So i would just like to know what to say to people when they come straight out and ask if your pregnant when your not planning on telling anyone. The only people weve told so far are the dh's mom, my parents and like 2 friends. Tonight i went to my parents for my brothers b-day party. I made a comment about it being hott in here. So my aunt asked me if i was pregnant. I told her no . I didn't know what else to say i have three sisters that are still in high school(they like to talk) and they were all sitting there. So then later both of my parents pulled me aside on different occasions and asked me why i said no. I told them what else was i supposed to say the girls were sitting there if they found out everyone would find out. I know before i posted a topic saying i wanted to tell everybody, but i just can't help but remember how badly it hurt to know that about everyone found out last time and not to mention my whole church . And how hard it was to tell everyone we lost it. I would have thought my parents would have been completely supportive of my feelings. Instead they made me feel like crap. So now i feel bad i lied to my aunt but i don't know what to do. Please help. What do you tell people. Have they ever just outright asked you if you were pregnant knowing you just had a miscarriage? Help!

Thanks Claire for my awesome siggy!!

I would've said no too. In fact, I'm sure I had during the first trimester. It sucks that your parents are making you feel like crap about it. You aren't lying for the sake of lying. If they don't like it, too bad for them.
THANK YOU Mrs. Jantzen for my AWESOME siggy!

If you don't want to tell say what I say

You just never know.

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"

I put the "D" in lysdexia

I dont' really have any advice, because the look on my face always gives it away, so people usually know within about 2 or 3 days that i'm pregnant LOL...
