We’ve been harbouring a little secret in our house: I’m pregnant and baby number three is on the way!

It’s a relief to finally be able to let the cat out of the bag – due to our history of miscarriage we wanted to wait until we passed the 12 week mark before saying anything, just in case.

But so far so good, and given I seemed to pop straight away (I’m blaming shot-to-pieces stomach muscles) there was no hiding it for much longer.

Earlier this summer I wrote a post on quirky ways to announce you’re expecting which gave me some great ideas for making our own announcement, and I thought long and hard about how to do it.

I love blackboard/whiteboard ones, so that’s what we did when we made our announcement on social media this week.

I'm pregant

I must admit I was rather pleased with the way it turned out!

I have to say, though, that I’ve been surprised at the reaction – with baby number one and baby number two we received nothing but congratulations, but this time round there’s been lots of comments asking if we’re:

a) Mad
b) Bonkers
c) Crazy

This hadn’t occurred to me, and it’s made me wonder – are we mad, bonkers or crazy? Or all three?

Either way, it’s a bit late now!
