    I'm disgusted,
    disappointed,
    furious,
    My own mother doesn't even know yet!

    We only told her because we thought we could trust her...:growlmad:

    Aw, that's so bad. I knew my MIL would be too happy to keep the news to herself (FIL too), so we didn't tell them till 8 weeks, when we told absolutely everyone.
    It's your news to break to the world. I'm sorry she did that. :(

    My bf's mum told everyone too - thankfully his family are in another country, so I was able to laugh about it... Having said that, I've just flown out to him, and the first thing his aunt said was "So, are you pregnant or not hmm?" - this is the first time I've met her! I was pretty shocked LOL I think some of it is simply that they don't have that 'must wait til the scan' rule that we have, and are simply more hmm enthusiastic about the whole thing than I expected ;)

    My MIL did the same thing. We were at a cottage retreat when we told them, and everyone at the retreat knew by the next morning! Grrr. In fact, she introduced me as OH's PREGNANT girlfriend. Hello, nice to meet you! lol
    I gave her strict instructions not to tell ANYONE for the next few days, so we could make the announcement in person to my parents, who live 2 hours away. Every couple of hours, she called me and asked "can I tell people yet?!" Grrr. I told her I would let her know! So I kept saying "NO!" for a few extra days, even after everyone knew! lol

    oh sweetie, I totally understand, it wasn't her news to tell, but be kind to her, she is very excited for you and it's a wonderful thing that she is. Some MIL won't take the news so happily, I would just appreciate that she was so happy she couldn't hold it :) You're in it for a long run, I wouldn't stir trouble just yet :)

    That is such crap that she did that. You wait your whole life to be able to tell certain people that you are pregnant and then someone totally ruins it for you. Maybe SHE has someone blab about her pregnancy and she just wanted to get the world back for that? Which is a total bummer too, if that happened to her.

    I'm really sorry that happened. Makes me sad for you. I hope you talked to her about it as well. Don't let it fester, just have a talk tell her it upset you and be done with it. Don't pretend like it doesn't bother you if it does!

    We have only told very few people. Been DYING to tell my mom but this might be too much for her to keep to herself. Our first appointment is Tuesday and I will probably finally tell her after that and beg and plead for complete secrecy for the next 3 weeks. We'll see!

    That is awful sweetie. She had no right to tell anyone, thats your news to tell and no one elses.
    One of my friends did the very same thing to me last year when I fell pregnant. I was gutted!! So glad I've managed to keep it quiet this time round.

    :hugs:

    Oh gosh! That kinda reminds me of my mother-in-law. we told her at 5 weeks i was pregnant and to keep it a secret until I had my ultrasound at 7 weeks. Well, she told the whole world. Now I know better never to tell her a secret again as she is horrible in keeping them from anyone. Made me mad too, but at least now we know better!
