We told quite a few people we were going to be TTC when we had our daughter and I really regretted it! Even though we got pregnant very quickly I felt very pressurised and as though all everyone was thinking was whether I was pregnant or not yet - nightmare!

Am going to be TTC again next month and wont be telling a single person!

I've told some mummy friends who have babies around Harry's age that we will be ttc maybe next year but probably the year after. Not told anyone else though.

I have only told my best friend, but it is really hard keeping it secret because everyone keeps asking when we are going to start a family! The girls at work have even decided that it will be me getting pregnant next! I am starting to wonder whether it is written all over my face!

I've told a few girls at work, as well as my best friend. Not any family, I know my mom would be supportive, but my OH's mom doesn't like not being in control.

I don't plan to tell a soul that we are TTC - I've also given strict instructions to my OH not to tell anyone (he can be quite rubbish with secrets at times!). If I could keep it a secret from him too then I would but that would be kinda tricky!!

I don't want the pressure of anyone knowing and constantly asking whether I am or wondering if I am. I will be putting enough pressure on myself as it is - plus I would hate to have to tell people that I'm not pregnant every month until hopefully I am because that would be so painful.

My OH and I have agreed though that we would tell our best friends if we have to go down the IVF route just so they understand the situation (and our moods) and we can ask for the extra support.

I don't even plan to tell anyone when I do (hopefully) get the BFP until I am at least 14 weeks gone - I think it'll nice to have a couple of months where only me and my OH know and can cherish the moment before the whole world knows. This will probably annoy my parents in law but I don't care!

I have told a couple of my friends that we are going to try- not when. I know my husband has told his parents.

We have decided to keep it a secret from most people because we experienced a lot of negativity when we had a surprise pregnancy and subsequent miscarriage back in September. We got a lot of "Now isn't the time. You're still in college." and "You're still young. Why would you have one now?"
So I've only told 2 of my closest friends that we are TTC sometime next year maybe. My husband's mom knows we decided not to wait for 5 years (the original plan), but nothing else.
Since we dealt with so much with the first pregnancy, we decided not to tell anyone about our next pregnancy until at least 12-16 weeks, just to make sure.

I had m/c 4 weeks ago, it was my 1st pregnancy and only 3 work colleagues knew about it at 1st. My intention is to tell everyone after my 1st scan but next pregnancy will be a secret until the bump shows. I didn't even tell my parents about it until the m/c
