Hi all! I'm seeking the advice of you lovely ladies on how to deal with a delicate situation. I'm 5w2d pregnant with my second child and haven't told anyone except my partner and doctor. I'm already having anxiety about telling my brother and his wife as they have had infertility issues. They've been married for 5 years and have been trying to have a baby almost the entire time. They've been through 3 or 4 rounds of IVF with no success (although the last procedure was last month so there's a possibility that they are pregnant and just haven't said anything to anyone since it would be pretty early). This pregnancy was not planned (we're not married; we're not even living together yet), however it's an amazing surprise that we're very excited about. I know my brother's wife will feel hurt because when one of her unmarried friends got pregnant (twice, she miscarried the first time), she made many snide remarks about how it's not fair, etc. I can't imagine what it's like for them and if I could change places with them, I would. How would you suggest I break the news to them? Should I contain my excitement or just be normal? I don't want to say the wrong thing. Thanks, everyone!
