Boyfriend has 3 children already, I'm pregnant with his fourth.

does anyone else have children by a man who has children already?

Can someone please share their experience. My boyfriend is so experienced that I feel alone in my experience. I'm afraid to show him the cute baby stuff I'm reading about and just silly stuff like that.

Can relate my bf has 2 kids with his ex wife a boy and a girl but my only saving grace is his kids are teenagers so us having a baby now is all new to him again so we get to experience everything together since it's been awhile since he's had a small baby

Yep my bd has a 5 year old and I'm having his 2nd son and he acts like he knows more than me since this is my first lol

I almost feel like I'm making a wrong decision by going through with him.
This is not how I imagined my pregnancy to be.
I am only 5 weeks and already I feel like I need to back out for the sake of my sanity.

My fiance has 2 kids by 2 different girls. I hate the  situation.  On the  bright side,  he has experience with kids,  so he knew how to install our daughters carseat, build a crib, all the  little stuff that  I didn't know how to do. I wish he didn't have other kids, but nothing i can do

My husband has a five year old with his ex and he has his days where I feel like he's not exited but now that baby is almost here he ask me everyday how our little booger is doing asks if he's been kicking and how I'm feeling. His son is more then excited about being a big brother just give it time I think

My boyfriend has four kids with two different women I'm having his 5th and I feel alone cuz I'm constantly reading and tracking the size and when I tell him it's like he's not as excited as I am and it sometimes hurts my feelings he says he'll be happy when the baby's here :/

That's exactly how my husband was at the beginning I felt like he could care less he was always a party pooper eventually I told him how bad it made me feel and it got a little better just be patient. I've also heard some ladies on here say they are not as excited the second time around idk just give it time u can't give up that easy

I can't def relate. My boyfriend has a 4 year old some from a previous relationship. He was in a deep relationship with the child's,mother. At Times I feel alone in my pregnancy because it's my first but his second. And certain things I expected to happen with my first pregnancy doesn't and hasn't happened. I fear that he will play favorites Because he is in absolutely love with his son. I'm having his first daughters tho. But I understand how you feel. Its crazy
