Im now about 9 weeks along. We are so happy to be pregnant again despite how sick I am this time around. But I'd be lying if I said I weren't feeling a bit apprehensive. I'm so nervous to tell our 5 year old son that we're expecting a new baby. I honestly don't know how he'll react. We've discussed the idea of having a new brother or sister with him prepregnancy and he wasn't the biggest fan of the idea. He struggles with change and a bit of anxiety. Since beginning the topic he's gone back and forth with positive and negative thoughts on the subject.
Id like to present this to him in the most positive and upbeat way.
Has anyone dealt with a situation where the new big sibling wasn't thrilled with the news? How did you handle this throughout pregnancy and how did you prepare them for baby's arrival?
