Who still hasn't told many people? I haven't told any of my friends (only my fellow students in my nursing class), or family yet. Funny thing is, I think my mother already knows. She got the mail from my mailbox the other.day and put it in my car for me. Well, I realize that the hospital registration forms are in there, so she must have seen it-a huge envelope with "birthing center" and "hospital registration enclosed" typed on i! But she hasn't said one word to me about it. Very unlike her.So I am not sure if she knows or not and I don't know if she has said anything to my sister. My SO just rolls his eyes and says "why don't you just tell her already?!" But I just want to live in my comfy little private world for awhile longer. Anyone else??

I have hardly told anyone, the only ones that know are my grandmother, a close friend, MIL, FIL & SIL. Besides that I feel like I NEED to keep this a secret for a very long time, I'm thinking of just announcing on fb only after the baby is born because if my mom (who I have no contact with) finds out from someone else she will start harassing me again like she did when I was pregnant with Alex, it was the most ugliest nightmare ever, I was nothing but stressed...This time around I'm trying to enjoy this pregnancy with as little stress as possible. Sometimes I wish I could just announce it on fb cause I know most people will just be happy for me, but I don't feel like I want to risk it.

I knew it was a good one when I started to feel pregnant. First day I had that pressure feeling from reflux, I told facebook. Lol but I had a lot of pregnancies to compare it to.

I can't keep a secret like this one - we waited 12 weeks to tell.

We just made our FB/IG announcement Friday we found out the gender (I had just turned 16 weeks). I really didn't start telling people until 15 weeks, I couldn't disguise my bump anymore

Why does your mom give you such a hard time when you're pregnant? I'm sorry to hear that. I know my mother will be disappoinTed so I don't want to deal with it. I am going to a wedding where all my friends will be at the end of may so i don't know if i will b able to hide it.

Don't know if I will 'announce' at all. Meh.

Most people who know about me by word of mouth. I didn't tell too many people, and I don't plan on it either, but rumors spread like wildfire here at work, lol. I think most of my family knows because my gma has the biggest mouth this side of Texas, lol.

We told the world at 12 weeks.

It was nice keeping it mostly to ourselves though.

I've still only told a few close friends, no family AT ALL!! Long story but I don't have any family to tell on my side, but DH has his mom and dad to tell (which he still hasn't) I see MIL once a week, surprised she doesn't know yet!! I will post an announcement photo on FB once we know the Gender at 25 weeks I think (Thinking of doing the cute shoes pic)

Everybody knows - I was okay with keeping it a secret a bit longer, since I was feeling pretty good and really still am not showing. My husband can't keep his trap shut though, so we told at 10 weeks. He's not a very good secret keeper

if I didn't have so much throwing up and feeling like crap I totally would have been happy to not have anyone know.

when i thought i was a lot further along than i actually am i didn't tell anyone and wasn't planning on it either. my family is pretty annoying and unsupported so i didn't wanna deal with all that. but for some reason i ended up posting an u/s pic when i was just about 12 weeks. and just like i thought, my mom was upset, all my brother had to say was "what the f?", my other brother hasn't said a word to me, even my dad was upset. just made me feel horrible.

How crappy, I'm sorry they acted that way.

I told my grandfather and a close friend or two. DH told his entire family. We haven't announced to facebook and don't plan to for awhile if we even announce announce. We might just wait until baby is here. I wish he hadn't told his family like I asked him not to. This is our 5th child and you'd really be surprised how guilty people make me feel for having another child and how rude they are about it. I love the little bit of privacy I have because then I don't have to listen and feel hurt that people who are supposed to be FAMILY would be that rude and insensitive especially at a funeral.

I have only told a few close friends along with DH's family for this very reason. Unfortunately blasting it to the world would be almost like an invitation for my mother to interfere in my life once again, so I'll continue to keep this under wraps for as long as I can.
