I am in Ann Arbor, Mi and I am expecting my SO and I's first child together in January. I already have a 2 year old from a previous marriage and he has two girls(4 and 7) from a previous marriage, we are expecting a little boy together. So Anyone Else?

We're trying! My husband has 2 boys (ages 5 and almost 3) from a previous marriage and I have a 5 year old girl, also from a previous marriage (both our ex's were/are abusive, mostly verbal and emotional/ controlling) We're looking forward to sharing the experience together, in a happy healthy home and relationship. Congrats btw :)

Thank you. My ex was alright, we still talk and get along-his ex on the other hand was quite abusive to him and the children. This is our first child together, our kids have mixed feelings. My SO's 7 year old is excited, she is getting a little brother. His 4 year old daughter is a bit in between because she was the baby, and my 2 year old is SUPER excited about having a little brother.

It will be a great adventure for all of them, I'm sure the four year old will come around once she realizes the advantages of being a big sister (helping feed the baby, showing baby how to play, etc. all the fun stuff!)

Yea. We think so too. She already has a hard time with my 2 year old around, but she's coming around already.

My daughter is still adjusting to having two younger step brothers and sharing attention, but we hope the process of going through a pregnancy and the whole process of a more natural adjustment with a growing family will ease the transition for all three as part of a bigger blended family. We're very excited about sharing the experience with each other and the kids - I hope they'll be just as happy!

Maybe the gradual process of transition will ease your little one's hesitancy :)

That would be awesome - do you have a name picked? We already settled on our two favorites (though we're both thinking ours will be a he) Aiden David for a boy, Jordan Lee for a girl.
