My kids have known that we have been trying to get pregnant for a long time. When we finally were able to announce our pregnancy to them, they were so excited. They had been asking for another brother or sister almost as long as we were battling against infertility to bring another child to the family — it was a super happy moment for all of us when we were able to share with them.
I am nearing the third trimester and I know that before I realize it, I will be holding a sweet baby in my arms and my three older children will become older siblings again. They are really excited and we have many conversations about my pregnancy and what life will be like with a newborn in the house. We are very open about the whole process and open to answering any questions they have about how the baby gets there and how it comes out and though we talk often, they tend to ask the same questions over and over.
