How do I tell my family that I am pregnant with baby number 5?

I am married to the love of my life. He knows that we are expecting but I don't know how to tell our family that we are expecting again. I have been told all of the time to try for that boy...I have four girls. I just don't know when the best time is to tell them. All of my previous kids have been blurted out in anger or excitement at his family or mine....HELP!!!

  • Make it a "present" at Christmas. Are you going to see family over the holidays? If so wrap up something baby related and give it to them and have them figure it out. When I was pregnant with DS we made ornaments for my mom and MIL and it had my husband's name, my name, my daughter's name and then "baby 2006" on it. It took a min or two but then they got it and everyone was excited.
