When and how so I tell my 13 year old son I am pregnant

Five years ago I carried a son to 8 months and he passed away due to a rare hereditary disorder. There were never any signs of distress until the day after my baby shower when he quit moving. The hardest thing I have ever done in my life was come home from the hospital and had to tell my son his little brother didn't make it. Now I am pregnant again, (6weeks), and am wondering what is a good way to tell my son and when? He is going to he so happy, but I am nervous of breaking his heart again because of what happened last time.

I would wait until you are early in your second trimester. After all, generally at 12 weeks, it is relatively safe from miscarriage, so wait until then.
