Maybe you can reach a middle ground with him? Perhaps it would be okay for him to tell his parents, but not the entire family. It's important to have someone (other than your spouse) to talk to and offer support. In the beginning of this process I didn't want anyone to know. Over time, we started telling people when they asked when we planned on starting our family. In the end, it's a huge relief not to have this huge secret hanging over our heads. It also cuts out a lot, if not all, of the awkward conversations about babies and starting a family. Ultimately, it's up to you, but I'd try to find some sort of compromise.

yeah thats true it has been a little relief with the people we have told, they all know we are in treatments i just didnt want to tell them exact dates of stuff. Then we found out this morning on facebook my sister in law who is 21 and has no job is pregnant.
