Telling my 7 year old daughter I'm pregnant, after losing a newborn baby last time....

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

HI, I joined this group to see if anyone might be able to give me some advice on how i tell my 7 year old daughter i am having another baby, after two years ago losing our newborn baby.... My daughter was completely over the moon when i told her she was having a brother or sister, so when we had to sit her down and explain to her that her sister had gone to heaven minutes after she was born, was a tragic and horrible thing to have to do..... She still, 2 years later will burst into tears and say how much she just wants her sister back.... (as do i).... i am now 20 weeks pregnant, and my daughter is currently away visiting her father, and have decided when she gets home i need to sit down with her and tell her the news (as its getting a little hard to hide!) I just wonder if there is a easy way to approach the situation, as i know she will be as scared as me that we may lose another baby, but i want her to be able to be happy, but also understand that we need to just wait and see how everything goes... I absolutely HATE being in this position, and just wondered if anyone else has been in this position before, and if they could share how they managed the situation with me??? PLEASE!!??? I, of course am as scared as hell about everything, but i am just taking a day at a time, and hoping and preying that all will be ok this time.... Any advice would be so very greatly appreciated..... :0)
