(twins) were like that but they saved it all for me not their brother. He can do no wrong and if I even look like discipling him they are straight there tell me that he is only two ect ect. So I am sure u will be surprised on how your son will just adore the new baby but still think you are the worst. Just let him be really involved no matter how much it frustrates you. I feel its like creating a bond with dad. The more they do with the bub the more they bond. I let my boys dress him, nurse him after a feed ect right from birth. My next bub, another boy, is due on the 10/8 and my boys have been wonderful helping do the nursery, carry the groceries and this has made them feel involved and important and not jealous of another child (hopefully).
I am not quite sure what bubs is at the moment, but then again i only have 2 weeks now until my scan! The doctor is going to do it at the end of my 18th week just to check everything is alright. We have had so much trouble in this 16.5 weeks. I have had bleeding on and off, dizzy spells, bad morning sickness and headaches. I hope that you get to by pass all of these horrid things and have a great first and second trimester.
I have done some of the gender tests on the internet by the chinese. They are great and so much fun. One had me at a 50% chance of either as it couldnt decide and another said it is a girl. I guess i will have to wait and see.
Goodluck with your son. I am sure that he will love his new little sibling when it is here. My mum had a 10 year gap between my youngest sister and my middle brother. We all get along great - my and the middle brother have a 15 year age gap. I think it gives the younger one someone to look up to and the elder one someone to impress.
I found out i was pregnant with my second bub and my son was 10yrs old, By the time bub came he was 11yrs old.
I know how you feel, I was in shock for months. My son grew to love the idea of becoming a big brother, he too was shocked.
I have since had another bub, my son was 13yrs when she was born. They are great to have around, it nice to have an adult conversation when you have a new bub. It helped me to stay sain!!!
Good luck, love to hear from you soon.
