When should I tell my child I’m pregnant? Most experts recommend waiting until your pregnancy is well established — that is, sometime after your first trimester when the risk of miscarriage declines. If you’re having prenatal screening or testing, you may want to wait until you get the results from those tests.
Should you tell your family you’re pregnant before 12 weeks?

When should you tell him you are pregnant?

Do toddlers act up when mom is pregnant?
Your toddler’s behavior during pregnancy does not predict how he will behave after the baby is born. Some toddlers regress even more after the baby is born (temporarily!), but a whole lot of them love the role of big brother or big sister and take pride in being able to do things the baby can’t.
Can my 2 year old tell I’m pregnant?
You may be absolutely exhausted, but she may not even notice you’re pregnant. Your two-year-old may barely seem aware of your bump until your baby is almost due. And then only because there’s less room for her on your lap! Aim to tell her around the same time as you announce your pregnancy to friends and family.
