You could create individual cards for them,telling them 'happy xmas grandad' etc!!! I couldnt contain it and had to tell them all!!!

Was just about to reply in baby due in Aug but came here for a nose first!! We're also telling all our family together on Xmas day, I'll be 7 weeks by then, be amazed if we can keep it quiet until then mind! Although this is my second pregnancy and the first time we managed to keep it a secret until I was 10 weeks!! It was a lovely moment last time, my Dad was crying and everything, just hope it will be as special this time. My plan so far is to write at the bottom of each person's card -by the way... I'm pregnant' and see who shouts out first - this only works if you open Xmas cards on Xmas Day like us though!! I'm planning to do the same with my friends!! I can't wait to tell everyone, just hope things go smoothly until then, always feel like I'm jinxing myself when I write on here!!

When i told my parents first time i bought a granparents foto album (fotos of the grandchild) the first foto in it was my scan and the second that mum put in was a foto of me about a wk before i gave birth not very flattering but nice to look back on !!

How many DPO did you get a BFP????
