Hello, i'm a newly married 24 year old that is 5 months pregnant with my first :) My husband also has a child that is almost 1 year of age. I have been in his son's life from the time he was born and love him very much, but now that I am pregnant i am beginning to feel jealousy and anxiety about the situation because I am very focused on my pregnancy and our child and i feel bad for saying this but i don't want any distractions and a 1 year old is obviously time consuming. We have the child half the time but I am wondering how do I balance my pregnancy and new baby with my step son? I have these crazy worries about my husband loving his son more than our child and things of that nature and it is causing some bickering between us because of my jealousy. I had never felt this way toward his son until i became pregnant and i am wondering if it will ever go away? It sounds terrible but i find myself wishing he never had a child from a previous relationship and I feel horrible for thinking this.
