Have you told family or friends that you are TTC or are you keeping it private?

My midwife and 1 co-worker (who had problems conceiving, also) are pretty much the only people who know for sure we are TTC. Others know my DH and I want to TTC (or at least know we are considering it). However, they don't know we are actively TTC. My friends and family have been an absolute great support system for us after Alayna died and I'm sure they'd continue that same support if they knew we were TTC...but I'm just not one to go "public" with the intimate details of my sexual life. My family is very open with me in stating that they hope we have a baby soon, so I'm sure they suspect it, but like I said, I've yet to confirm those suspicions. Ideally, no one will know we are even pregnant until I'm through my first trimester.

We're keeping it private. My best friend knows that we'd welcome another, but not that we're actually TTC. I know our families would think we were crazy for wanting to raise a fourth child, so we're not bringing them into it until after we concieve.
