Hi to all,
We are a blended family, he has two beautiful boys whom I absolutely adore, they are ages 2 and 10 and I am currently 3 months pregnant with my first. We both come from broken homes but my mom remarried a man with 4 kids whereas I am her only so our 10 year old, what he's going through I went through it when I was his age. I have alot of concerns and such, so we are just taking it one day at a time.

thanks me too. he hates is younger brother so much that it's really got me worried. But when they are with their mother he is left in charge of him more often than not and when they are with us it's the complete opposite, he's the kid he needs to be when we have them and I'm the mommy so I'm just hoping it goes well and he doesn't like tell me he hates the idea and hates me or something.

Hi bowlingbabe! I have two step-kids (11 and 13) and one of my own (about to turn 1!). Totally relate to nervousness about telling the kids about your pregnancy, but in my case it was unfounded. They love their little sister and have matured a lot since she was born. If they do have a bad reaction to the news, recognize that it's normal and will pass.

Watch out for his ex flipping when she finds out, especially if there is still tension there. Constant reminders about still loving them the same, how great they'll be as big brothers, etc, might help.

I bet your experiences during childhood will make you a great asset to the board.

Congrats on your baby!

Thanks! So far the ex has been great, she and I talk once or twice a week just on our own, says that Im the best person he's ever been with (she has really been his only serious relationship, they were off and on for about 8 years and he kinda dated around) but she is being really great with everything so far, says she is very excited for us with the baby. He told Corbin this morning (they are out of town this weekend and because he's such a daddy's boy bri insisted on telling him so he did) and bri said his face absolutely lit up. Im leaving shorty to go to them and he asked for me to mention the baby to him and see how he reacts so Im going to but so far so good, feels like a huge weight has been lifted. Thank you for the advice.
