Have you told any family or friends that you are currently TTC?  What factors went into making that decision?

I told my mom only because it reached a point where nothing was going right and I just broke down and started crying when I came up there for christmas. My mother-in-law knows only because it didn't seem like a big deal for her to know - and she wouldn't tell others. As far as I know, those are the only ones who know we are TTC - only because we are having difficulties though. I don't want anyone else to know - though I'm sure most would assume we were trying, they wouldn't know we were failing at it though. Not sure if we will tell anyone after the first trimester if we do get pregnant either, since they say when you are infertile, there is higher risk of miscarriage when you get pregnant.

I haven't told anyone that we are TTC, it's just too personal and I don't need the added stress of people constantly asking questions.

My dh wanted to tell his mom but I said no because she wouldn't be able to keep quiet about it. I'm glad that yours are able to keep a secret. I'm not sure how soon I would tell either, it will be hard to contain it but don't want to get ahead of myself.

No, I really haven't said anything to anyone about TTC. I had surgery this past Tuesday for endometriosis, and some people knew about that, but I really didn't discuss anything further than that.
