Coming from a woman who has been trying for a very long time to conceive with no luck, don’t say anything. I have not miscarried and pray that I don’t ever have to but I can’t imagine them wanting to even think about it during a family get together.

And I don’t say this to be mean at all, seriously, but you probably aren’t the person they want to talk to about their struggles. My sister is on her third, she gets pregnant SO easily, and she trys to talk to me but it just makes me more upset.

Try to just relax and have fun. Also, congrats! So exciting!

Yes, but sensitive.  Maybe don’t make a huge announcement and force them to act happy in front of your whole family.  Of course they’ll put on a happy face but it could be difficult.

Are you planning on sharing at your family gathering on Memorial Day, which is Monday, May 27th?

Edited, since I saw that you clarified that you won’t be seeing your relatives until Memorial Day: I wouldn’t stress about it right now, it’s still months away and your aunt’s miscarriage will not be as “fresh.”

I wouldn’t say anything to either of them regarding their fertility. I’m sure they’ll be happy for you when you make your announcement.

@figgnewton:  That’s a ways away and who knows where they might be in their TTC journeys by then. Don’t worry yourself too much until the time draws closer. But when it comes I’m sure they will feel a combination of happiness for you and sadness for themselves, it’s only natural and there’s nothing you can do about that.

Don’t say anything until the reunion, and don’t try to be the hero to your aunt that miscarried. Just don’t say anything regarding that and I think you will be fine. Congrats by the way
