Telling siblings:

Alex practically told us. The night before I tested (I was 90% sure I was pregnant) when we were putting Alex to bed, she started talking about a baby boy. It was eerie. Todd and I just looked at each other like "how does she know?" The next day I started telling her we were having a baby and there's a baby growing in my belly. She says it's a boy. I'm pretty sure she's right.

Last weekend, I got out my really good Bradley homebirth video to show the girls. Alex has seen it before but it's been at least 4 months. We talked about mommy having a baby, and she starting telling me about how my tummy would "get big" and the baby will "come out" (as she looked between my legs). Then she said there's a baby in her belly too.

Cori was mesmerized by the birthing video and they watched it 4 times in a row. Cori mostly liked seeing the baby nurse. Sometimes I think she remembers nursing. I know Alex remembers nursing. . .

I'm really excited about the prospect of having Alex at the birth, but I don't know about Cori. She may be too young to see me working so hard without being able to climb all over me.

I want to find lots of homebirth videos especially ones with children in them, so they can be a little more prepared. I'm even thinking it might be nice to film the birth, so they can watch themselves at the birth.

Me! I never thought I'd be lucky enough to have 3 kids, but here I am! My boys will be 5 and 2 1/2 when the new babe comes.

This is pregnancy #5 hoping for baby #3. My older two are 5 and 8. we haven't told them yet due to our previous losses. Dd 5 will be totally over the moon. She has been dying for a baby in the house for a very long time.

During my last m/c I was sitting on the lounge with dh. Dd came up and sat beside us and said "Wouldn't it be just the loveliest thing if we had a little baby sitting here with us?" That gave me the resolve to try again.
