Many times my oldest guessed I was pregnant. We tried to wait until I was at least showing but if our oldest caught on sooner we'd tell the other children too. Usually by telling them, "Mommy is having another baby." Our children were always excited and accepted the next child with joy.


I told my daughter that I was having a baby before my son was born. I let her know that it was a positive thing but she really didn't understand since she was little then. But when we would go shopping for him I would let her pick things out for him so she would feel like she was apart of it.
