Buy a little box of chocs on your way over and write a card that reads 'I can't wait to meet you next May, Granny.'

I'd get her a card with 'happy birthday granny' written in it and tell her it's early. Pretend it came in the mail.

If you don't like her say: 'We found a lump, it's growing, I'll have to go into hospital at some point' and let her sweat for a bit!

Take her some knitting needles and a ball of wool.

its my second, when i fell pg with my first my sisters little boy had just bin born and was in intensive care so when i broke my news i was pg it come at the wrong time cause everyone in our family was upset about my nephew. so this time i wanted it to be special.
