    It has just dawned on me that I am pregnant and so is my sister-in-law.
    When she announced her engagement 2 years ago, we over-shadowed it by getting pregnant with LO, now she's due in May after a miscarriage a few months back, and we've just found out we're having baby number 2, I feel like I'm kinda stealing her thunder :nope:

    I hope she doesn't see it that way because it wasn't done intentionally! I really like her, she's lovely. I feel really awful, How can we tell her?

    Agreed, or wait a few after she announces so that she has some time alone in the lime light.

    I would wait until after the scan to tell her. That way she gets 7 more weeks to have the attention on her. I'm sure she will be thrilled that her LO will have a cousin close to her LO in age.

    Thank you all for you're kind words, OH couldn't wait to spread the news so we have told our families, she's thrilled for us, and to have someone to share the experience with! I'm so pleased she didn't take it badly! :flower:

    I am glad she didn't take it badly! When I was pregnant with Noah my best friend was due 2 weeks after me and it was lovely having someone to share everything. In the end I was only 5 days earlier than her!
