I'm really starting to pop and it's only a matter of time (short time) before people I see every week know my secret. Well I was worried they might say something on FB about it before I had a chance to announce to family, which I was planning to do when they came for Thanksgiving. So after my appointment yesterday and since things are going well (plus I told one of my sisters) I figured it was time to tell my close family. So I made an announcement to just my family on FB last night. They were very excited. There was a lot of replies and a few phone calls. My sister told me I had better call my second mom before she spilled the beans. When I called 'mom' she was surprised, but really excited.
So we're pretty much out of the closet

yay!! So glad that you told your family and that this pregnancy is going so well for you. It makes things seem so real when you finally starting telling people. I'm still not out of the closet on facebook but of course anybody that sees me knows I'm pregnant so most of my friends and family already know any way.

Aw! Isn't it nice to be "out"? We told most of our family last week. We did not get a warm reception from many of them. I'm glad you got a nice response!

I'm not saying anything on FB. I just feel weird about it. KWIM?

Yep, it's nice not to have to not say anything when I talk to family. I think I'll have to tell our girl scout troop leader soon (maybe tomorrow) because I'm co-leader and we have camping, cookie sales, etc that I might not be able to help as much this year.
I'm so sorry you didn't get a better reception. Yeah I don't know that I'll put anything on FB for a long time (if ever - lol).

I bet It's nice not feeling like you have to hide anything anymore. Well, from your family at least

Yeah pretty sure the rest of the people I see weekly will know this week. DH looked at me yesterday and said 'yeah I don't think you can hide that bump anymore'.
