What To Tell Family When You Have Not Told Them Yet

I was wondering if any one had any advice! I am waiting till my first dr. appt to tell my family and my husbands family about the baby. Since this is my second pregnancy and I want it to be more private like between my husband, my son, and I, I wanted to wait to tell them when I knew all the information like due date etc. The only problem is when I am with them, they ask why I pee so much, or why I am so tired or why I look like I am bloated, and I am running out of excuses and still have 2 more family events before I see the dr the 11th. My grandmother is already trying to get me into to see her bladder specialist to have surgery since she has never seen someone pee so much! I was looking for any suggestions as to what to say at this point...please help!!!

lol sounds like quite the problem... I guess my advice is try (and I know this is hard) to not appear to have any symptoms, act perky and alert even though you are tired, wear baggy clothes to hid the bloating, its easier now that its getting colder just wear loose fitting sweaters or jackets and what not. the peeing thing is harder to hide, if anyone seems concerned about it tell them you already set up an appointment with a doctor to have it checked out, tell them you think its a bladder infection and drink cranberry juice to make it look like you are trying to fix it (I hear cranberry juice helps bladder infections *shrug*) Im not sure what else to tell ya, just hang in there.. good luck!

8 more days... you can do it! Drink cranberry juice and yep...wear jeans and a hoodie or somthing and just say you want to be comfortable.

omg they ask you why you look bloated and look tired? thats rude. you are so polite to not say anything. Id tell them that I have my period and to back off. and if they are asking why you pee so much tell them you like to drink water.

Thanks for all your help. I told them I had the doctor appt. which I do but its just for my US they think its not, and I told them that my period is driving me crazy...It worked for now, but I am counting the days till I can tell them the truth, altough now I don't know if I even want to lol
