I am expecting my 3rd child, a boy, in Sept/Oct. My 7.5 year old daughter has Cerebral Palsy so she's not my main concern, my 6 year old daughter is more excited than anyone.....it's my fiance and his son I am worried about. My fiance pays his sons mom $114 a week for child support, when we get him on our scheduled weekend he will give dirty looks if I tell him to clean, stop doing something, whatever. I told my fiance and he shockingly said I was making it up because I hate it when hes around! For one, if I didn't want him around I wouldn't let him (they moved in with me). But I allow him over, gave him my 6 year old daughters room so now my girls share a room. My son that's coming soon doesn't even have a room right now....and I guess I am just stressing over our fight we had (about dirty looks and saying I am lying about it) and the fact that he acts like he doesn't wanna help financially with the baby like he does his other son. I am worried now that my baby wont have what he needs because my fiance seems more worried about his son he has now, and I am worried his son will try to hurt my baby out of jealousy. He already acts jealous if me and his dad are sitting "too close", he will wedge himself between us or whine to him to play with him while we are trying to eat supper....I don't mind it but I will if he does it to an innocent baby. And in my opinion a 7 year old should know better than to whine around, throw himself on the floor throwing tantrums, and crossing his arms making faces and whine noises. My 6 year old hasn't done that since she was 2! So I am at a loss of what to do....I've tried talking to my fiance, but he just turns it into a fight and gets all defensive. So I guess I am just mainly ranting here, and hoping someone knows what I am going through to help with advice or talk to. Thanks.

we've been together for almost 2 years (I knew him threw high school) and this is just becoming a more touchy subject now that a baby is coming in 3 months.
