Can't help with the question but mad curious to know how telling your folks about the pregnancy went. Feel free to tell me to sod off and mind my own business.

SO not out of the will yet - BUT we are gonna call him after dad if we have a boy, just to be on the safe side!

Calling a boy after your Dad would be a shrewd move alright!!
