Only you know your families best so I would do what you think is best for you and your family. Not sure how it will work when you at the end of your pregnancy and you see them but at that point it may be ok

Don't you think hiding it will CREATE lots of drama when the baby is born?

Do what's best for you but, personally, I think hiding your entire pregnancy is a dumb (for lack of other words) thing to do. You're an adult. If you don't want to be involved in their drama then just stay out of it, esp being that you live in another state.  Hiding an entire pregnancy until the child is born is bound to just create more drama.

I like the 1st comment. only i know my family. And i know them well enough to know they can be jugemental and drive me loco. but this also includes friends as well. my bf friends are just pure iddiots and my friends are a lil more supportive. then society is another story. thank you for the opinions !

trying to hide it is going to be more stressful than just telling them. Ive been married to my hubby for 5 years and my family is still judgemental about us having children.

I told my mom last friday and she said "well maybe since "bob" didnt get himself fixed, he will finally get the dog fixed." Seriously???
