My 13 year old stepson is alternating between kinda interest in the subject of my being prengant and sulky/snappy at me. This normal? The first thing he asked when he found out was if he was gonna have to share his room (no) and if the baby was gonna go to his mom's with him on his weekends.
More fundamental than religion is our basic human spirituality. We have a basic human disposition towards love, kindness and affection, irrespective of whether we have a religious framework or not. When we nurture this most basic human resource – when we set about cultivating those basic inner values which we all appreciate in others, then we start to live spiritually. - Dalai Lama

I think that's probably pretty normal. My step sons aren't that excited about it (they are 10 & 12). I think they are concerned about how a new sibling is going to affect them.

Doni doesn't live with us and was much younger, only 6 at the time, she took it kinda hard. She didn't even tell her mom that I was expecting and she's a blabber mouth. By the time her brother got here and she noticed nothing really changed she started being better. It's going to take some time, but I'm sure he'll be OK in the end.

❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

I have a 12 yr old SD (almost 13) and we're on baby#2... she is for the most part very excited but I can tell there are moments where she realizes that another baby means less attention for her. She's made many comments about the lack of attention she already gets with us having 1 new baby.

I think its normal. Especially with boys, I don't think they get overly excited. Girls are more "motherly" if you know what I mean so a new baby is more exciting, IMO.
