Hi ladies. I'm 22 weeks pregnant with baby number 3. I have a 3 year old DS1 and DS2 was stillborn at 22 weeks in March.
I still feel like I'm preparing for the death of another one of my children, not a birth. They have no idea what was wrong with ds2 so I have no idea how likely I am to lose this baby.
My question is - is it a bad idea to just not tell DS1 he might be getting a sister? Just hopefully present him with a sibling one day?
He already knows he had a brother who died. The one thing I'm thankful for is that I never told him I was pregnant, so although he knows about DS2 now, he never had the disappointment of realising he wasn't coming home.
I feel like it's better not to tell him about this pregnancy, than to tell him and risk having to tell him another one of his siblings has died.
What do you think?
