Who's spilled the beans?

I am THE WORST at keeping my pregnancy a secret!! I swear, DH could hold it in until January if he needed to, but I am the biggest blabbermouth! I blurted it out to my girlfriends last weekend (I was NOT going to), we've announce it to my mom, then last night we told my dad and stepmother, who kept it a secret for all of 30 minutes and have now told my dad's entire family and my step sisters and their families which I'm sure means all of their friends know!!! So much for keeping it on the DL.

How is everyone else doing on the secret keeping?

So far we've only shared with our parents, siblings, one aunt, my best friend and one of my co-workers - mainly people who knew we were doing an IVF cycle. It's been hard not to share with others especially since we've been TTC for year and a half and I have this weird complex about people assuming we don't want kids just because we don't have them yet. Yesterday I saw a lot of my extended family and people I've known for years. They asked me about kids and all I can say is not yet but I take comfort in knowing that we are pregnant finally and I can share the good news eventually.

Still a secret over here!!

Only DH and I...well, you guys, too. Smile

I plan on waiting until my first u/s at 9 week to tell my mom and then we'll tell everyone else after the NT scan at about 12/13 weeks. I'm pretty proud I've kept it to myself so far but I kind of feel like I have a secret and I like it.

Afther that I told my mom and sister and my bff and of course my mom told everyone lol, she loves when she is having a new grandbaby.

We've told both sets of parents, both siblings, and a few friends. I had to tell my boss because of the safety of myself and baby. I'll probably tell more after tomorrow if the u/s goes well Smile

Other than DH, I've only told my mom...but I've almost told people several times. Today a friend announced she was pregnant, and I almost said, "me, too!." I'm trying / hoping to keep it a secret until after my first midwife appt (June 1), but I imagine it won't last that long. I think people will get suspicious b/c I'm not drinking and my belly is getting bigger (this is number 3, after all!).

We have told close family members and friends, but I haven't announced it on Facebook yet. I want to wait until after my first U/S before making the big announcement to the whole FB world. Biggrin

We told our families the day I tested. I was going to be with my grandparents all week and KNEW it would slip out somehow. I didn't think it was fair to let them know without our parents knowing and I didn't want them to be the ones to slip and tell them. So we told everyone before we left for vacation. I've told a few friends at work and mainly because I am with them all day, so it would be hard to hide the bouts of sickness from them.

The rest of my coworkers and casual friends will find out after my OB appt where I see/hear the hb. Its way too hard of a secret to keep for me. I'm so excited I can't help but want to tell everyone my story.
