    I can't believe the time is almost here! When I got my BFP on the 1st of November Xmas Day seemed an absolute age away to be able to finally tell people and now I am just so excited!!!!

    We have a nephew on both side of the family who we are going to use to help break the news, I just can't wait to see all their faces as I don't think they suspect a thing!!!

    Happy Christmas everyone!!!! :dust: to all!!!

    I'm telling my family on Christmas Day too.
    We have bought a really nice christmas card, and inside we are putting a scan picture, and writing:
    To Nanny and Grandad,
    Can't wait to meet you in July
    Love Baby Boo

    I'm telling mine on Christmas EVe but I think they have guessed as I keep refusing wine - so not like me!!!!!

    Is it weird that I am a bit nervous of telling them.....

    We are also telling our families Christmas day. They definitely do not have a clue :haha:

    The best bit is his sister is in Oz and just told us she is going to visit in August :haha: we thought we might tell her by asking her to babysit when she visits and see if she gets it (this is our first) :rofl:

    oh oh oh we're telling on Christmas eve too! I'm actually quite nervous about it! I have no idea who to actually announce it in any original or fun way. Any ideas? I haven't had a scan yet so no pics. I love the t-shirt idea though, adorable :)

    I am going to tell on New Year. I don't want to tell on Xmas cause I am having my nutchal scan on the 28th. I prefer to tell them on New Year when I have the result from the test and everything is fine.

    We have already told our parents so I think that takes the pressure off a little, its just our sisters, aunts and uncles to find out!

    I am nervous about telling some of our friends, I think they will think we are mad!

    I'm a little nervous about telling everyone on xmas day but we are. I'm only 11 wks but we had a dating scan the other day and were told that everything should be ok. Going back again for the 12 wk scan on the 4th Jan.

    Good luck everyone... this is when all the questions and fuss begins!:happydance:

    So many people sharing the joy on Christmas day!!! Us too, I have bought two gorgeous photo albums that say " Grandparent's Boasting Book" on the front, I took our scan pics into Kodak and got copies so there is a scan pic on the first page of each book. They are both wrapped up and dying to be opened under our tree! It will be so lovely as we live about 150 miles from our family and for the first time ever people are coming to us for Christmas - we will wake up Christmas morning, have a leisurely breakfast and unwrap parents (don't know how I will control my excitement at them unwrapping their 'special present'!!!!! ) :happydance::happydance::happydance::happydance::happydance::happydance::happydance:

    After that I have somehow got to cook Christmas dinner but at least I won't have to pretend I don't have ms anymore! LOL!!! :sick: (although it isn't half as bad as it was!).
