It was slightly nerve-wracking telling everyone.. I'm not the keenest on being the centre of attention and it felt strange to 'have news'. No-one really talks about how awkward it feels to say the words "I'm pregnant" out loud.
We decided to invite everyone that could make it from our immediate family round for a BBQ the Saturday after our first scan. We didn't want to do a 'reveal' or even an announcement, so we decided to leave it up to Vivienne to tell people when everyone had arrived. She told a few people, before going round everyone else showing them the scan picture - it was so lovely and low-key and the day felt so special. I don't think anyone could believe it!
Our friends came around a few hours later and we told them as they arrived. Everyone seemed to have been out the night before so was slightly worse for wear and tired, and we all hung out eating burgers and treats until the sun went down. It felt nice for the news to be 'out', we also found out some of our friends were expecting their first baby too, a few weeks after us; it's all feeling a bit real and exciting!
