Came out of the facebook closet today. It took me a long time but it is done! DH is not looking forward to the extra attention. Lots of people are shocked, especially since we waited so long!

Oh no! Bummer your grandma found out that way. I would have probably waited longer but a couple of the friends I had told were dying keeping the secret!

Wow, I couldn't have waited that long to tell. I posted it on facebook right after I found out when I was like 5-6 weeks along. Pretty much the only attention I get about it on facebook is when i post something about the pregnancy. Other than that nobody really says anything about it. So it's not so bad.

Cheers to you coming out! I still have not come out. I'm not sure if I ever will on facebook or not until the baby gets here. I'm afraid of the negativity. Not very many people agree on having large families.

I'm still in the fb closet too. Was thinking about coming out now that I've had my 20 week u/s and know the sex, but I'm still undecided.

For those of you who think you won't do it, do you plan to just announce that you had a baby without them knowing you were pg? I've toyed with that idea but am not sure.

congrats to you, it does feel better.
and i agree... i've gotten "again?!" so many times this pregnancy, from a teacher and two friends at the school. i don't know if i even want to say anything, because that kind of hurts. i would never say that to someone. i even got that last time from one person, on #3. everyone will be so happy when i get my tubes tied, i guess. :-/

that's a good question. i don't know how or if my ex will find out. nick's dad-- i have no contact with him, and he has anger issues, and never wants to let me go, so i don't want to break it to him at all.

I would have stayed in the fb closet a lot longer also, but I found out my mother-in-law had already told everyone. She is one of those lovely ladies that hangs out at the bar with all her kids friends, so most of our friends knew months before we were going to tell everyone. Which stinks because I happened to be in town around my 3 month mark, and was so excited that I could tell everyone in person rather then over the phone like I had to with my family.
