I have a 7 year old and 3 year old. I am only 5 weeks, but wondering when we will tell the 7 year old. My DH travels Monday - Thursday, so I am alone with the boys all week long. I know that my napping and overall exhaustion is annoying for my 7 year old even though he is very sweet and understanding. I am thinking that if we tell him that there will be a new baby, it might make the slower pace for the next couple weeks a little more bearable for him. If anything were to happen, I think that he would handle it fine. I know that I cannot wait until the 2 trimester because I will be showing way before then and he will definitely notice and question it (when I was preggers with my youngest and he was 3.5, he looked at me at about 6 weeks and said, 'you look like you have a baby in there.') When are you planning on telling your kids?
