    I'm trying very hard not to tell anyone that I'm pregnant until after 1st trimester, with the exception of DH and one of my close friends who's also been TTC #2. But it seems like everywhere I go, people are asking me "Will LO get a brother or sister?" To which I respond "One day... but not any time soon." :nope:

    Today, when I picked up LO from daycare, his teacher asked the question. The teachers at his daycare are all in love with my son and his personality, and they're wondering if he'll get a sibling one day much like him. While I understand their excitement... I just can't say anything yet.

    Add to it that the staff there just went through a baby boom. And at the last parent-teacher planning team meeting, I made a comment that I wasn't going to drink their water (as I didn't think I was pregnant at that point). :nope:

    Is anyone else running into this now where they're trying to stay quiet and yet the whole world is asking if there's a baby on the way?

    (Some people glow during pregnancy. I must radiate like the sun with the way everyone has been. :dohh: )

    Oh yeah. I feel like such a liar because I constantly have to say "no no, not pregnant" and hoping they buy it!
    Had a miscarriage in July so everyone is expecting us to bounce back with a pregnancy right away. Which we did :happydance: but that made us cautious about telling people. I wouldn't have to "un-tell" again even though we only told family last time.
    Definitely sticking to the plan of keeping it a secret until we're out of the first tri. Maybe I'll wait even longer. But I wish everyone would stop making a liar out of me!

    I am in the same boat you are in that I am not telling anyone until 13 weeks with the exception of very close friends and family... But the friends that I did tell all either asked flat out if I was or said they could tell. Maybe they can just feel our excitement. :)

    I just want to shout it from the roof tops that I am but after having an an early MC in feb and a chemical the start of April I'm trying to hold out till 13 weeks but I so just want to tell everyone lol my mum and siblings know and a few close friends but we haven't even told my monster in law. So until we tell her we won't be able to tell anyone else and I'm so not ready to tell her lol!

    I almost always crack. This has happened to me a few times. One time my sister even just asked me, "Soooo... anything new???" And I was like, "OKAY FINE I'LL SPILL IT!" Lol. I would make the worst special agent ever. They'd tickle me with a feather and I would tell them everything I know.

    I do try to keep it a secret because like you I want to wait until the first trimester is over, but my uterus has already gone and popped up above my pubic bone because it's a little over achiever lol, and it's making the rest of my stomach look like I have a little bump starting (actually like an unmistakable bump), so I can see people looking. It's not going to be very easy! I feel your pain!

    I WAS glowing, between weeks 4-5, until my pregnancy symptoms hit. Now I look like a greasy troll. I hope that clears up soon lol, but I'm glad that you have the glow! I hope I get mine too!

    Nobody has guess that I'm pregnant except my sister in law and hubby before I told them. Not sure how no one else has guessed with all the symptoms i had. I started telling co-workers on Saturday and they pretty much had the little light bulbs going off. Oh it makes so much sense now, lol.

    :lol: I know the feeling. Quite a lot of people know about my pregnancy; more than I'd like, but it's been hard to hide with the morning sickness.

    My dd asked me if i was pregnant and i lied to her... :( I feel bad for that. Both my dds keep asking when i will have another baby (they are desperate for another baby brother/sister) and as we got married end of July think others are expecting it sooner rather than later...! Trying to hold off til scan as am so scared something will go wrong. Finally decided to tell gp and have appointment Tuesday when i will be 7 weeks...

    Some of my friends who had children already knew right away when they saw me. It's too obvious and I can't lie like that! So I just told those friends to keep it hush hush and not blab on FB yet. I told close friends prior, because I cycle and they need to know if I went on a ride and something went wrong. A few of my cycling friends were already suspicious because all of sudden I stopped cycling and my mileages has dropped quite a bit. During that time, I was experiencing a lot of cramping and having issues. Now I don't have as severe, but they'll wonder why I'm not sprinting up my favorite hills anymore. Some people LOOK pregnant and act pregnant for someone who has kids or keen eye for body behavior will notice right away.

    I think in a couple weeks, after my second scan I'll announce to the world.

    Yes totally!
    I'm 8 weeks and so far we've told our parents, sisters and a best friend each but we are both struggling with not telling everyone else!
    And because we've been married for 2 years, everyone constantly asks when there's a baby coming!
    I'm the most honest person ever so I'm finding it very hard to lie!
    Just 4 more weeks until I can tell everyone! Hurry up November!

    My 12 week scan is on the 6th as well!!

    Your due date must be the 19th May?
    I'm the 17th, according to my midwife, but 18th by my GP lol.

    November is my favourite month anyway as it's my birthday on the 24th and this year it's my 30th!
    So I'm really going to love November this year :)
