This week we set an appointment to have my BC implant removed on September 12 and we are so excited to TTC! We’ve told both of our moms but none of our friends and it’s killing me! I just want to scream WE’RE GONNA TRY TO MAKE A BABY! We want to keep it a secret A) so if we have trouble it’s only our business and B) because it will be an awesome secret.
I knew I could turn to the Hive to share my excitement. Are any of you going through a similar situation? How do you deal with it?

We’re not there yet but we’re planning on keeping it a secret when the time comes. I’m a very private person and to me telling people you’re TTC is like telling people, “We’re having lots and lots of sex!”

Good for you! We are TTC but EVERYONE knows and I hate it. We are on cycle 2 and people are already making comments about how we probably have a baby on the way, etc… It’s hard.

We’re not trying yet, but we don’t plan on telling anyone at all when we do! I’ll probably be on the bee a lot! haha.

That is very exciting! I too struggle with keeping things a secret but I really want to keep it a secret from most when Darling Husband and I start trying in a couple of months. I just don’t want the expectations and constant barrage of questions/suggestions. We’re not telling our parents, although I think my mom has an inkling as she recently asked if I was taking folic acid. I talk to my sister about it but that will probably be it until we have that BFP and have had a doctor’s appt to confirm everything!
Good luck to you! 🙂

I don’t want people in our business asking “are you pregnant yet, are you pregnant yet, are you pregnant yet?” Other than my Future Mother-In-Law she can ask away, that doesn’t bother me in the least, but everybody else, yeah stay out of my uterus.

I actually wanted to keep it a secret from everyone but I work with my parents and was too excited not to spill the beans to my mom, so then I gave Darling Husband the go ahead to tell my Mother-In-Law.
I hate the thought of everyone knowing we’re having lots and lots of sex and then if things don’t happen quickly everyone asking what’s going on. As of now all of our friends & extended family think we will begin TTC in Sept 2012.

We’re kind of planning to stop the pill at the end of this month, and I already find it hard not to be a creepy, evasive weirdo. Like, my girlfriends want to plan a Vegas trip in the spring, and I’m being all wishy washy about it but don’t want to tell them why!

Yeah I wouldnt tell anyone if we were TTC because then they wont stop asking/talking about it. No one knows we have a baby on the way, we’ll be telling people maybe towards the end of the next month

We’re trying in secret as well! I have some fertility problems (which I’ve only briefly mentioned to family, Darling Husband only knows the real extent of them) and I know we are going to have trouble, so I didn’t feel like dealing with any of the extra pressure from anyone. If and when we do conceive, we plan on keeping that to ourselves as well until week 12ish. What a fun secret to have!
Congrats on taking an exciting big step!

We are not trying not to concieve, if that makes any sense.
We actually have a child already, a 8 month old, and we love being parents. I’m Chinese and we want a year of the Dragon baby, which start Feb. 2012, so I hope I will get pregnant sometime before the end of this year.
We definitely are keeping this a secret from EVERYONE until I am pregnant and start my second trimester.
It’s okay that your mothers know. They know they have something to look forward to! That’s great!
Good luck ladies! Have lots of sex! =P
