We're 7 weeks pregnant, and my dh husband and I have only told our parents, and my boss. We couldn't not tell our parents, and I figured that I better tell my boss right away, due to the appointments and stress. She's supportive, and I know she won't tell any other coworkers. Last time it was happiness all around, but my mom took it really hard, even though she knew we were going to start trying. She cried for a long time, and said she hoped nothing would happen to this baby. My in laws are taking it better, but of course their son didn't almost die 8 months ago because of severe pre-e. Usually I have big trouble keeping a secret, but I'm almost dreading the time when we plan to start telling people. I'm really thinking about just letting people find out when it becomes obvious, expect for other family members. One friend I had from high school told me flat out when I was in the hospital a week after Tyler's funeral when I had DVT's that she couldn't get beind us trying for more children, and some people just aren't meant to have them. She and I are no longer friends, and I can't help feeling that people who say nothing on the subject feel like she does.
