Announcing the pregnancy... need help with the details.


So, our five year old has been asking for a brother/sister for two years. We've just not been ready yet.

But its finally here, and he is going to be so excited

Im 14 weeks and nobody knows yet! We are having the family over in 3 weeks to celebrate 5 year olds birthday and thought of exposing it then.

We wanted to maybe give him a present... or do something that would make him think 'this is for babies' or "I need a brother/sister to use this"

But Im not sure what to buy or do
Do any of you have any suggestions on what to provide as a present (or it can be a new idea alltogether, doesnt have to be a present!)

Wow, that is such a neat idea! I booked a private scan for next week just to see baby/find out gender. Ill be 15 weeks during the scan. You're giving me more to think about now, like I can incorporate the baby's sex.

My son is older, but I always do big events for big news.
My son has severe neurological issues, had brain surgery amongst others, and im always telling him how he is a super hero. His room is decorated in comic book strips and super heroes.
I wrote him a letter telling him that he has been the greatest adventure of my life and he is my super hero. Then he opened a gift which was an eyemask. He them had to unscramble a puzzle that read EVERY SUPERHERO NEEDS A SIDEKICK. and lastly I unzipped my hoodie to show him my tank top that had belly eyemask and COMING SEPT 2018 on the belly.

My.mom has always done puzzles to tell us about big news... Or you could get him a big and baby sized version of something he loves...

We had my son WEAR a big brother tee when we announced we were pregnant with my daughter. We went to a family BBQ on the 4th of July and thatís when he wore it.

The first time we just told people slowly and this time we just sent out a mass text with an ultrasound pic.
