Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I seem to almost have the same situation. No one in my family knew who the father of my baby boy was so it was very disturbing news that i had gotten preggo. I am now with my 2nc pregnancy and i am with the father of my 2nd baby, i didnt want to let anyone know for several reasons, because i knew i would probably dissapoint my mother again and i have some envious people that wish they could have a baby. So it is normal but if you want to enjoy this pregnancy with calm and ease, please do tell, you will feel open and better. You will not be comfortable inside if you only knew

im 20 im married to the best guy ever (mason) this is my 1st pregnancy im 39 weeks  im having a little boy (drake) anyways when i first got pregnant i was very nervous about telling my family i new they would be happy but i have a few envious people that cant have kids and want them very bad so i was worried that even if they were happy for me and mason i new some of them might be upset but i ended up telling them and they were all very happy and excited so i think you should tell them just to get it off your chest so you feel better

I'm 22 and about 26 weeks pregnant with my second child. My first is almost ten months old. I was scared to tell people because our children are so close in age. We just finally told my husbands mom and sister about two weeks ago.

tell them when ur ready. i had a miscarraige last yr so i didnt wanna tell anybody till i was baout four months along with this one. but i couldnt wait that long so i ended up tellin them around 9 weeks i think it was. just tell them when u feel comfortable, its about u and the baby not them

THANK U FOR YOUR ANSWERS. ALL VERY HELPFUL. I GUESS IM JUST NERVOUS BECAUSE EVERYONE IS SO JUDGMENTAL ESPECIALLY AT WORK. WITH MY FIRST PREGNANCY THEY HAD SO MANY COMMENTS TO SAY AND I JUST DONT WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING NEGATIVE THIS TIME.  LIKE OH NOT AGAIN OR JUST ANYTHING RUDE.  ESPECIALLY FROM MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

ill be 21 in october and im 5 months pregnant with my second child also.im with my second childs father,and he's been there since my first child was an infant.with my first pregnancy i never told som members of my family i was pregnant until i had the baby,because of how judgemental i knew they were.But at the end of the day there will always be people who support your decisions and some that won't its just a fact of life.You can't live trying to make everyone happy,so do what makes you feel the best.

I just found out I'm about 6 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. However my 2nd lil girl just turned 7 months old. I was suppose to have had my tubes tied with her but as I was going in for my c-section I had a sudden change of heart,so I didn't do it. I live in GA and my family lives in TN, And the las time I went in I was craving some pretty weird things and my mother had told me I had better not be pregnant again, so Thats why I havent told my family but My Husband has told his and they are SO EXCITED!!! However its funny my 6 year old had been tellin me I was pregnant way before I found out, but we haven't told her yet cause she likes to tell everyone before we get a chance. But good Luck with everything I know how you feel especially with peoples comments with my 1st daughter I had my doctor tell me it was just babies having babies... Puh.LEASE!!!! Some poeple just dont know when to keep their rude comments to theirselves.

I'm 26 and I'll be 14 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child in 2 days, and I still haven't told any of my family besides my sister who I live with. My mom lives in NJ and I moved to TN in May to be with my sister whos in the Army. I needed help raising my 2 yr old son, and she was happy to have me move in with her. I got pregnant with my bf after going out for 3 months, and my mom hasn't even met him yet. I'm supposed to be going to NJ for xmas next month and there will be no way of hiding it then, since I'm already showing a little. I'm really nervous about her finding out since I was already struggling raising my son. She's just gonna think I'm ruining my life and we will probably fight most of the time I'm there. I'm soo not looking forward to xmas.
