My other kids are 7, 5, and 2. My 5 and 2 year old were with me at the appointment and ultrasound (since they couldn't find the heartbeat). I told my oldest when I told my inlaws-they had picked him up from school because my appointment ran late. I showed my oldest the ultrasound and he figured it out right away and jumped up and down for a good 10 minutes!
we told my son (he's 3) at about 2 months...and weve been talking to him about it everyday just so he isn't suprised by it...and he brings it up now all the time...we just put in bold how hes going to be such a great big brother..hes excited!
Our son is 7, we had received a gift card to the Red Lobster so we took him out to dinner and gave him a card. It said "Congrats" on the outside and on the inside we wrote "You're going to be a big brother!" He was so excited!! I was around 8 weeks when we told him, I wish we would have waited because I landed in the hospital a week later and we almost lost the baby, but things are fine now!!
With my last pregnancy I was 18-20 weeks when we told our 4 yr old. We took her to the u/s with us and she found out there.
This time we told our (now) 7 yr old and 2 yr old at 8 weeks 5 days. We showed our daughter the u/s pic and asked if she knew what it was she said "a baby?.... WE'RE GETTING A BABY?!?!?!" lol
