I decided to tell my mom (told her to keep it a secret) and now my whole family knows . I feel sort of bad because some of the people I would have like to told personally. I am still not going to tell the people that don't know until I am at least 12 weeks, just in case I lose this one. My husband found out right away (he likes to be in on the pee stick check). Other than that I am just keeping quiet but I look so bloated and almost want to tell people so they don't think I am just gaining weight . I do have a bachelorette party to go to mid- april and I might spill the beans to the party, just so no one bugs me about taking shots or drinking. All I really have to do is say I will be the DD, but that's a dead give away that I am preggo, because anyone that knows me knows that I really get loose when given the opportunity ;)
I am a little worried about telling DH's family, since I had my son I havn't been back to work and I hope they don't think this is just an attempt to stay at home longer :( DH is really been working hard to keep us afloat and paying my crushing student loan debt (Law school.. yikes). So eventually, yes, I will have to go back to work. Truth is I love being a stay at home mom, money is tight, but it's so worth it. I don't think I can go back to work until the new baby is eating other things besides breastmilk, I hate pumping and I just see myself stopping breastfeeding all together if I had to go back to work. So hopefully, they will understand.
Even though this one wasn't planned I might pretend like it was and just say that "We wanted them close together, so when I go back to work I can focus on work and not have to take maternity leave or any additional time off for baby making/ raising." if that even makes any sense ... haha
