Posted by   + Show Post
For those with other children, how and when did you tell them?

Mine are 4 & 7. We have not told them yet.

I have a dd that is 7 and a dd thay is 3. When I found out I was preggo with my second dd I was about 8 weeks. Already had a ultrasound to confirm and heard heartbeat. Well me and hubby and dd all went out to eat at pondarosa. My hubby told our dd that mommy has a baby in her bell and shes gonna b a big sissy. Well she.was so excited that she grabbed my shirt and up it went and she kept saying where is it(the baby).

My son is 5 yo and figured it out by himself, I had pretty bad morning sickness for weeks, and he remembered my sisters having it , so one day he asked me " when is my little brother or sister going to get here?" so at that point I admitted to being pregnant and explained it to him.

 I honestly think DD knew before I did. LOL. She kept talking about being a big sister and how much she really wanted a little sister. Then it turned into...Im going to be a big sister. We told her yeah someday... and kinda just brushed it off... well a few days later AF didnt show but 2 lines on the test did. So we talked to her about the whole big sister role until we got it confirmed at 8 weeks.... but she knew. When we told her that I have a baby in my belly.... she just looked at us like... umm yeah I have been telling you that for weeks now. LOL then a little while later it sunk in and she was so excited. She was great at keeping it a secret. She even came to the genderscan with us and kept that a secret too

My oldest (11) knew about this one as soon as I tested. She walked in the bathroom just as I was looking at the test and. I couldn't help but smile a really cheesy smile.. she knew. With the other 2 we waited til I knew for sure around 14 weeks before we told her.

I told my 4 year old when I was just starting to show and she did not fully understand yet so I sat her down and we watched a baby story. She actually sat there with me and watched the whole thing and payed attention. Now she is touching my tummy and the other day she put a sticker on my chest and said one for mommy and one on my tummy and was like one for baby. It was so cute, I say the sooner you tell them the better.
