or I should say the baby. I've been having nightmares about telling my Mom so instead, I told my brother who is living with my parents and has a big mouth. He of course told my mom who then told my sister (who already knew but acted like she didn't) who then told me that my mom knew. Now it's only a matter of time before all my siblings know. The funny thing is that I still haven't talked to my Mom but she told my brother that she had suspicions. yah, ok, whatever.

I'm just glad that I won't have to try and hide anything when she comes out here in April, not that I could anymore. I'm just preparing myself for the comments I'm bound to get. It would be nice to just once have one of them just say congratulations and keep their comments to themselves.

I don't know the story here, but I'm glad that you don't have to hide it anymore. That's never fun to do!

I would just tell them when you see them that if they don't have anything nice to say then they shouldn't say anything and you don't want to hear it. If they start talking negatively, just leave the room. You can't control what they say, but you can control whether you're around to hear it.

Good plan, Rebecca! Use the power of gossip And I agree with Courtney, you don't have to listen to anything negative they want to say.

Yeah, I'm ALL ABOUT the power of gossip It's so much easier than telling everyone personally. Just tell the one person with the biggest mouth!!!

I hope you don't get too much negativity from your mom when you do see her.
