    So some of you might remember i was hmming about whether to do one or not as it seemed a little impersonal, but it seemed egocentric to message everyone individually (obviously we have spoken to close friends and family). So, i took a plum from our garden (12 weeks is apparently plum size) took a photo of it and wrote that it was the size of our baby, and we couldn't wait to meet it in April. It is just right for me as i didn't want to share my ultrasound photos and it means only people who have read what I've written will get it :)

    totally pleased with myself lol

    Such a lovely idea! :cloud9:

    I'm really stuck for ideas. I LOVE the shoe idea Rachel Stevens did, but it'd look really sad if I did that now. :wacko:

    Sweet idea, Moomin. I'm not keen on sharing my scan photo on fb either.

    FAB idea!
    I'm not planning on a FB announcement this time. I will text those closest to me. I have a few friends on there I know are really devastated lately from all the birth announcements etc. because they are trying for babies and having no luck sadly :(
    I just feel bad and a bit guilty - they are my friends and I don't want to upset them. I feel a bit greedy too - this one is my 3rd.
    :(

    xxxxx

    ^ i completely get that, quite a few of my friends have had babies recently so i hope none are in that position - its very hard to tell though. I would hope anyone who knew me wouldn't think it was done out of malice but it is partly why i wanted it quite low key

    That's cute :) I always like the fruit references because everyone can correlate a size. If I can keep hiding it, I'll go with a "I love my lil sister/brother" tshirt on my son, who should be about 9 months then. I might have the option of a Christmas theme, too, depending on whether they do 18,19,or 20weeks for my gender scan.

    My family knows but as far as FB goes, I need to keep it a secret because I have a lot of coworkers on there. I'm up for a promotion, which I doubt they'll give me right now if they realize I'll be going out on leave again soon. I waited until 14 weeks before I told anyone last time, so what's 5 more weeks? (Assuming I can physically his it that long)
