Do they live close by? If so, you need to make sure they hear it from you instead of somebody else. If they live further away, there is no reason you can't wait longer. Just say you are feeling really emotional about being pregnant again, and that you would appreciate if they would give you some distance so that you and your DH can work through your feelings together in privacy. It's sometimes okay if their feelings get hurt, as long as you are polite but firm. You have to do what is best for YOUR little family. My step MIL had grand ideas about being in the delivery room when I had my first. We had to firmly tell her what would and would not be allowed on the day of delivery. She ended up getting her feelings hurt and choosing to stay home from the hospital on delivery day to "make a point", but I really could have cared less. It was more important that the pregnancy/birth be the experience that I wanted it to be than to make her happy.
