Congrats are in order, I hope you have a happy healthy pregnancy!
Maybe 1 on 1 is a good idea, our son was 13 when we got pregnant and his reaction was very subduded....it was hard for him to imagine a baby! I would sugest telling thenm in a cheerful manner and dont dwell on it at first, let them see that life hasnt changed right away (I hope you are not very ill with the pregnancy!) We took Travis to an ultrasound, and did family tie dyes shirts when I hit the 3rd trimester. We helped Travis make a baby shirt and talked about how we would all wear our stuff for a family photo when the baby was born, he really liked that.
Now at 2 and 16 they are best buddies and Travis is an amazing help. He says he cant imagine our life without Ben. I hope it goes well for you!
