Hi ladies,

Have you announced your pregnancy with friends and family yet?

Hey, I am only just 10 weeks pregnant, but I announced it to my close family recently (so they would understand when I rushed out of a room or was rather neurotic!).

My partner and I popped round for a cup of tea (made sure my brother would also pop round for a drink). We brought a lovely cake with us, sat them all down and then told them we were expecting :0)

I didn't expect so many tears or joy and big hugs! Out came the Champagne (I stuck to my mint tea, obviously).

I'm counting down to 12 weeks when we plan to tell everyone else. We are going to tell everyone at a big dinner we are planning. Very excited to be able to share the news.... at least then they will understand why i'm avoiding the big booze ups, the girly ski days and the paintballing!!
