I am expecting baby number five, How do I tell my family that I am expecting?

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. A lot of our family members have told us all of the time to try for that boy...We 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!!!

  • I had the same problem when I was expecting number four.. not because I wanted to surprise them, but because I was afraid of their reaction. We just called around asking if twins ran in the family lol.
