I am 27 weeks pregnant with my second child, and I keep feeling this insane resentment and anger toward my 22 month old step son and his mother. It's making me feel terrible, but I can't help it! Given: his mother has been extremely unkind to me and my family, but that hurt and anger shouldn't extend to the child, should it? Sometimes I have to leave the house because if I stay another minute I will start screaming. I hate it, but I don't know what to do about it!!Answer Question

No it shouldn't extend to the child. It's hard with hormones and the stress of pregnancy but if you are acting on your resentment towards your stepson, get away for awhile even if you just go to your room and lie down.

I'm 24 weeks and I feel the same way. But towards my sister in law and her daughter, I feel bad for the baby not her lol. I can't stand her even when I am not pregnant, but I won't hold, touch or talk even make eye contact with her baby. I know that's wrong especially since we all live together! But I can't help it, I mean it's not to were I want to hit or hurt the baby not at all I much rather do that to her annoying mom.
