Well that was a disaster! Last night was my sister’s birthday and her friends and I went to a Japanese restaurant, out to see the fireworks and then to a bar…
First of all Lily came here to get ready and I pretended to have a vodka and coke – she had a real one, mine was just coke.
I prepared my back story saying I’d drunk a whole bottle of wine the night before and had a dicky tummy… She straight away asked if I was pregnant. I told her I wasn’t and that I came on that day.
The restaurant was tough, everyone assumed I was pregnant as I decided to just have water. I told them Chuck and I had decided to try in January.
Then we walked to the fireworks and Lily handed me a cup of wine. Again I pretended to drink this and binned it as soon as I could.
At the bar I ordered g&t for Lily and just T for me… I’m not sure she bought it as she asked me again.
I took her off to one side and said I’d thought I was pregnant last month but I’d done a test last night and discovered I wasn’t so Chuck and I had cracked open a wine.
And that now we’re gonna wait until January.
THEN in a new twist I discovered Isabel, one of our dearest friends, who was at the party and also not drinking, is pregnant!
She didn’t tell me but I asked Lily and she confirmed it – apparently Isabel isn’t quite at the three month mark so didn’t want everyone to know.
Still I maintained my innocence but I think they all assume I’m pregnant… They’re all Lily’s friends though so it doesn’t really matter what they think.
My own crew are never going to believe I’m not pregnant…
I am sooooo excited about Isabel’s pregnancy though!!! We’re gonna be mums at the same time if my “sesame seed” stays put for the whole 9 months!!!!!
Yaaaaaay. Cannot wait for the next 8 weeks to be up so I can just tell people. This sucks.
