I'm 16+4 and still haven't told our 5 yr old and 3.5 yr old we are having another baby!
A (5) has poked at my tummy and asked why I had a big tummy (I told her that was very rude to ask!) think we need to get a mmove on and tell them soon!

Best for you to do it rather than someone else! It's fab news! Share it!

Aww is there a reason you haven't? Be careful , someone will ask if they're excited about the baby!

I just wanted to wait as long as possible. February is a long way away for them and I know I'll be bombarded with questions. I also wanted to try and get the 20 week scan out the way but not sure we can wait another 4 weeks!

yes, I don't blame you. I remember when we told me son , he was 3.5 and wasn't really that interested! He just wanted to know if they baby would bring him a present! However your 5 year old might be more impatient! Are you finding out the sex?

No we won't find out the sex. I'm sure A will want to know how, why and how it's coming out!

Like others say, be careful someone doesn't say something to them! I can see why you want to wait until the 20 week scan though! When I was expecting my LO I told my 10 and 7 year old nieces and told them what month I was due. They were ok waiting, but they were older! It was trying to explain why I was late to them that was the hard part!!
My mum told me that I apparently told her she was pregnant long before she went for her scan when I was 4!

Ive told mine, if something happens then we'd deal with it as and when. Im with them too much not too!

I've told Jude too, feel so much better since I have, felt like I was lying to him. He's 4, he knows about the baby but not that fussed and at least we've Christmas as a good distraction before the baby comes!
