Freaking out- telling families today, a week before the scan!
I don't know how to do this! I'm soooo scared!! How do I even word this? Also I need to ( in a polite way ) say that makes it totally plain that they are not to do the usual blabber mouth stuff they usually do and tell everybody everything!
Hrm - maybe mention you have an ultrasound in a week? Let them put the pieces together. Then mention that you're still nervous and would appreciate it being kept between the "people you love most" so that way they'll be complimented at the same time hehe.
Is this one planned or a surprise? Everyone knew I was TTC so even friends knew when I got my BFP.
I just walke into my mams living room and said.. "im pregnant" and started cryin! Baby was planned and my mam knew I was ttc but I had traumatic flashbacks of tellin them when I was pregnant at 17... And I thought they were going to be a bit blasť about it as this will be their 3rd! But my mam was really please and my dad jut said "Jesus christ! I'm only 45 and got 3 grand kids! Too young for this sh!t" but then hugged me and said congrats...lol.
It was my sister I was more worried about tellin as she'd been ttc and was old 2 days before my BFP that she wasn't ovulating... But she was happy for me to as she knows I've been tryin for a while...
OHs parents were thrilled as this is their 1st grandchild thru blood.
My advice it to just get straight to the point but make sure that they are aware that it is a secrect for now! Good luck!!
I think it's fine to say "please don't tell anyone", we've said this to all our family and friends who know. I think most people know it's better to wait until the second tri before making a pregnancy common knowledge. Best of luck xxx
