Re: Any advice?

I think a lot will hinge on your attitude in bringing it up. You can either make it a big deal, "Honey, sit down, there's something we need to tell you." and then asking lots of questions about what he thinks and feels, and "watching" him for reactions for the next days. Or you can somehow get it to come up naturally and just nonchalantly offer the information like it's not a big deal, (Well, no, you weren't in my tummy, but I am your Mom. I loved Daddy and you and we wanted to be a family.) and of course answer whatever questions he asks. It really doesn't change anything - you are still his mom, he is still your son, you love him, you take care of him the same as always. He just wasn't in your stomach. That's all.
