I am not sure how far along you are, but I'd wait until at least after you get through to the second trimester. I lost a baby at 13 weeks, and I'd just told everyone I was pregnant. I then had to explain to our 3 other children (at the time they were 4, 6 and 9) that the my baby had died. That really wasn't much fun, and generated a lot of questions that, at the time, I was not coping with the answers to myself. I am not saying that will happen to you. But having had that experience myself, I'd never say anything until I was well past the first trimester. When I was pregnant with my youngest, I waited to tell the kids until I was about 16 weeks.

A cute little way to tell them, ask them to each hold out their hand and place a pea in hands and tell them this is how big ur baby brother or sister is in my tummy :]
