I have a 16.5 month old son, I am also 3 months pregnant. I am just starting to show. We have talked to him about the new baby coming and he hears us talking about the baby. The past month and a half my when my son walks up to me he slaps my stomach and when I spank or pop him he gets even madder and hits my stomach harder. Every time I tell him "Stop that hurts mommy and the baby" he just stares at me narrow eyed. Then, when I pop , move and yell at him he "hugs" my belly and runs away just to come back and do it again. I have no idea what to do. I talked to a woman today and she said "He is jealous, if he proceeds to do it, tell his pediatrician and he can refer him to a therapist." He is only 16 months...
