My DH wants to tell his parents, but when we called it rang and then went to voicemail. I have to say, I'm kind of relieved! I really think my MIL won't be able to keep her mouth shut about it. Now maybe I have an extra week or so for an in-law buffer

We haven't told MIL yet either for the same reason. Once she knows everyone knows Glad you have a little more time if you want it.

Nope! I thought I'd tell my Dad (and stepmom and brothers) in person when I saw them in March, and I figured I'd call my mom at some point. DH just really wants to spill the beans I think. I have already gotten to tell 2 friends (I would just explode if it were a secret-secret!!) and I think he feels the same way w/ his folks.

DH told his mom a couple days ago, she is the only one that doesn't really agree with my choice to have a big family but she really doesn't care as much anymore now that we are on #5 lol

I can completely understand your relief. I am literally dreading telling my husband's side of the family. I think my family will be less upset, lol. I can just imagine the comments and then afterwards all the talk behind my back. Makes me so frustrated and sad at the same time!

Oh I'm on the same page as you.... My outlaws are the least positive people in the world. We live 5 minutes from them and I haven't seen them since July at our daughter's birthday party. My husband is an only child and we've really come to accept it's simply their loss. Our kids are awesome and they're missing out on them!

Hope it goes well when you tell them.

I was slightly nervous telling my mom, just because this was a surprise, but she was super excited.
