    Default Who's Still Keeping the Secret??

    Sandra's post got me wondering how many of us have spilled the beans and how many are still waiting??


    We haven't told "the world" yet but have told quite a few people. Our parents, close friends, and DH's extended family we recently vacationed with. I keep postponing it, but I'll probably email my extended family and spill the beans on FB this week and get that out of the way now that I'm hitting the 2nd tri.

    About the same as you, Ashley. We haven't told the world, but our immediate families, close friends, and people who see us all the time know.

    We haven't really told anyone. It sucks. My mom knows and a handful of friends. MIL doesn't even know...or my dad. I'm tired of keeping the secret.

    The CVS results should be in by the 19th at the latest...then we will tell everyone...I'll be 15 weeks. Sigh. This sucks.

    Sorry sweetie. I'm curious why you guys haven't told your MIL or your dad? Would you just rather they not stress about the results too or is there another reason?

    I haven't told the Facebook work yet. My mom was supposed to give my brother his card yet. So I'm not sure if he knows. Once I know he knows, I will have a subtle post on Facebook and see who catches on. I don't feel obliged to even say anything on Facebook, but I guess I will. If I could keep it an absolute secret, I would. But, it is nice lot having to worry about hiding it!

    My dad and I aren't close...and we rarely see each other. My parents divorced when I was 4.

    As for my MIL. I don't think my MIL will react well if the CVS results are bad. Hubby thinks I'm making it all up and that she would understand. MIL is very bossy, stubborn and old school. She loves DSD unconditionally despite her severe mental retardation. I just don't feel like re-living a could-be bad experience over and over for my whole life as she reminds me about it. She just doesn't let things go. What I will do to myself will be bad enough, trust me.

    Heather: makes sense. That's a heavy burden to carry but I understand your not wanting to let her get worked up if you think she will unless absolutely necessary. Can't wait to hear your good results soon so we can ALL breathe a sigh of relief for you!

    ME TOO! I'm pretty positive that they will be good...but if they are bad it will probably be the worse day of my life thus far...so I'd rather minimize the impact on that one.

    Well, since we told DS, everyone in his little world knows!! His entire school and his hockey team. Our friends and family all know. The only ones I'm keeping it a secret from are my students. I teach at a college, and I have 2 weeks until the students are gone, then when they come back after christmas break, I'll let in on it.
