So for mommies that have older children, how have they taken the news of a new baby? Have you told them yet? My 4 yr old daughter actually came barging into the bathroom when I was testing.. and asked what I was doing so I told her right then. This was the conversation:

Me:Guess what, mommy is going to have another baby
Jocelyn: Yeah... a baby.... (moment of silence) like the kitty!!
Me: No, a baby like you and Gabe.
Jocelyn: Yeah, you are going to have a baby like ME!!
Jocelyn: Like a BIG GIRL! *jumps*

And pretty much everyday since she has reminded that me that I will be having a baby like a big girl! haha. Gabriel is clueless but I imagine he will be much less enthusiastic about the idea.

I won't tell DD until i'm further along because she has a big mouth and im sure every student in her JK class and teachers will know. I'm not far enough along to feel comfortable with that yet. I think I'll tell her next year in January or even later. I think she'll be excited because she's obsessed with babies, but once baby is actually here and living with us I don't think she will be very happy at ALL

Eliza is too little to understand at all. She just says "Yeah, baby brother sister!"

We'll have the usual toddler jealousy I'm sure, but I lucked out and got a very sweet, gentle kid. She loves to give all her toys to other kids and isn't possessive at all. That may change, but I think we're going to have an easier time than some.

I haven't told my girls yet. Lily has a big mouth and would tell everyone. I'm not ready to tell my parents yet, so we'll have to wait. I happened to be looking at maternity clothes online and she watched me for a minute. Then she said "How come all those people look like they're having a baby?" She's going to figure it out any day now. She'll be great- in her mind it will be someone else that she can boss around. Abri will be interesting to see. She is such a mommy's girl but very maternal with her dolls.

Haven't told our kids yet, won't for a long while yet. We told them around 8 weeks last time, and they were pretty upset the day their baby brother/sister had to go to heaven! So I think its better to wait.

They will be SUPER excited though!!

I haven't told my daughter and I won't until I am ready for my family to know. She will announce it to everyone.

I want to tell my oldest so bad because she will be sooooo excited but Im not going to tell my kids until after 16 weeks. I told them last time and it just about ripped my heart out telling my oldest her baby brother went to heaven. I don't want to have to do it again.

I really can't wait to tell her though. She is ALL about babies and will be a great helper.

I am super excited to tell my 4 year old... but I have not. I will tell him after we see the first heartbeat ultrasound But I know he can not keep a secret at all..... so I have to make sure to let everyone know before him!

AWe havent told them yet. Last time we told before 12wks I m/c then they went around telling everybody I was having a baby and then I had the gut wrenching job off expaining. It was horrible. Im sure they will figure it out from me being sick just giving it time lol

We haven't really told Connor yet, he is a parrot these days and since we are not telling anyone yet, I just know he would drop keywords at inappropriate times! lol We will tell him and make sure he understands after we hear the heartbeat!

We lined up our girls (11, 8, 6) and told them we wanted a picture of them. Instead of having them say "cheese", we had them say "I'm going to have a baby brother or sister!" The oldest got it right away. The younger ones took a second to understand. But they are all EXCITED!! They have told everyone! Here is the picture we took:
