First, he shouldn’t be telling people if you’ve decided to keep it private. Second, she shouldn’t be hurt over it. I don’t see why TTC would be anyone’s business but yours and your husband’s.

Ugh. I would be really angry and upset!

I think you need to have a serious conversation with your DH and let him know how you feel. If you’re not ready to tell people, or don’t want to tell people at all that you’re TTC, he needs to respect that.

I’d recommend that you two discuss this now and come to a decision you’re both comfortable with, otherwise you run the risk of him telling more people, or even worse – once you fall pregnant, announcing your pregnancy before you’re comfortable.

@fresitachulita:  This blows, really it does.  I would hate to be in your shoes.  I’m sure he was just really excited about it and maybe he doens’t even realize that it’s a much bigger deal to you to not say anything.  I dont’ know if you’ve done this or not, but you should explain to him why you don’t feel comfortable telling people right now.  And yes, you’d better discuss what happens and who gets told once you do get pregnant so it doesn’t happen again!

oh god i can empathise. my husband started telling people we were ttc…i reined that in, but didnt occur to me to tell him not to mention my pregnancy (as come on, its common sense you dont announce it super early). Within an hour of me peeing on the stick i got a congratulations message from one of his friends. It was time for another talk haha

its stressful as if it takes longer ttc than expected you dont want to be fielding all the questions

@fresitachulita:  Yikes, that’s no fun 🙁 Make sure you sit him down and make sure he understands where you’re coming from and what you want – ESPECIALLY if you don’t want people to know right away once you do get pregnant.  I imagine if he’s too excited to keep it in that you’re trying, he’d likely want to tell everyone right away once he’s successfully knocked you up 🙂
