So far we haven't really "told" anyone. However my husband's best friend has a sixth sense about this sort of thing. He has been the first to know with both pregnancies so far. The first time he just looked at me (I was 4 weeks along) and just said "So are you pregnant?" This time I was talking to him on the phone and it was the same thing, he just knew. The only other person who knows is a friend irl who is also on mdc, so she read it on here. She knew we were trying though. That's it. I'll probably tell some other friends tomorrow at a halloween party, but we're waiting a few more weeks to really start telling most people. Dh doesn't want to tell anyone until we have it confirmed by a doctor. Even though I've told him we're not having a doctor, we're having a midwife and really peeing on a stick is the only confirmation we'll probably get until a heartbeat can be detected on a doppler and frankly I'm not sure I can wait that long to tell people.
The only thing is we're staying a week with family down in LA right now and I feel like them not knowing makes me seem rude. Like I'm so tired and so I'm not offering to help with cooking and cleaning and if they knew I was pregnant they'd totally understand, but because they don't it just seems rude. Or I spent all morning hiding upstairs today, because MIL had painters painting a room downstairs and I was avoiding fumes like it was a life or death matter and I think it just came off as being aloof. Also I got yelled at for eating the second to last banana because they're for sil and fil for breakfast tomorrow (which I didn't know), but I really think mil wouldn't have cared if she'd known I was pregnant because pregnant women are first priority when it comes to food. You know?
