My 4yo dd has been begging daddy to give mommy a baby for months now. She so wants a brother or sister and now we've conceived, hurray!. We are not telling anyone outside of family until after first tri...but dd???? She would be soooo crushed if something happened. On the other hand I feel like I am hiding something from her and having to make up stories about why I am feeling the way I am. I also think that her chipper blabbering would let the cat out of the bag to others. Neither decision seems to be right...to tell or not to tell?
When have you all waited until to tell you other children? And Why?
