It's hard keeping it a secret some days though. With my son, we told everybody immediately. On the other hand though, we're planning a homebirth this time so I'm not looking forward to what my in-laws and other people might say about that. (Not that it matters...) So in that regard, it's kind of nice to keep it to ourselves for now.
What about you?
If some people aren't friendly to a homebirth, just don't discuss your homebirth plans with them. They'll assume you're going to a hospital until you tell them otherwise.

Though I think in about 3 weeks I won't be able to hide it. Can't believe how quickly I got a "belly" this time!!
