If you feel there are people who would end up ruining such a special time in your life; yeah I can understand that. I think there nothing wrong if you chose to share your personal life only with those you trust/are close to. In your case that’s not your mom, etc, which is unfortunate but That’s life, not everyone has some great mother daughter relationship. I think when you get pregnant the balls in your court…it’s your game.

Mistress_K:  Do what’s right for you. I can understand the need to not have toxic people around.

Mistress_K:  There is nothing wrong with that.  Make sure that you discuss that preference with the friends and family you do tell.  Also have a game plan in place for just in case someone slips up and tells your mom so you aren’t blindsided by a phone call with her all upset because you didn’t tell her and she heard it from someone else or saw you walking down the street with a pregnant belly.

Well, obviously, you’re going to have to tell people that you see regularly at some point, because you will be visibly pregnant or you will be accompanied by a child! But I think that it’s totally typical to wait until later in the pregnancy to tell people. And if there are people who aren’t involved in your life, I don’t see any reason why you would need to go out of your way to tell them. And, if you’re not even TTC yet, you’ve got oodles of time before you need to worry about this.
