Our children are 19yrs old (dsd), 12yrs old (dss), 17 months old (ours), and one on the way.

Today my s/o advised the 19 yr old about the impending baby and she is upset. With our dd she basicly didn't talk to us for approx 8 months. I'm not sure how long she will be upset this time.

She's a little old to be upset over a new baby, isn't she? There's probably alot more to her attitude (like daddy having a baby with someone other than her mom), but c'mon... she's 19. Time to start acting like it.

i agree that is a bit old to have issues with having a new baby brother or sister. do you two get along ok? It's probably leftover animosity over her dad remarrying? Her mother might be putting not so nice thoughts in her head about it, possibly? Either way, her father needs to sit her down and explain to her that this new baby WILL be her baby brother/sister regardless of who the mother is and that relationship lasts for a lifetime. I hope things get better and I'm sure shewill get over it soon. there is really nothing she can do about it and she is going to have to accept that sooner or later.

Thankyou, I thought I was the only one that thought 19 was too old to be upset about it. (by the way her parents have been separated since she was 5 years old, our 12yrs old has another mother from his girlfriend inbetween his first wife and me.

ITA that she is too old to be upset about a baby. Hopefully she comes around though.

There are a lot of very mature 19 year old out there....to bad she is not being one of them!
Does she live near you? will being involved in the pregnancy help? maybe she is feeling left out? Congrats to you on a new baby to be!
