    (hope that worked)

    The amount of people that didnt 'get' it was huge. i thought it was obvious both for announcement and gender. was fun as they figured it out though.
    That is awesome. Love it.

    We told everyone in different ways.
    My dad (who I am really close to) I brought a picture frame that said "I Love Poppy" and put a pic of my digi hpt that said prengant 2-3 in there, and gave it too him, It took him a min, but he was a blubbering, emotional, excited mess when he worked it out

    My sis lives in another state so I skyped her and said hay, look what I brought Dad and showed her the frame and pic

    MIL and FIL, we brought 2 mugs, one saying grandmather and the other saying grandfather, we stuck a bib in each and said "put your glasses on so you can see, but we saw something at the shops we thought suited you both" and gave them the mugs MIL took about a full minute to understand, but FIL clicked pretty quickly.

    bff's - we were out for lunch (me and 3 others) and one of them started saying 'you know such and such is utd' and I came out with 'I know someone else who is pregnant' they all looked at me, jaws dropped and started squealing with delight (they knew we had been ttc for a while)

    others, I think I will show an ultrasound pic when we get one

    We have settled on a bib that says 'I love my Grandma & Grandpa' and a knitted reindeer beanie since we are having an Xmas baby. I will wrap each one so that M&D can open them at the same time & work it out. I think I might need to steal the beanie back though (its so adorable) & use it for my friends as a 'Look what I bought the other day...' and then await their reactions. I think we will do something fun for the FB announcement, but plenty of time to play around with that. Thanks for the great ideas ladies!
