We had a lovely weekend celebrating my sister's birthday with my parents back in Kent. And because the celebrations included a spa day (booked a long time ago) with treatments I could no longer enjoy, we told my parents, my sister and her boyfriend at the dinner table on Saturday night - so our secret is (slightly!) out.
It was very nerve-wracking telling them. I was a little worried about how everyone would take the news - and as I've said before I also have a nagging fear that we shouldn't have told anyone before the 12 week point. But we didn't really have much of a choice as we couldn't think of any suitable excuses why I suddenly couldn't take part in any of the spa treatments - or in the champagne drinking!
But everyone was really happy for us and it was lovely to be able to talk about the news with my family. I really, really hope we get the chance to tell the Boy's family after our scan too - I know how happy and excited they will be for us as well.
