Drink, drink, drink

As Betty has already mentioned, we decided that it would be a good idea if she let her best friend in on the whole not-drinking thing. I decided to do the same. My best mate - let's call him Ron - tends to notice if someone isn't drinking and will immediately offer to get them one. If you say no he will then proceed to nag you about it until you give in. This, of course, attracts attention...

He was a tad shocked. Not that we were planning on having children, but that I was willing to give up drinking for 6 months in advance. I didn't have the heart to tell him that I wasn't going to be drinking during the pregnancy either (wouldn't be fair on Betty). Still, he was pleased and excited for us and has promised to make sure that I always have a (non-alcoholic) drink in my hand when I'm out with the guys, so I can refuse offers of a pint without raising too many questions.
