So I was just about 10 weeks pregnant when I found out I had miscarried (still has not passed nor have I started bleeding), but there is definitely no baby anymore :( I had already told my 6 year and 4 year old they were going to have a baby brother or sister and they were excited, especially the 4 year old. She was pretending she had a baby in her belly too.
I was terrified to tell them and wasn't sure how to answer all the questions, but we had the conversation tonight at dinner. Surprisingly, they took it rather well. Not emotional or upset. Mostly the questions were about pregnancy and what happens when you deliver a baby. They asked about them being in my belly and themselves as babies. I was open and honest with everything. I told them how they were delivered and everything and they seemed satisified with that.
Did anyone else have to experience this and did your kids react similarly?
