We’re only just over 2 months pregnant but it seems like every day my husband comes home and confesses to me that he told another person we’re pregnant. I have told no one! I asked him to respect my wishes and keep it quiet until we at least tell our parents but he’s just so excited. I’m excited too, but I wanted my parents to know before anyone else! I don’t know what to do. None of the people are friends of the family or know his family in any way, I’m just afraid they’re going to post something on FB or ruin the surprise somehow. 🙁

Awww 🙁 Maybe just sit your husband down for a moment and explain to him that this is important to you and your parents I’m sure would have their feelings hurt if everyone else found out about the baby before them. I’d also recommend telling your parents soon because it’s hard to keep a secret like that! 🙂 I would just sit him down and tell him how you feel about everything and to prevent your parents from getting their feelings hurt, that you’d like him to refrain from telling anyone else.

I’m sorry. That’s total BS. He shouldn’t be telling people if you asked him not to and the parents havn’t been told. I’m sorry…I think you really need to explain to him how you feel about this. You guys are a team and he really needs to listen to you

Then your best bet is to go ahead and tell your parents. Because if he is already telling people…who are you keeping it from? Its better they find out from you and your hubby than from word on the street through people, who have told people, who have told people, or through facebook.
So, plan a nice way to tell em and let it rip! -your hubby can’t contain himself! LOL

My husband did the same thing with Moose. He was just too excited and couldn’t keep it in. Frankly, I found it really sweet.

Definitely talk with him and let him know that you STILL don’t want him telling anyone. Maybe mention that you’d like to be able to tell people together, so he won’t continue telling everyone when you’re not present?
Like some other Bees said, I definitely think you should tell your parents. You never know how they might hear about it, and you definitely want them to hear this great news from you!
Congratulations, by the way!

My husband did it with ours as well. After we lef tthe 6week ultrasound, he took a photo of it and sent it to all his friends and told all his coworkers the next day. I found it kind of sweet as well. I was annoyed at first too, but hes so excited he cant keep it in. As long as he doesnt tell family or someone at your workplace where you are trying to keep it quiet, Id lt it be.

I understand wanting your folks to know before others, but to be fair over two months is a long time to not be able to talk about it to anyone (his needs/wishes have to be considered too)…so glad you’re telling your parents this weekend. My husband and I told our parents early on and we agreed to wait until the 2nd trimester mark to tell our extended family, friends and work. When he’d come home confessing that he’d told his eye doctor and a random lady in the grocery check out line…virtual strangers he could “safely” tell without the rest of our world finding out the news…I knew it was time to tell a few close friends and family so he could share his excitement. May seem a little annoying now, but sounds like you have the makings of a good dad on your hands if he’s this excited.

🙁 so sorry! you should tell your parents before it gets out to them, but also tell them that you wanted to wait but your husband can’t keep his mouth shut. they’ll understand, they had you and probably waited to tell everyone, too!
