  • Relationship was awesome until she turned 16 and didn't want to come over anymore, lol.

    When her brother was born she was excited!

    She was real good and helpful with him.

    I think it's only natural to have some jealousy.

    She was nine when my first was born.

  • My relationship is fine with my SS. Not quite the relationship I have with my own, but I love him.
    Its hard to say what you should expect after the baby without knowing how you and DH are with them now. My SS was fine with his little brother.
    You should introduce them now. While your pregnant. Keep them as involved as possible and let them meet their baby sibling in the hospital.

  • I really dont have a good relationship with my ss. He's 3 and pretty annoying honestly. I smile and be nice and do all that so my husband doesnt feel bad about having him over but my son who is 1 gets along really well with him. He didnt really know what to do at first because he was small and cried alot but now that they can play together they have a wonderful relationship. Introduce them as soon as you can so they can be a part of everything in his life including feeding and all the fun stuff. The sooner they build a relationship the easier it will be for everybody
