Hello everyone and thankyou for your replies - I also liked the way mum of 2's husbands told his family - my husband said a similar thing with our first one - we had planned to go on a trip to the Solomon Islands in April 2003, but when found out I was pregnant and that my EDD was in April, we realized that we would not be going. So, my husband said to my parents and family (after we had been at their house for a few hours) said in a very 'off hand casual manner' "by the way, thought we'd let you know that we are not going to the Solomon Islands in April next year". Then he waited to be asked why. Then he answered "because Linda (me) looks like she has to be in hospital sometime around then". My parents was very shocked (thinking that something was wrong with me) and then my dad clicked moments later "you are having a bub!" Then they were all surprised and happy.
By the way, I am not presently pregnant, but am trying for #2. (actually would liked to have been pregnant by now as my little girl recently turned one, but, has not yet happened).
Just trying to think ahead for how to make 'the announcement' when it happens.
Thanks for your ideas, and will appreciate any more!
