So any of you still not telling anyone about there pregnancy? We still haven't told anyone yet! Well just my twin sis knows and a close friend... idk why I'm just not ready to tell anyone but its getting so hard to hide now ... my sis kept saying to me yday u better suck it in... I'm very surprised my mom hasn't noticed but shes usually so into my kids when were visiting maybe she just doesn't pay attention.... I guess I don't really have a reason not to tell other than the the remarks im sure will be made with this being # 4. I shouldn't care its our life, my husband and I want a big fam and are happy with the caos that comes with a big family!

I told my Mom and sister. Haven't told DH's family. They know people with whom I work, and I don't want work to hear through the grapevine. I was concerned that my Mom would not be happy. She was shocked. She is very supportive though. Just driving me crazy now with her worries. She would have been perfectly happy with DH and I just having our two children. Now though she is all worried that with my age I will miscarry or have some other issue. Funny how she would have rathered we stopped with our current family and now is all worried that I will suffer a loss.

Only our families and close friends know. I work with kids with special needs. I started my own company and right now, it's just me. I am nervous to tell the parents I work for since I haven't found someone to hire yet. I don't want them to think they will be out in the cold when I'm on maternity leave. I need to find someone ASAP, but the qualifications for someone insurance covers tightened up big time this fall. This means I can't hire the amazing persons wanted to and people now considered qualified are really hard to come by. I don't want these families to worry, but I don't know how much longer I can hide it...

My sister knows because she's always been very supportive. I told my mom after my dh lost his job, then when we found out something is wrong, she told my brothers. I have not talked to any of them though, and we haven't told dh's family or anyone not on jm.

We have just about everybody. Still haven't really announced it on Facebook though, will probably say something when we find out gender.

Just be careful keeping your secret for too long!!! I know someone who didn't tell for nearly 6 months and it really hurt her family's feelings that she didn't share with them.

I babysit fulltime and Im affraid to let the parents know as well.. but Im affraid once i get to a certain point in this pregnancy Im not goin to be able to keep the kids anymore.. with my last I had such horriable hip pain I couldnt hardly walk and had to go to the chiro often.. I just dont know if i can keep up with all the kids while being in so much pain..

I haven't told my mom or sisters yet. The family I work for with Job #1 know and those co-workers know, but I haven't told my boss or anybody from Job #2. And, obviously, haven't made the FB announcement yet. I'm already afraid I waited "too long" to tell my family, but if they wanted to know sooner they should have been happier for me the first nine times I've announced a pregnancy.

I've told my family, close friends and only a few select people at work know. Most of them being managers, and one of my best friends. My SO also works where I do, and that place is such a dramatic and gossipy place that we prefer to keep our personal life out of it. I think he told one person there so far, but that guy is a good guy, so I know he isn't out starting some crazy drama about it like some other people...I have pregnant friend there and also a pregnant manager, and you wouldn't believe the gossip going on about them. It's ridiculous.

My SO hasn't told his family yet. There are times where I know he just completely forgets that he hasn't told them (I wouldn't consider them to be the closest family). Then there are other times where he decides to tell them, and it just winds up being not a good time. He needs to get on the ball and tell them soon....I'm plumping up lol. I have no problems telling his mom, it's just I think she'd react worse not hearing it from him.

We announced it to our families at Thanksgiving, but I haven't told anyone at work. Someone at work approached me out of nowhere about 2 wks ago and basically asked me when I was due! I told that person to please not say anything since I hadn't told my boss yet. I planned to tell her last week, but she was out sick all week. Hopefully I will tell her tomorrow, because I don't think I can hide it much longer.

We have finally told everyone. Immediate family found out at Thanksgiving. Extended family and family friends found out with our Christmas cards. And then I did a Facebook reveal on Christmas Eve.
