How to tell people

I am almost 11 weeks along with number two and we haven't told my husbands parents yet. This is a problem because my family knows and I'm starting to show (also my family lives like ten minutes away from his family so it's totally possible for them to see/know the same people). My family is aware that his parents don't know, so they won't go yelling it from the rooftops, but I worry about something slipping on Facebook. I don't want them to find out from other people.

Here is the issue. They were far less than supportive of our first pregnancy. To the point where his mom's actual reaction was to ask me "how could you do this to him?" mind you we were married and graduated from college and employed so I don't get what the issue was.
They have made it abundantly clear that they do not want us to have another one. His mon tells me pretty much every time we are over that I need to wait several years (we are over at least twice a week). I tried to casually break the news a month ago and his dad kind of caught on and said "are you announcing something?" his mom's response was to yell "try better not be!"
So- suggestions or anecdotes for this situation? In fully aware that it's none of their business when we procreate. I don't need anyone to tell me to ignore them. I know that. But we still have to tell them because I'm starting to show and everyone else knows...
