I have an appt today to see a Dr. to get more drugs for my hyperemesis. I have to bring my kids since DH is at work in meetings. The kids don't know mommy is pregnant yet and i'd like to keep it that way. how can I make this happen??

How old are your kids? Maybe have the kids stay by the chairs (or toys/books) in the waiting room just while you check in, and have the receptionist tell your dr that you don't want them to know yet. Maybe come up with a code word for "baby" that your kids will have no idea what you are talking about?

I can try that, but if they're as nice and helpful as they are on the phone, I'm not expecting any help from them at all.

That sucks, I'm sorry. I wish I had some intelligent advice to give you but I don't

Well you do have a right to privacy. I would inform them on check in that your children do not know you are expecting and you DO NOT want to share that information at this time. I'd apologize for the inconvenience of having the children with you, but tell them there wasn't another option. They may need to use code words to keep your secret. But spilling the beans means breaking confidentiality, not to mention violating HIPPA regulations.
