Talk to your daughter about having a baby brother or sister, how she can be a helper and play with them. Include her in everything, even if she doesnt seem interested, let her hug and kiss your belly, look at it, poke it etc as it grows. It will take time but she will come around to it. You could get her, her own baby doll so she can do to it what you do to the bazby, i.e feed it, change its nappy and cuddle the baby. Once youhave the baby and she comes to meet them in the hospital or home, have a present from the baby just for her, it makes her feel special and included. Good luck, this will be a trying time but if you don't shut her out she will come around. Also look for some books, i know of one called My mum has a house in her tummy, or it's named somethinf similar. It might help her to understand what is going on.

She will get used to it. Make it sound fun having a baby brother or sister.
