Pregnancy Pregnancy

I am having such a hard time...

keeping this a secret! I have already told my whole family as well as my 2 best girlfriends. But my SO's family lives a little further away and he wants to tell his mom, dad and sister in person (all live in 3 seperate places) before I tell all my friends so I have a feeling I'm going to be waiting a while before I can tell anyone else. I am 23 years old (today actually is my bday haha) so all my friends keep asking me why I dont want to do a Sunday Funday for my birthday and have been asking me all week to go out and get a drink. THIS IS SO HARD lol

Happy birthday! Don't cave to much! My boyfriend only got to tell his mom and dad! I spilled the beans to one of his best friends!  (He was the first person I seen besides my SO after I found out) and my best friend told his other best friend (my SO was trying to get in contact with him to tell him but their schedules never worked)

Happy belated birthday! Keeping it a secret is super hard! We wanted to do a cute announcement this time around, but ended up telling close family and friends beforehand. We started telling people when I was about 8 weeks (which was hard because I found out at 3.5 weeks!) and then we made the "official" announcement at 11 weeks, right after I got my first sonogram done.

I don't think I'll be able to wait that long.

I told my immediate family then he took his mom out to dinner to tell her (he's an only child) I'm 10 weeks and everyone else found out through them, all the women in our values are gossip queens. tell one you have to tell them all. Lol

Congratulations!  I somewhat know how you feel!  When we were going through fertility treatments, I would never drink the second half of my cycle.  We didn't want a lot of people to know we were going through treatments...we didn't need or want all of the questions.  It always seemed like that was when we were invited to do something...lol.

 

How exciting for you!  :)
