I am 8 months pregnant and the father of my baby (Jim) has a 8 year old son. We live together and share custody of his son with his Mom. When we found out that we were pregnant the Son's Mom (Lee) went nuts....now things have calmed down and she is much more accepting to our faces. Lee has not said much more to us, but has told several people that Ricky is resentful to having a new baby in his Dad's house and that it this isnt going to be his 'real' brother or sister. I am very old school and demand respect and the rules be followed all the time...not just whenever in our home. This has lead to Ricky telling his Mom, and Lee telling people in public that I am mean and Ricky no longer wants to see me. I am very upset by all of this. Jim has stepped in and talked to Ricky, we have had sit downs with the three of us and Ricky and I one on one. I'm not sure if I'm more hurt that he doesnt want this baby to be in his life or that he doesnt like me. I spend more time with Ricky doing activities than both of his parents and spend time doing things that appeal to him frequently. I have a gut feeling that most of our problems are arrising from Lee telling Ricky things..what should I do? Where do I even start with this mess??
