Keeping quiet about TTC?

My husband wants to tell his mom that we are TTC, we haven't told anybody yet because I don't want all the questions and added pressure.  His mom has been going through a rough time so he wants to tell her some positive news for a change.  I feel selfish wanting to keep the information to myself, not to mention that it will get out and my family will be hurt that I didn't tell them.  What do you think I should do?

Very true about it being our sex life, and that's what I'm going to tell my husband. Also, since it's been taking awhile, it could add to her worries if we don't get pregnant soon.

Honestly this is your sex lif we're talking about here. While everyone knows you had sex to achieve pregnancy, it's really no one's business when or how it goes on. While i see where your DH is coming from and i sympathize, it would be better to tell her when you are pregnant instead of the fact you're TTC and then every month when you fail....It's no ones concern if you're TTC, not trying, etc =/ PS if this posts repeatedly im sorry, i seem to be having an issue lol
