Hey everyone so I have 2 boys 10yrs n 8yrs n an angel baby. My last pregnancy was infact the stillbirth where I came up to my 34th wk. My boys suffered alot when we lost our baby n have been asking for another brother, inwhich I am pragnant again after almost 3yrs. My question is how do I tell them about the new baby. I know that there is a possibility of another loss which I will have to explain, I just dnt know how...pls help??

I'd probably wait til the second trimester and then tell them they're gonna be brothers again. Let them enjoy it and make it as positive as you can. I'm sorry about your baby and praying for this one to be extra healthy and arrive safely :)

Thank u. Yes I've thought of that which is the reason why I've kept it to myself. I just don't want them super excited to then go through it all again.
