    I ended up telling my sister-in-law well before anyone else. We were at my in-laws place and I was feeling sick and tired, and we had just found out. She semi-jokingly asked and I said no in front of everyone, but then I felt guilty for lying so we pulled her aside and told her privately. But other people I am not as close with, I wouldn't share until we are ready.

    I don't think those two go together. Some people are just nosey whether you know them well or not! I had a woman, a friend of a friend who I casually know, ask me if I was pg when I was like 6 weeks or something! Totally nosey and she even admitted it! She thought maybe I was because of my pins on pinterest. Like, geeze! Now I have an all new secret board on pinterest to hide those baby pins!

    That's the key for me. Their ability to keep a secret. My mom has told secrets in the past but she has been pretty good at keeping the pg thing quiet. She emailed me yesterday that she saw MIL for 4 hours and managed to not spill the beans! LOL. Good work mom!

    I TOTALLY agree with you on this. It took us 15 cycles to get pg with DD and it was a very painful and private process. We didn't tell anyone we were TTC because we didn't want people asking every month how things 'went'. A few months ago MIL started pestering about making DD a big sister. I find those comments, whether flippant or not, to be VERY rude. It really irks me.

    I'm totally the opposite! I'd rather tell the world by email, text and FB. I hate giving news to people in person, whether good or not. It's weird. I just don't like the attention I guess.
