I didn't tell anyone about our plans to ttc with ds1 but now that I'm broody again I'm not making it any secret... when I have stopped into work they're all like 'so you want more' and I'm like yes!! the sooner the better!!

First pregnancy was a surprise to my work colleagues I think as I'd never talked about it and wanted to put career first, but this time around I don't care and want them to know ahead of time for workload planning! and if friends ask I openly tell them we want more and the sooner the better...

We're keeping it a secret, we've told a couple of people (my mum & OH's brother) we're thinking about it but not going to say anything else until we get a positive and only then will tell my mum and everyone else after the 1st scan

We haven't told anyone and aren't planning to tell anyone until after the BFP.

It's been hard not to tell anyone, I really want to talk to someone but I don't know who!
I can't choose one of my sisters, because who knows if they'll leak it to the other one or someone else...
Nope.. guess I'll just have to talk to you guys about WTT and TTC.

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.
The exact same thing happened to us w/ our 1st pregnancy that ended in a MC.. "Your not ready, you guys are so young, it was for the best!" So We will be TTC starting February... But want no-one to know until after we've entered the 2nd trimester.. 1 close friend, my cousin & sister know - no one else!

I know it's for the best not to tell anyone, but it's so hard to keep it a secret! My family and friends are still saying negative things about the first pregnancy, so that makes it even harder.
Totally OT, where in FL do you live? I live in Gainesville.

I know exactly how you feel.. It's tough.. I live in Beverly Hills, a little south of Ocala.. My uncle lived in Gainesville for a while.. Small world! I just moved here about 1 1/2 mo ago from Ft Lauderdale. It's been a shock going from such a huge city to a small town. Gainesville's a decent size though.. Do you have an idea of when you'll start TTC?

I'm not telling anyone, we told family too early last time and mc before 12 weeks. I'm quite excited about me and my oh having this amazing little secret and want to keep it secret for as long as we can, hopfully till I'm about 16/20 weeks pregnant!! We don't live anywhere near family so shouldn't be too hard!!

My mum is awfully controlling so it's her I want to keep it longest from
