I just went through a second missed m/c in May, the first one was April 09. We hadn't told my kids with the first one yet, they were pretty young then, but with this last pregnancy after i saw the heartbeat around 8 1/2 weeks we told them. Then, I lost it 4 weeks later and we had to explain to them what had happened, I'm not sure they fully understood, they are 4 and 6 and didn't seem too upset about it. But, now I'm pregnant again and I'm wondering when I should tell them. I don't have an actual appt until Dec 20 (i'll be 11 weeks then), but we do get to have an u/s at 6 weeks. I'm also have hormone levels checked this week...so, I was thinking if all looked okay at the u/s we could tell them or do you think I should wait until Christmas to let them know? Have any of you had this experience with your own kids?
