Ok need a rant and advice how to tell dh whats happened!
Im 8+3/4 days pregnant today and had a scan at epu, all looked fine bubs ok etc. Was over the moon of course so told my mum who has known about the pregnancy since day 1.
Now all my close family have this far kept it to themselves and dh family do not know yet as dh wanted to wait till 12 week stage to tell them, which i thought everyone understood!
Whilst chilling at home my sis says 'have you seen mums status on facebook?' so i look and quite frankly am shocked and annoyed! She has posted for the world to see that I am expecting, worse still mine and dh family all have each other on their friends lists!
I immediately called my mum telling her to take it of due to the above reasons and she got quite defensive as was getting lots of lovely comments from suprised friends who also know me and dh!!!
So i had to call DH brother to tell him the news before he found out and cant get hold of his sister. Have now had to announce it to everyone and have to tell dh whats happened when he gets home! His sis will now find out through facebook and his dad still does not know properly yet. I am sooo disappointed for her taking my glory (i dont mean to sound selfish) and for putting me in this position where we have to tell dh famly earlier so their not upset with us!!
Should i call his sister now as hes coming home late tonight, before her daughters come online and see everything??
Ring your sil and tell her NOT to look at Facebook because DH wants to tell her something. She most likely will guess but it still gives him the chance to tell her at least. It's very disappointing for you but I guess your mum was over-excited and didn't think to ask your thoughts before she updated her status. When alls said and done the really important thing is that you and baby are doing well and that everybody is delighted for you.
thanks guys its ok i called sis in law and told her the news, explaining we were keeping it quiet but my mum announced it and i wanted her not to find out that way! she was fine she knows what my mum is like! She was very suprosed did not know we were ttc! lol we always said we'd never want LO's.
Will explain to dh when he gets home he will be angry but he also knows my mum and what shes like.
