Ive been feeling a bit overwhelmed generally, only found out i was pregnant last sunday!! Its all v new
Ive posted before that DH is super excited and wants to tell the world. I said we could tell parents and sisters but that until the first scan or so…no friends and no public announcements. weve talkee about it at length and i said it was really important to me
Today he arrived back and his friend was in the drivewar, and looked at me “sooooo shall we tell him our news?!”
I said no and walked away, but when he came back to the house i just flipped. Completely. Shouting, crying, gesticulating. At one point my broad shouldered 6 foot plus husband flinched because he thought i was about to hit him. From exteme anger to crying like the world was ending
I just am surprised at how sudden and strong my emotions were and complete inability to talk rationally :S and then suddenly it passed, tho im still irritated.
Im scard of MC i just dont want him telling ppl. And now he thinks im a loon

I’m pretty sure it’s standard procedure to keep it mostly quiet until 12 weeks? Not sure why this is a problem for him.

@newname_99: He went against what was said in your previous discussion (no telling except family until the first scan). Perhaps even worse, he was putting you on the spot. If he wants to tell his buddy, he should have brought it up in private in that previous discussion. He was totally out of line and you had every reason to be upset.
You overreacted a bit, but hey, it’s obviously a huuuuge deal, and hormones are raging. I hope he understands.

@newname_99: The emotions are so hard to control!! I totally understand why you got so upset. Everytime I tell someone, I instantly regret it because I’m still so afraid of MC. I hope he can understand how you’re feeling, I know my FI doesn’t really quite get it but he’s trying really hard to be supportive and understanding. I hope you feel better!

Prego hormones or not I don’t blame you! Tell him to shut it! I’d be pissed – especially to put you on the spot like that!

@Bebealways: its standard in UK/US (im from UK) but here in Mexico people seem to literally announce it to everyone after peeing on the stick. Its not just DH, ive had to explain to his parents a lot of times that they need to wait before telling friends. and they dont get it =S
@jny1179: it was literally just after that lady posted in the feb baby thread that she’d lost her baby and it suddenly made it a real possibility to me
but after that little outburst i think he now (finally) understands about waiting.
apparently after i stomped off he made some lame excuse to his friend about our special news being going on holiday or something, but im fairly sure that hes twigged after i walked away

@newname_99: I know, I felt bad, but then MrsP was saying how the stats are dropping the longer we are pregnant. I started googling, then remembered the pact to NOT GOOGLE!
