Hmmm we have lots of similarities. I too have a 15 year old and 12 year old(in two weeks). I am also 19 weeks pregnant(2nd marriage, just got married in June 2011). However I do not have a 2 year old and I work full time. Is your due date the middle of July? Mine is the 15th!

Yes! The oldest one takes it a bit rough. He is a teenager and very into himself right now but I am hoping some of that is the age. He doesn't say too much about it. I am hoping when he sees the baby it will be more hands on and it will "grow on him" so to speak. My younger boy is much more excited and rubs my belly and talks to it so he has come around a lot. They were both pretty shocked at first and had no idea what to think. I know! The schedules right? It will be a challenge! I am trying to think of activities already and am going to make sure they each get some individual mom time even it kills me(and it might!) I only have my boys 50% of the time so it makes things a little more challenging at times and less challenging at others.

Thanks, Norma,

I am trying to stay positive. I do feel a bit discouraged, at imes, but I do feel that at least with an education, i will have more luck changing things.

Welcome back Heather.
Glad to hear you are back in Ohio, at least you have a roof over your head now.
Have you and your DH gone to Financial Peace University? It is a great way to learn to communicate about money.
One day at a time, look for the good things and you might want to read some comedy between classes, it really helps keep things in perspective.
