Since this is my 8th pregnancy and we have experienced loss too many times we have both decided we will not speak of this pregnancy to anyone until maybe 20+ weeks. So last night we are at the dinner table and DS sitting next to me says "mommy you're feeding the baby in your tummy?" completely shocked I asked "where he heard that from or who told him mommy had a baby?" he replied " no one, I put my head on your belly and it told me." I was speechless, shocked, and confused. How could my 6 yr old son know something like that?

A kid instinct? Maybe he overheard you and DH talking about it? Maybe just a coincidence? It's pretty cool though

I luurrrrrve to lurk!
DH and rarely talk about it. To be honest I try to forget I am even pregnant. I think chances of him over hearing us are slim but still possible kids are smart, I wouldn't put it past him for a second. I have no clue how he knew, just amazed about the whole conversation.
Awww, out of the mouth of babes!
Personally, I believe little ones have a way of communicating with one another that we as adults have no concept of! Even if it is just a 6th sense type thing.. Regardless if it was by feeling, being told or overhearing you and DH, how absolutely precious! Here's to a HH9M!!
That's amazing, and I have a similar story! I had a very early miscarriage, I hadn't even told my DH because the next day was his birthday so I was going to wrap up the stick as a gift for him. I was sitting on the floor crying. My daughter was about three at the time and she came over & gave me a big hug & said quietly, "It's OK, Mama, you'll have another baby." There was absolutely no way she should have known, I hadn't said anything to a soul, she hadn't seen me buying a pregnancy test or taking it, nothing, no way, no how. But she knew.
Wishing you a healthy & peaceful rest of your pregnancy!

Livestock generates 65% of all human-related nitrous oxide, which is 296 times more warming to the environment than carbon dioxide; 37% of all human-related methane, which 23 times as warming as CO2; and 64 percent of ammonia, which contributes significantly to acid rain.

Oh my gosh that is too cute. I defiantly feel they know some how. I thank you for the healthy wishes, although I am having a m/c. Maybe our 9th time our will be better.
Some people are just sensitive to that stuff. When I was pregnant the 1st time, we were going to wait to tell until 12 wks, but we went to synagogue when I was five wks along (pregnancy ended at 6wks), and ALL the men in the synagogue asked me if I was pregnant.
That said, if your son has been aware of some of your other pregnancies, he may have noticed how your behavior changes.
I hope this one works out for you!
