Difficulties in keeping in the news?

My hubby and I have decided not to share the news at least before the first/next ultrasound. (I say next, because I got to go to a "check-up" u/s when I was only six weeks along, to make sure everything was okay, because I naturally worried after two unsuccessful pregnancies. So with the first/next I mean what's usually the first u/s around week 12.)
But because my symptoms are getting stronger (yay!) with fatigue and nausea (not so yay), it's harder and harder for me to keep this under wraps. I feel confident in this pregnancy, because my symptoms are stronger and I would like to discuss about this with friends. I've got several who have children already, and one who is pregnant with her first. It's also more difficult to find excuses for my tiredness now that it's been going on for weeks and not to appear "too tired" at work. I feel like I can't be completely honest when people ask how am I doing.
At the same time, I'm totally agreeing with my hubby about not blurting this out before we've been to the ultrasound again and know more about how this pregnancy is advancing. Also, my hubby just recently got a permanent job after some while of being unemployed and we want to have some time between people knowing about the job and about the baby, so that the first question when telling about the baby won't be "how are you going to manage?" but that news about the job has had time to sink in.
So mixed feelings! Is someone else having a hard time not te tell too?
