When to tell the kids?

DH and I are struggling with when to tell our kids that a baby is coming. I say we should wait as long as possible so it's not such a long wait for them, but DH says I need to tell them soon so they understand why I don't feel good.

Our DD (4) keeps asking if I'm still sick because of how nauseous I am. I had the flu a few weeks ago and I think they all think I'm still sick from that.

I can't cook, I barely eat actual meals, and I'm tired/cranky most of the time. I know they are all old enough to know that something's not right, but I'm just not sure that telling them now is a good idea.

What would you do?
