With the first 3 pregnancies after my first we told the older kid/kids as soon as I tested positive. My oldest was only 7 months old, lol. The new baby was always part of our conversations. When I got pregnant the 5th time we never told them. The only people that knew were us, my friend, other people on this site and my dad. My dad only found out because I miscarried at 12 weeks and I needed him to watch the kids while I went to the ER. We only told the kids I was sick but better. With the last baby I told the kids after I had an ultrasound at like 30 weeks. They never noticed before that and were totally surprised. And only had a couple months to wait before their baby brother arrived.
