Have you talked to your husband about spilling the beans? 

How long before you plan on telling your family about it? Perhaps you should hurry up a bit a tell them now? I’m sure that your Mother-In-Law is just excited and thought that telling a few people couldn’t hurt. But we all know how “just a few” ends up.

We went through the same thing, I’m so sorry and I hope it stays off FB until you’re comfortable.

eeeeck! that would freak me out too. maybe you could change your fb settings until they know, you could disable ppl from being able to post on your wall. then at least they won’t find out on there! i think a parent would be heart broken if they found out their child was expecting on fb. are you waiting to see your parents and tell them in person? could you make plans to see them sooner? i can see FI’s mom doing that, i know it’s out of love and excitement, but still, it should be up to you & dh when ppl find out. congrats and good luck with your announcement=)

Is there a reason you can’t tell your parents now?

I know the feeling, not 24 hours after i tld my Mother-In-Law she told a friend of ours even though WE TOLD HER NOT to tell anyone, i understand this is exciting but geez, i was really ticked. Like others have suggested is there any way you can tell your parents soon?

Ugh, sorry you’re dealing with this headache!

When we’re pregnant, we’ll be waiting until the 2nd trimester to tell the world. However, I might tell my mom before then. She can read me like a book anyhow, so I don’t how how long I could keep it silent.

Is there any way to tell your parents sooner? Unfortunately, now that the news it out, you may want to tell them sooner. You never know when someone else could run into them, or if they might see something on Facebook.

That sucks. I’d be so mad at my husband if he did that! He hated waiting till after 13 weeks but I told him how important it was and I would have been pissed if he told ahead of time.

Chances are the cat’s already out of the bag. I’d try to tell your parents and have him tell his mom to not tell anyone else.

Well someone won’t be included next time 🙂

My cube mate just did this to her son and DIL.  On FB.  The mistake they made was not telling her it was a secret but she thinks it should be her spilling the beans since she is the grandmother, not the parents-to-be. 

I think this is completely unfortunate but take it as a lessoned learned.  I would go ahead and tell your parents (whether you have something cute or not) and have your Darling Husband to tell her to stop blabbing, like Camrie said.
