How do I tell my in.laws

Okay so in 2009 my fiance came into my life in 2010 our son was born, they didnt really approve of our son till they saw him then of course they were head over heals. Now this past year since my boy has been on earth we've had to ask my in.laws for help every now and then which they dont mind very much.

And now fiance and i think we might be pregnant again, and we plan on telling them after we know for sure. But how do we tell them without them freaking out all over us, I dont want them thinking that were rabbits and will have babies every year I want a girl and well to be honest so does fiances mom you can tell shes been kinda asking for a grand daughter. So do I tell them after know? Do I tell them after we know the sex? Or do I leave it up to fiance and hope for the best?

(PS Im a big girl so to those who would say that id be showing by the time i know the sex its wrong i dont show till like 5 or 4 months usually.)

  • Actually with your second one you typically start to show quite a bit earlier but that is neither here nor there. I would just go ahead and tell them, get it done and over with.

  • My first was my second. I was pregnant before but that son got adopted so my first son is my second pregnancy.
