Count me in as a mother of teenagers!

I have a 17-year-old son and a 15-year-old daughter. I am currently pregnant with twins, due in October.

I didn't tell my teenagers until I had the ultrasound that confirmed the pregnancy (and the twins!). They were actually hopeful and expecting the news. My husband and I had been trying to have a child and we suffered a miscarriage in 2014, so both kids knew that we were hoping for another chance. They have been absolute rocks of support during this pregnancy.

I have a 17 yo, 15 yo, 2 yo and just got a BFP for an April 2016 baby. When I was pregnant with now 2 year old, my kids were 15 and 13. My 13 yo burst into tears when I told him. I'm not sure if even he knew why. They were both supportive after that, though we had some behavioral issues from my 13 year old after my youngest son son was born. We got through it through. My 13 year old was very grossed out by me nursing, but I quickly set him straight and told him it offended me and hurt my feelings. We won't tell the kids about the newest pregnancy for awhile, but I'm sure they'll be excited as they adore their little brother.

Me too, I have a 18,15,10&4 year old newly pregnant and so nervous as I age with each pregnancy
We was satisfied and then I just realised my youngest 'baby' is going to school and I felt we needed a new addition to the family. I come to the conclusion I love having a baby in the house
Won't tell them till at least 12 weeks maybe longer
I'm pleased to see others have that same feeling as me. Everyone looks at me like I'm crazy when i tell them I have 4 and my family would have liked me to have stopped a while ago, as much as they adore all my children. I'm dreading them knowing about this one though either way we will manage! It's because my pregnancys are difficult praying this is more mobile and not as sickly
Hopefully my older ones will be happy for us yet I feel the 18 year old never wanted any siblings
Anyone scared this time round? I'm certain my body/ eggs are too old to make it full term for some reason ?

I have a 13 year old and a 15 year old, and am due in March. It makes me a little sad that they will be more like uncles to their little brother, but am very exited to add to our family!

Hey ladies,
I found out last Friday that I'm expecting again too #5 for me and I also have 2 teenagers. I've got 3 boys and 1 girl aged 16,13,9&7. I'm dreading the time when I have yo break the news too as I don't think u 2 eldest boys are gonna b too happy about it. I know my eldest won't for definite. My daughter will b super excited because she's ALWAYS asking for a baby. I'm 35 myself and this was a bit of a shock for us as we had given up officially trying about 2 years ago as we thought our youngest was getting too old and it just wasn't happening. Never used any contraception since mydaughter was born so we really thought we were done. I joined slimming world to lose some weight as OH brother is getting married next July (didn't need to lose a lot bit wanted to make sure I cud stick to to it. I'm supposed to be matron of honour but I can't see that happening now as I'm due the 20th July and wedding is 31 July. I always go over at least 10 days. So I've lots of worries.

How cool that this thread came back to life?? I'm 42 and have an almost 17 year old and a 2 year old, and am due to have number 3 in July. Dreading announcing this to my eldest, he is a typical teenage boy and he's made his feelings fairly clear about what an inconvenience Miss 2 is! we really did try to get pregnant though - we tried our last Ivf egg last month, so I can't even pretend it was an accident!
