    I am sooo nervous! I am 29, have a job, a home and a husband, yet I feel like a teenager!

    I am very excited as well, but doubt I will get through the moment without blubbing!

    Yay! How exciting, Mightyspu! We are telling my parents tomorrow also, at their Christmas Eve party. We will arrive a little early to give them the news. I don't think I would be able to say it without blubbering either, so I made a shirt. It's kind of silly. I took a picture of one of my homemade hamburger buns sitting in the oven. I printed it out on a t-shirt transfer with my due date underneath and put it on a t-shirt. I'm just going to put that on over the shirt I plan to wear for the evening, then when we get there and I take off my coat we will just have to wait and see how long it takes them to figure out what's going on. Haha We hope it doesn't take them too long!

    Ah Heather, that's a great way of telling them! You'll have to let us know how long it takes for someone to notice!

    We are also revealing our secret at the Christmas eve party, which dh can't attend the first part of as he is working. I have to wait until about 8 in the evening for him to arrive before I say anything! I was going to tell my Mum and Sister that I need to give them their presents early and hand over copies of my scan pic and see what they do!!

    Oh, I bet that will be torture having to wait for DH to get there! How lucky you are to have had a scan already. I won't be having one until January 11.

    We get to have our shirt fun tomorrow night, then we get to do it all over again on Sunday when we do Christmas with DH's family!

    I had my scan at about 8 weeks. It's best for you to wait a wee bit as you'll see so much more!

    ARGH I can't wait! Have been avoiding my parents because it's so hard not to tell!

    Right, the big announcement didn't go quite to plan as my sister revealed she is also pregnant! I called dh, who was still at work and made the family open the cards I gave them. Everyone very pleased (of course) and it's great to have my sister going through the same thing at the same time! she is due about 3 weeks before me, and this is not her first child, so she'll also be able to give me a few pointers

    I'm sure it will be really exciting to share the experience with her... I'm sorry your plans didn't turn out your way, but I'm sure they were happy anyhow. :wohoo:

    How exciting that you are both pregnant together, your parents must be so over the moon.
    Congratulations to you and your sister:hugs:

    Thanks ladies, I'm not too fussed that it didn't quite go to plan, but I am so pleased that there is someone I know I can turn too! My parents were thrilled, as you can imagine! fil is still in shock though!

    I felt the same way!! Weird isn't it, I felt like I should be apologising!! My mum had a slight tear, as did my sister. Dad was ok, just a little shocked (in a nice way!) I'm not much of a cryer so I was dry!
