    seeing as all your advice on stepchildren was so good on the other thread :wink:

    My stepchildren are 33 (same as me :wink: ), 27 and 25 - unfortunately they act 3, 7 and 5 :roll: We have had nothing to do with the 33 yr old woman for years now, but we do with the 2 men.

    They are obviously aware that their father can't have any more children - but they are in the group of "we'll tell them after the fact what we're doing" - all my family know now - but they are far more understanding - and also don't hate me which is an advantage :wink:

    I have the feeling that when I finally get my bfp - they will (based on previous experience) throw a strop and tell everyone I probably got preg when I was having an affair and as their father is so besotted with me he's just being taken for a ride (besotted - yeah right - tell me that when I'm asking him to turn footie off :rotfl: )

    so should we tell them in advance - they won't find out by accident - they have nothing to do with my family - or should we wait on the basis that it may never happen :think:

    Well... they will probably say you had an affair anyways... regardless of what you tell them.. only it will probably start the rumours sooner.. Just tell them when you get pregnant...

    Your OH knows you are getting pregnant via a donor and that you aren't cheating, and it shouldn't really matter as long as he knows. :hug: :hug: :hug: :hug:
