Dh knows. We were actively ttc, and the moment I felt nauseous I gave up beer and cigarettes (I know, old habits that I pick back up during stress). He got off work one night and I said I wanted to go out to eat and he said he was too tired. I told him to change is clothes- I wanted to celebrate, and he instantly knew what I was talking about it. We ate buttermilk friend chicken for an insane amount of money. We havent told anyone else. Well, he told his life coach
That's all. DD keeps asking me if there is a baby in my belly. Psychic much? She's probably heard us talking about it.
My inclination is to wait until Im showing to tell, but I know there will be people who know beforehand. One of my bff's is currently ttc, and ovulates next week. If she gets a bfp two weeks later, Ill tell her. My other bff is 40+ weeks pg, and I cant keep it from her for too long. My other bff lives in colorado, so I plan to tell her as soon as she will stop letting her cell go to voicemail. And my other bff is currently out of town until November, but Im sure she will be among the first. Probably not until after our first appointment- at 7 weeks.
MIL will likely be the last to know. She was awful about us telling her about our last two kids, and I cant imagine she will be pleased this time. If anyone would say "it", it would be her. ("it", being that there was some high reason that our last son was taken from us and dont we think we are pushing our luck with trying for something that is so obviously not meant to be). People may think Im being a drama queen about that, but she literally told DH that we were cheating DD out of her childhood when we told her that I was pg with Charlie.
DH's plan for telling her: hand her a box of sparklers and say, "nothing but positives this time, mom"
My parents have already told us that they think the best thing for us would be (in their words) to "get back on the horse". So, Im sure they will know sooner rather than later. Plus, we are part time living with my mom right now, so it's only a matter of time before she figures it out if she hasnt already.
Announcement of facebook: I doubt it will happen this time.
No showers, parties, or other things until after this baby is here and healthy.
