im pregnant with baby number 3(11 weeks) and i don't feel any connection with this child at all..i get very depressed thinking about it..not sure if its because i had a miscarrige a few months before and im affraid to get connected cause of the fear it will happen again or if its the thought that my 3 year old will be a middle child and i was a middle child and i felt left out alot and i still do..what are some ways to over come this...

I do know what you are going thru, I have been there myself. I have 3 kids, and when I was pregnant with my last one, I felt the same way. I, too, had a miscarriage before I got pregnant with my youngest, and I didn't want to get my hopes up. But as you get farther along, those feelings will deminish, and you will get excited about a new baby. As for the soon-to-be middle child, just give them all the love that you do now, and set aside time for them after baby comes. I had to do that with my oldest when I had my 2nd, and then again when I had my 3rd. I hope that this helps just a little bit! And congrats!!
