Congratulations, future auntie dino!

"I had a scan today in Islamabad" should be set to music, don't you think?

(Due in July? And they only just mentioned it? Were they being cagy or didn't they realise? I am going to be a great-aunt in June and they told us before Christmas!!! )

They knew she was pregnant, but not how far on she was until the scan today.

One of those wonderful symptom-free jobbies then! Lucky girl!

Where will the baby be born?

In Berlin - they will come back from Afghanistan some time in May, I think (my brother worked in Berlin for several years before going to Afghanistan, and met his girlfriend in Berlin).

This your first experience of auntiehood then? Auntiedom? Congratulations!

Oh good (I think I'd probably rather have a baby in Europe.)
