i am 20 weeks pregnant, with a little girl, I already have a little boy who is 19 months old. Me and my partner (of 4 years) briefly split up over Christmas but got back together, baby was unplanned, since getting back together we fall out a lot, each time we fall out he says he wants nothing to do with the baby until he's had a dna test, the baby is 100% his, but he doesn't believe that (when we fall out) when we have made up and he wants to talk baby stuff but I don't, I don't feel excited about having a new baby & I desperatly want to, I don't feel like I want to do any baby shopping, decide on a name & I feel terrible about it and it upsets me deeply, looking for any advice on how to make myself excited for my little girl.
thanks for reading and any advice.

From what I am reading this runs a lot deeper than just pregnancy...
It sounds like you are questioning your relationship, the number of times you argue & whether you should stay together. Only you can determine how it makes you feel & whether it is the lifestyle you want to follow. The one positive I can offer is that whether you stay or leave you will survive, it's a mother's instinct.
With your pregnancy, focus on the positives - you are going to be a Mummy, your boy is going to be a big brother, he can help Mummy with simple jobs such as getting a nappy/bottle/toy for his sister. Don't let Dad pull you down, you know he is being plain daft with his strops so leave him to it.
Lastly you can try chatting with other mums in the due in December thread, we're very friendly & can share the highs & lows of the journey with you. X
