I can't help myself but tell DS, even though my thinking brain is telling me to wait until I am closer to the due date (or at least showing). But I am so excited to give him a sibling. Since we started TTC, we have been talking about babies in bellies and he plays that a lot. He loves letters and I hear him saying "Mama D has a baby d in her belly." Last night I was telling him that mama may have a baby in her belly he he insisted on seeing LOL. I told him it would be a long time, around Thanksgiving before the baby came.<br><br>
When did you tell your oldest children about their impending siblings? When did they "get it"? Is it cruel to tell him so early?

I have 3 and told my kids right away but with this one i'm being a little more careful. You see, back in 2003 i was so excited to be pg but then had a m/c and the kids were devastated. I want to make sure everything is ok before telling them this time around, at least until i'm in a safer zone. But that's just my situation..you have no idea how much i want to tell them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
