Apparently my SOs whole side of his family knows I'm pregnant! I just found out all his uncles, grandma and people have been talking about it. I didn't tell any of them and SOs mom claims she didn't tell anyone. I guess I didn't realize I'm that obvious!! I hate people talking about me behind my back, too.
Now this makes me really worried to go back to my job Monday because if all of them called it, how am I gonna keep it from my boss (who is much closer and knows me much better than these people)? I mean I'm not planning on keeping it from her for more than a few days, but still. I guess I just scream pregnant to people.
This is why when we told our parents we knew we had to be ready to tell everyone. At first we were going to make them keep quiet, but we KNEW they'd never keep their mouths shut... So we just told them to go with it.
Yeah, it stinks because I know my parents can keep a secret and would never do anything to make me uncomfortable, so I didnt really have a problem with him telling his parents (its only his mom that's the trouble maker). My SOs mom has it in her head that I'm 13, so basically she's gonna be raising the baby, which is why I think she felt it was her right to tell people. Boy is she gonna be in for an awakening when she sees I'm more than capable and she's gonna have minimal part in the baby's life until she can start acting like a grownup.
I've told my family, but at DF's discretion, we're not telling his mom until we're ready for his whole family to know! She's quite the blabbermouth. So we're telling everyone at easter (including her) with customized m&m's... it's gonna be a blast!
Geez! I'm sorry someone obviously talked. That is so rude AND wrong even if she is upset about the pregnancy. I am so glad that my mother and my in laws can keep their mouths shut and respect something we tell them in private...otherwise they wouldn't be privy to anything, ever. I'm glad you have good parents to lean on
