Telling Our Daughter (for inquiring minds)

A few folks have asked if we've told our daughter yet. We haven't. I'm just too paranoid. I was originally hoping to hold out for as long as possible, but my husband and I agreed that we'll tell her sometime after our next appointment (assuming everything is ok). Right now we're thinking we'll try to hold out until Christmas. Not specifically on Christmas -- I don't want her thinking this is some kind of gift for her -- but sometime during our holiday break. We do plan to pull out the video camera to try and capture her reaction. Knowing my daughter, she'll probably just say "I told you so", which she has, many times!

Us, we will probably not tell our 2 year old until it's real close, mostly because she doesn't really understand what's going on right now. I'm greatful for that time, in a way. But also fearful she'll just never understand and then one day there will be a baby in the house who won't leave.

Sorry to be one of the nosy ones :) I agree completely and can't imagine being one of those people that told the sibling right away, or brought them to the first u/s
