We announced our 3rd pregnancy to our older kids around 15 weeks and to the rest of the world shortly after. We wanted the kids to know first! We didn’t want to tell them too early just in case...

That's what I'm scared of. I have never had a mc but my sis in law has and the kids don't understand why their sibling is not here.

That why i think im waiting, I want to at least be in the 3rd trimester. I want to tell him before we find out the gender so he can be part of it.

We've done it right away with all of ours. The second time, we tried to wait but we were overheard by some little people in DH family and they ratted us out. The last time, I wanted to wait but my uncle had passed and I couldn't keep it a secret. I feel like the news brought a lot of peace and hope for the family then. He ended up with my uncle's name as his middle

With my first, they told me at 13 weeks. 
I didn’t find out until the 20 week ultrasound with my second.

BD and I told DD1 right away.  Only because she was so young and we wanted her to have time to learn what getting a sister meant lol.
