How would you tell your family your pregnant?

I found out Im pregnant by hpt 2 days ago. Tomorrow it will be confirmed by Health would you tell your family if you know they didn't want you to get pregnant again? I have a 5 month old, I am married, I love on my own, but they still butt in my life alot!

  • i wrapped the stick test in a box (with the cap on ;p) and had the positive part side up - then we went to my moms and told her we had a special gift for her, first words out of her mouth were 'oh you didnt have to" my first words were 'careful i pee'd on it' after she opened the box it was like some weird twisted joke - think of it this way they may be mad now but what are they going to do? It was hard telling my MIL because she up in our business too - but now shes just glad shes getting another grandchild

  • i think pregnancy is wonderful so they shouldnt take it badly, my sister in law got preg when her baby was 4 mons, my family joked abt it 4 a few days, but then they were buying stuff for the baby the next day. It'll be fine. & they have to find out sooner or later rite?

  • I would just come out and tell them.... waiting isn't going to do much good. Be happy about it though, your kids will be close! It's exciting!

  • When I found out I was prego, I gave a copy of the piece of paper that said I was pregnant along with the HPT to my hubby's Grandma (bc I didn't have a U/S yet). Then for my mom I took a copy of the first ultrasound and gave it to her inside a mother's day card for "Grandma" lol. Btw I found out I was preggers in May, so it kinda worked out.
