My daughter is and we want to tell her so bad but I think what if something happened? We just found out a couple of days ago ourselves. She has wanted this for so long and I want to tell her so bad. How do you explain if something would happen to the baby?Answer Question

I'm not for keeping kids away from biology. If you want to tell her, go ahead. I lost a pregnancy at 17 weeks and my then 2 year old knew about it. We explained what happened and how the baby died. I think it helped him process why I was sick and sad, where he would have been clueless regarding the up-heaval of the house had the pregnancy not been shared.
If there is a chance that she'll hear other people talking about it, I'd say let her know so that she hears it from you first. If something does go wrong with the pregnancy, just tell her what happened. I don't think it really needs to be a big deal - sure she'll be disappointed, but she won't have missed out on sharing the excitement now. That is, after all, life - mixes of excitement and disappointment.
