I told DH that I suspected I might be pregnant just over a week ago, but only tested + last Thursday, when I, of course, told him that it was confirmed. He's pretty happy about it, though we weren't expecting to get pregnant quite so soon.
I told my mom yesterday on Skype because I'd been talking to her during the week, and complaining about feeling a bit tired and sick (this was before I knew for sure) and she asked if I could be pregnant. I sort of brushed it off, but I knew she suspected anyway. So I decided to tell her sooner rather than later, particularly because I'm a bit freaked out because of my PTSD from last traumatic birth and I know I'll need someone other than DH to talk to.
And I sort of told DD - she found the pregnancy test and wanted to know what it was, so I told her it meant that mama was growing a tiny baby in her tummy and that it might turn into a baby brother or sister for her in a long long time. (She's not even two yet, so not sure how much of that sank in!!)
But DH seems a bit miffed that I've told my mom and DD - he keeps saying that it's tempting fate and that it's much to early to be telling people. I don't think it's unreasonable to tell a few select people in the early stages, because for me last time that was the toughest part of the pregnancy up until the last few weeks, when I was exhausted all the time and sick and nobody knew I was pregnant so I just had to keep pretending that everything was okay.
So what do you guys think? Is it silly to tell anybody in the early days, or is it acceptable to tell a few people, or do you shout it from the rooftops as soon as you get a BFP? Who have you told so far?
