When do you plan on telling your kids about your pregnancy? DH asked me when I wanted to tell our 3 and I don't know. I know I won't tell them until after my appointment Wednesday but I also know as soon as we tell them we might as well tell everyone because our 7 year old will probably tell everyone she knows. So I'm curios as to when everyone else is spilling the beans to their kids.

We've never waited. When I found out I was pregnant with #3 it was the kids who told DH (well, in a round about way--I had "I'm the big brother" shirts made for both of them when we were TTC and they were wearing them when he came home from work that day). This time we just waited a few days to tell them, and yes they've already made the announcements to their classes apparently!

My kids are 11 and 13.
And they've been begging me since tom and i got married for a small one. We will wait a few weeks, at least until our dr appt. Megan would be insanely excited and i don't want to break her heart if things don't work out.

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

Already did. One guessed and the other I told the next day or the day after because I was feeling sick and wanted her to understand why.

Not until around 12 weeks or so, we told them around 6 weeks the first pregnancy and ended up losing it and it killed them. So I never told them anything about the second pregnancy we lost. and will wait to tell about this one as well.

I always get horrid m/s with daily puking by the 7th week. I won't be able to hide it beyond that. To this day if I throw up the kids immediately ask if I'm pregnant.

I am not exactly being entirely secretive around my 5 year old, but he hasn't figured it out yet. I plan to really tell him at 11 weeks, which also happens to be his 6th birthday. I am going to make him a "Big Brother" T-shirt and see if he figures it out. I think I will tell my parents the same way by having him go over to their house with his shirt on.

Cautiously expecting a little one sometime in June, and always remembering my 5 little ones that left too soon.
