite awhile for us to have a baby No one (not even my parents, best friend, etc) knows we've been TTC. . . and we're asked about it quite often. I always say "someday....." Everyone will be really excited.

My mom and dad will be estatic...they have been ready to be grandparents since we were old enough to have our own kids...they are having their first ever grand child in July, and are excited for more...my sister and I are both trying (my SIL is PG) but my sister and I are both having issues...so I know they will be more than happy.

I'm not sure about my MIL. When she first found out we were TTC (I told way to many people when we started cause I had no idea it would take so long) she was very scared and nervous. Now that we have been having such an issue, and she has had time to get used to the idea, I think she is looking forward to it. She calls for updates on appointments and what not, and I think is looking forward to being a grandmother. (DH is an only child)

I am sure everyone will be thrilled. Guess I'll find out for sure pretty soon, since I'm probably going to tell both my parents and in-laws on Friday!!!

Everyone has been bugging us about kids for a while now... both families and our friends. Well, our friends have been popping babies like crazy for the past year or so, and now we are pretty much "next" on their list, lol.. either that or they'll start going for seconds LOL. nobody knows we're ttc, but then nobody's been open about their ttc either, so i'm sure people might be suspecting... i thnk everyone will be happy to know when it finally does happen

Both of our families are aware that we are TTC and they will be soooooo excited when it finally happens.

Rachel- Friday as in tomorrow?! Good luck!! How exciting!

I know my family will be very excited! They've been talking about it since we've been married. I really hope DH's family is happy although i'm not 100% sure about them yet. I think his mom will be happy, at least i hope. No one knows we're trying.

DF is 100% Cuban and he's an only child so his mother has been bugging him for children for awhile now, so she will be super excited and will probably start buying as soon as we mention it. She doesn't know we're TTC though. My mom on the other hand knows we're TTC and is a bit nervous because she's worried about me being disappointed time after time like she was, but she's excited. My father on the other hand is 100% Ecuadorian and thinks I'm his little baby, still... so he'll be excited, but it'll take him time to warm up to it. He hasn't even met DF yet because it makes him too sad to realize I've grown up. Unfortunately, DF's dad is no longer alive so he can't be there for it, but he's in our hearts all day long and I'm sure in Heaven he'll be celebrating.

Hopefully it'll happen soon!

I know that my mom will be beyond thrilled she wants this just as much as me possibly even more. I'm sure my dad will be happy for us too (he's not big on babies lol). And this will be DH's mom's 3rd grandbaby in 3 years so its nothing new for her

I think everyone will be thrilled!! We get asked ALL THE TIME! Not a lot of people know that we are TTC right now. DH & I have been together 9 years so I'm sure people are almost 'expecting' to hear something soon

The families will be thrilled! They don't know we're TTC. It's hard to keep it a secret! The only sad thing is our families live about 1000 miles away--so I'm sure they will be bugging us to move closer when it happens!

My mom will be so thrilled words can't even describe it! She has been dying for grandkids since we announced our engagement! My DH's family will be happy but it probably won't be as big of a deal as it will be on my side since his sister has 3 kids already.

Thrilled of course! My mom has four grandkids but none of them are actually biologically related to her so she'll be really excited to actually have one of her kids pregnant! She wont be surprised that we started trying right after the wedding i'm sure... i started getting "when are you having babies" questions at our rehearsal dinner
