Just wondering how many of you still haven't told people yet? Im still almost too nervous to tell everyone. DH of course knows, a few of my close friends know, most everyone at my job knows (thats not many people lol) but we still haven't told my mom or his mom yet.
Just wondering if anyone else is still hiding it?
We still haven't told everyone. We have told family and a few close friends but that is all. I don't know why...I am feeling pretty confident about things now, but we were out of town so there just wasn't any time. But, I am thinking I am going to have to tell people now. I know I am not showing "baby" yet, but my clothes no longer fit...I guess my stomach muscles have no resistance now that this is number 3! It is about time to switch to maternity...at least within a week or two!
Mostly everyone knows. My aunt (who is also my godmother) does not know yet. I'm very scared to tell her. They are very religious and my uncle (whom i have mixed feelings about...) may lecture me and make me feel bad. My excuse to not tell people now is that i don't need to be stressing about how to tell people and how they will react
this is a little of a sore subject for my fiance and I. Somewhere along the line someone told him that you aren't supose to tell everybody until 16 weeks! I have told all the important people while he doesn't even want to tell his dad yet! It drives me crazy! Today we saw a lady that goes to his church and we know she will tell everyone but he still wants to keep quiet! Arrrrg!
I finally told my mom 2 weekend's ago. DH still has yet to tell his unit.... I told him if he doesn't tell soon I am going to stop by his office after my u/s on friday while he is home with the kids and tell them all then..... Or just send out a mass email to his chain of comand.

Everyone on my side of this arrangement knows. For my IP's, the only person they have told is her brother. They don't want to tell anyone else until we've had the results of the amnio, and then the first person they will tell is their daughter (they don't want her to know in case there is a serious problem and we need to terminate).

First surrobaby (girl) arrived April 24, 2008!
Surrotwins Hayleigh and Teagan arrived September 24, 2009!
We've told all of my family and friends. DH's parents know and so do most of his co workers. We haven't told my stepdaughter yet. She lives 5 hours away and we haven't seen her since we found out. She will be here Easter weekend and we'll tell her then. We wanted to tell her in person.
I've told almost everyone. I'm waiting until my appt this thursday to tell the rest of my sorority sisters. So far only one knows but its a touchy time since one of the girls recently had a loss. Kinda a delicate situation I have to tiptoe around since they have been ttc for years (so sad).
