For those of you who have other kids have you told them that you are having a baby yet? What was their reaction? How old are they?

My daughter is 4 and a half who is my shadow sometimes and she asked what "that thing was" (digital pregnancy test) so we told her that it was a test we took and it told us that their was a baby in mommys tummy. I dont think she really comphrends it she seems excited about a baby growing in there but then 2 seconds later said she had a baby puppy growing in her tummy LOL! Hopefully she catches on to the concept! She will either never shut up about it or otherwise forget all about it!

*Thank you *Sharon* for my amazing siggy!*

We told our 8 yr old the other day. He grinned like a nut and has been making sure that I am eating all my meals and pressuring me to exercise hehe. He's so excited. We looked at pictures of what the baby is like at this point, etc.

I told my 6 yr old yesterday. He kinda gets it, but not really, I think.

The 4 yr old has heard about it, but doesn't really seem to care. lol.

I have a 4 year old. She has been begging for a baby for a while now. She saw a few of my friends or her friends welcome a new baby so she asked a lot of questions about it. Now she wants one in my belly so bad. We are not going to tell her for a while because she would tell everyone.

I told my 13 year old daughter right away after my DH. Her and I were out of town for a week when I found out so she was watching out for me since I have history of both ectopic and miscarriage. My son who is 11 was with DH at the time and having Mom withdrawal so DH decided to tell him. Both mine are old enough to understand and (at times) can be helpful.

My son is 10. Up until he was 7, he always asked for a sibling, and then right when we started TTC, he mentioned he would like to be an only child. We are telling him tonight and I am so nervous about how he will feel. I think the reason he said he would like to be an only child was because he knows his friends get annoyed with their younger siblings. However, by the time this baby is 3, he will be 13. So I think he will be very happy once he thinks about it that way.

Mine are 19 months and 9 months so they wouldn't understand right now. Once I have a belly and they can feel the baby kick it'll be easier to explain. As well once the couple is here and they meet them I can hopefully explain to them that this is their baby.

I have a 3 yr old and we are trying to not tell him this time. He has known about the last 3 and I have to tell him it's gone each time, which is horrible. Until we see a heartbeat for this one, we are going to try to keep it a secret from him.

I have a 4.5 year old and a 2 year old. I'm not going to tell either of them until we are ready to tell everyone else. I've been having weird brown CM once in a while, and I don't feel all those twinges that I felt when I was pregnant with my two DDs, so I'm still nervous about this pregnancy.
