Just wondering. I was nearly 4 when my brother arrived and nearly six for younger sister. I don't remember being aware that anything was going to happen at all. Elder sister and I were packed off to an aunt for a few days when DB arrived - presumably for the birth and aftermath - and came home to find a new baby boy.
We were at home for my sister - I just remember my father coming into our bedroom first thing and saying we had a new baby sister. (Which was an exciting thing to write about in your news at school!).
By contrast, Gdcs of 3 and 4 have been told from the first that a new baby sister is due shortly after Christmas. They were shown all the scan pictures, inc. the very first, and will often kiss the 'bump' or sing a song to it.
Not sure how much Gds really understands, but Gdd (4) is very excited - last Christmas she asked 'Farmer' Christmas for 'a real baby, boy or girl'. So he'll be delivering (fingers Xed) . a bit late.
