Baby #2 Due in 3 Weeks- How to Talk to 3 Year Old About Being in the Hospital

Hello. I am due to have my second baby in about 3 weeks and have been trying to figure out a the best way to tell my 3 year old daughter that I will be in the hospital for a day or two giving birth.

Seeking Advice on My Soon-to-be New Addition

I am a SAHM of my beautiful daughter, who will be one at the end of February. My husband & I are expecting our second daughter at the end of May.
