I just found out a few seconds ago that I am pregnant with my second child. My first is almost 7 yrs old!! Any ideas on how to tell my husband??
Should I wait to tell my daughter or should we tell her right away? I'm freaking out!!!!

I just had to tell SOMEBODY!!!

Congratulations Manda!!
When I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd, it was such a suprise that I had to wait until my husband had a couple of beers before I could tell him laugh laugh laugh

Congraulations.....wonderful news.

Mine are 18 months apart and we had always said after the first that we wanted a second in a few years...my response to him was that a few years didnt wait laugh laugh
Good luck!!
As for telling your daughter...talk to your husband and see what he says...but let him get over the shock first laugh laugh

Manda,
Depends on if you were "trying" or not- I would just sit him down and say guess what!
As for telling your little one- I always waited till I showed- it's a long wait for them..My kids are 4 yrs and 7 yrs apart so I know what it's like- only one in diapers at a time - keeping you awake-- worked for me...

It took us exactly a year to conceive. I had just about given up hope!! I am really against fertility things so I was hoping that it would happen and be "meant to be" if that makes sense.

My daughter is going to be very excited and it will be hard not to tell her what is going on- she's pretty sharp and we're not too good at keeping secrets!!

My in-laws are going to freak out too! They are in their 60s and this will be their first biological grandchild.
OMG- I am soooo overwhelmed!! Thank you all so much for letting me spout out all my nonsense here to you!!

Good luck with telling hubby. If you were trying, then its not one of those "oh ****!" moments like ours was. laugh I've always gone out and bought a cute onesie in a neutral color and wrapped it up and left it on the bed for him to find. As for telling daughter...maybe you wanna wait until after those initial 12 weeks are over just to be safe. It would really suck to go through telling your daughter and then something happens and you have to explain that part to. Just a thought....my husbands mother went through that when he was younger.

So when is your due date??? Sometime in December I'm thinking.

What great news! I think your daughter will be excited. Most little girls that age love to help with a new baby. And granny and gramps might be excited too. Most of us really enjoy our grandkids--we get to spoil them rotten and send them home to mom and dad laugh thumbup

He called and I *HAD* to tell him! He's a teacher and he was getting ready to start teaching. I think I really shocked him because he said, I have to step out into the hall and breathe. I will have to call you back- I have kids coming in! LOL

He was calling to see if I had gone to the dr because I've been so tired lately. I just said, I think I have to go to a different dr than we thought!!! He said, WHYYYY?? I said, cause we're having a baby!!!

I called my best friend and told her right after my hubby. She swears she knew it already from the way I've been acting. perpl

I'm sure the grandparents will be thrilled.

Thanks for all the well-wishes! I'm still in shock!!

Thank you everyone!!!

Still kind of in shock here, but now everyone knows except MY parents! I will tell them later today probably. It is my husband's first time going through this (my daughter is from my first marriage)
and he was anxious to spread the news, so I let him! Everyone was floored and VERY excited- no one had any idea we had even discussed having another, so it was fun to hear their squeals of delight over the phone!

I have an appt for Tuesday and will keep you all up to date!

Thank you again for all the kind words and well wishes!

Love to all,
'Manda
