I haven’t told anyone because I’m scared it will take a long time and I don’t want constant questions about it. Darling Husband told his dad (!) right away. Sigh. Hopefully it will happen soon and this will all be moot though!

We didn’t tell anyone.  We had convinced pretty much everyone that we were happy childless (and we were!).  I did not want questions about our sex life, basically, to become ok for conversation.  My SIL told everyone that they were trying, and it kind of grossed out my parents.  🙂

FromA2B2013:  I chose to tell people only because I had some issues that made me think it WOULD take awhile.  I knew I would need the support of my close friends and family if it didn’t happen.  Everyone is different though!  So do what you are comfortable with!

We’ve only told our close family and friends so that we could ask them to pray for us during this time.

Wee’re very private people. We didn’t t first, but after awhile close family figured it out, since I’ve had 2 surgeries for it lol. I’ve told a few others just to stop the ‘so when are you going to have kids’ with, maybe never- medical reasons. It’s been 18 months and I’ve noticed that over time I’ve just stop caring whether poeple know and just tell folks if it comes up.

Two of my sisters-in-law announced when they were going to start trying so we were all constantly just waiting for the news. Luckily for both of them it only took 1 try, but it’s not something I plan to do. I like the thought of keeping it just between my husband and I as long as we can. We also don’t plan on finding out the sex, 3D ultrasounds, etc.

FromA2B2013:  Nope we will not be telling people at all. Everyone basically knew when my sister was trying and every time we got together people would be wondering/looking to see if she was drinking ect just generally being nosy lol!

My SIL also said when they were trying..I just don’t want people to know my business. We are possibly TTC in Aug 2015, and ive ltely been telling people who ask we are not having kids for a LONG time to throw them off the trail lol.  I also think I probably wont tell people I am pregnant until I can’t hide it any more lol ( hopefully it would be like SURPRISE Im having a kid in 4 months!)

FromA2B2013:  We told close friends that we were going to see what happened and that we pulled the goalie. We never really made an announcement, but when we were asked the question of when we were planning to start a family by friends, we’d let them know we hoped as soon as possible, but would have to wait and see.

We told family, but only because they asked when we were going to have kids. When other people asked we generally said “when it happens it happens”.   It took us 15 months to get pregnant and only a few people in real life knew it took so long.  After getting pregnant – I am much more likely to tell people about our struggle especially to people who have or are struggling – or are planning to TTC in the future.
