Did your children's behavior change when you got pregnant?

I am the mom of a happy three year old girl. I got pregnant around the time she turned three years old. Her behavior also changed. I call them the terrible threes, but my mom says she acts differently because I am pregnant.
She knows how to push my husband's and my botton's. One minute she is the happiest girl in town, but the next she is angry. She doesn't like her shoes, her clothes, she wants to eat something else, she cries, etc. I am as patient as I can, but my husband is not.
So I was wondering if this has happened to you. Is my mom right, or are we going through the terrible three's?

  • my girl did that but she just was entering into her 3s anyways which in my opinion is worse than what everyone calls the terrible twos. now though that she's 4 and i'm pregnant she seems to be getting way more clingy than i would like since she bugs me for little things about every 10 minutes.

  • Yes, I am having another girl. I am due in February. I guess I just have to be patient with her.

  • when i got pregnant with my son earlier this year my 7yr old (at the time 6yr old) girl did act different. She was a little jelous at first an was really a problem when i find out i was having a boy instead a girl.she really cried. even the baby was born she even told the she wish the baby wasnt even bor because "everyone don't pay me no attention any more" after that i made it a point to do more things with her and then she came round and started to hepl out with the baby. When everyone stop coming to visit she started being normal. My son is now 4 months old and she acts like she is the mom with the baby. i think it was just that everyone gave me and the baby most of the attention but i had to make sure i gave her special time she felt better about the new baby situation. my mom gave hera book called Im A Big Sister and she read it alot of times and i read to her and it helped too. give alot of quality time to the others

  • I know my son would if I got pregnant. People ask him all the time would he like a sibling and has always told them NO. He always tells us he likes our life. He is almost 5 years old.
