So, DH told MIL that I'm pregnant again via phone. I was sitting right there and kept telling him not to tell her because I wanted to wait until after my first appointment to tell her. Well, he told her anyways. This leads her to make a huge FB announcement telling the whole freaking world that I'm expecting.

I haven't even mentioned anything on FB about it. Now, I didn't tell her specifically, "hey don't tell anyone", but I just thought that was common knowledge to just keep in on the down low until the expectant MOTHER not MIL wants to share the news.

What if something happens and I lose the baby or something else happens and I have to break the news to ALL THESE PEOPLE THAT WEREN'T SUPPOSED TO KNOW IN THE FIRST PLACE.

I'm so mad.

Yes, I would be upset if my dh told someone when he knew I didn't want him to say anything. While it would be annoying if mil started telling people, I would fault my dh more than her.

I would be LIVID. I'm so sorry.

My husband told my coworkers that I was pregnant before I got a chance to do so. It made me so mad.... I can't even imagine if my MIL were to spill the beans. *shudder*

I would be pissed. I would put on my highest, pointiest heel and go kick her in the taco.

Thanks Stacy, lol. That made me laugh. Plus, I have a sinus infection and I can't breathe and the last thing I needed was for him to tell her and then for her to tell the freaking world of FB. I wasn't ready for it to be FB official yet. It's so early on and there's so many things that could happen.

I would be mad too! I'm almost nine weeks and I don't plan on making an announcement to the people in real life until I'm out of the first trimester and I've had my cervix stitched...and that will not happen until after 12 weeks and 1 day at the earliest...

Sorry Lauren. I would be pissed too.

I vow to NEVER be a big mouth, annoying MIL. DH would be in big trouble too.

Yeah, I'd be royally pissed. More so at DH who you specifically said "don't tell her" to. MIL was just overly excited and made a bad judgment call. For her I would have severe annoyance, but for DH I would have evil thoughts.

IMO if something happens than she can be the one to put it on her FB and tell people. I would be pissed off too.

I'd be furious but mostly at the DH whenyou told him not to say anything, not THAT hard to zip your mouth or atleast tell her to NOT mention it to anyone
