When to tell the relatives we're TTC? Or, do we ever tell? We're worried that it will never be a good time in their eyes, or if they get excited too, they won't understand that this might take time. The families still think we're on birth control. They ask all the time when we'll get pregnant, and I usually make a joke about "when the pill stops working" or "when we get a miracle baby."
My husband says we wait until we're pregnant and through the first trimester, then announce the pregnancy and admit we'd been trying.
I'm not sure we'll get the happiest reaction out of that. My family doesn't take surprises well.
