    Default Keeping it a secret is driving me nuts!

    is anyone else finding it really hard to keep their pregnancy a secret? I am currently 4w+5d and driving myself nuts trying to keep it to myself. My husband, mum and sister know, but I don't know how I'm going to keep it at that for the next 7 weeks? I want to shout it from the rooftops (ok maybe a slight exaggeration).

    Haha at first it was really hard to keep it from our friends but it's kind of gotten easier the longer it's been. We only just told our parents on Christmas at 10w5d and they're the only people we'll probably tell until I get to 20 weeks or until people start asking questions.

    We told our family as soon as we knew, but no one else knows - and I'm now 24 weeks! Gets easier the longer you are pregnant I think

    The first time we told 2 couples close to us after our 6 week 4 day scan. Cat was out of the bag and wildfire spread although it was thought to be a rumour about the twins part tadaaaaaaa

    This time we kept it to ourselves until 12 weeks (except for immediate fam) but I was sure everyone knew anyway... Not 1 person knew and the reveal was 1000x better seeing the first hand face to face reactions. Just keep busy and save your news as best you can maybe write a preg diary!

    @KitiK curious to know how come you've decided to keep it a secret so long? If you don't mind me asking
