I think we will plan on telling them this weekend. My DH is so excited I don't think we can hold out much longer. Really don't know how anyone could wait 12 weeks! Our girls are 7&14

I won't be telling my DD until I'm atleast 15 weeks. Just to make sure everything is okay and if I told her now she would ask me every day until I have the baby, when the baby will be here. LOL She's 3, btw.

We told DS last time as soon as the doctor confirmed it. He was freshly 3 and I wanted to give him as much time to get used to the idea as possible. I had no fear of the worse.
We haven't told him this time around. He's a smart little bugger and I'm sure he's already figured out the code DH and I have been using to discuss baby around the kids.
I'm sure we'll tell all the kids around the same time I finally tell my family.

We told our dd's pretty much immediately. The 3yr old could care less and the 4 yr old is amazed by it. She likes to look at books and see what the baby looks like and how it grows and compares it to herself.... Soo cute.

We told our 2 last night! They were both ecstatic!! They have been bugging us for a while now to have a baby, lol. My DD is 6 and she is over the moon excited to be a big sister and my DS is 9 and he is hoping for a brother! lol No way could we keep it from them! :) I do wish I had gotten their reactions on camera though! Sooo sweet!

We haven't gone so far as to tell our DD that we are having a baby on or around November 10, so expect its arrival.

We will tell the kids when we tell the rest of the family. My DD is 3 and she can't keep secrets so we can't tell until we are ready to tell everyone.

We are going to wait as long as possible before telling the kids.
