Oh well I've told just about the whole world... LOL... they know all the gory details and my work colleages now know what EWCM is!!!

It will help them when they are trying so I am passing on my TTC and BandB knowledge!!!

I told everyone (well family and close friends) back in January when i started trying.....WORST MISTAKE EVER!!! dont do it, because if it takes you a while like it has with me, you just know everyone is thinking why arnt i pregnant yet, also they all seem to think they need to tell me all the time, not to stress and worry about. My opinion is keep it completly to yourselves.

Yes for our 1st TTC. And it became an embarrassment and annoyance and i wished i hadn't told anyone. WHy? Because i ended up TTC for 4 yrs and because i told everyone i was TTC, everytime there a gathering i will get the same questions. Hubby was not spared too. Friends and relatives got married and got pregnant almost immediately..and there i was still trying.

So my advice..don't tell.

We've not told anyone we're TTC which will hopefully put less pressure on us! I've mentioned it to my brother - who is sworn to secrecy but only because I was about to explode! I've also told two girl friends who are very tactful and unlikely to ask me if I've got my bfp yet.

Everyone knows

BUT they all know I won't be able to keep a BFP quiet, no matter how hard I try. So it takes the pressue OFF - because those that know don't ask.

Those that DON'T know say "Married 5 months.... pregnant yet?"

So it works the opposite way for me.
(And I tell them that creating the perfect child takes time )

I've mentioned it to family and some friends, and unfortunately I had to tell a few people at my Sunday night poker tournament because they kept asking me why I never drink at it and one day someone bought me a drink. I had to then explain why I couldn't have it (was in my 2ww). None of them usually bring it up except for this one woman. Every frickin' week she's asking me how it's going!!! I barely know her but for some reason she thinks it's cool to ask me for weekly updates.

I only told 2 of my girl friends who are understanding. They are great listeners and never ask me silly questions. My DH didn't tell anyone at all.

I know both our parents would be over the moon to know we are TTC but since I will be 35 next month and am a PCOS sufferer, getting pregnant will not be plain sailing for me. So I didn't tell them to spare them the emotional ups and downs of the TTC journey. Instead, we hope to surprise them with BFP (fingers crossed)

Yes - my hubby and I are like everyone here. We just recently started trying and just waiting until we get good news to let everyone know. It's bad enough that everyone asks if we're ever going to have kids -- I have one friend I do confide in and tell her that we are trying but that is as far as I go good luck to all!
