Hi all, my name is Scott. I'm 37 from Brisbane and expecting bub March 29th 2016.
I've recently got back together with my partner (Mother of bub) after being in a long term relationship then off a 6 month breakup. I've got a 10 year old daughter, and 2 and a half year old son (different mothers), both of whom I have limited care of.
Since finding out we were expecting back in July, I've been 100% committed to being as supportive as possible throughout the pregnancy, however we've been through a rocky time up until late November and are now back together and rebuilding things.
As I've already got 2 children I have limited care of, I'm super determined to not go down that path with my partner and our child and really want to get my priorities right and be settled as a family. I guess I'm just a bit scared and fear failure or a similar scenario which I absolutely don't want as my partner is the true love of my life and I want our family and everything involved with a family lifestyle to work out. My partner also has kids of her own that I adore and treat like my own and don't want the excitement of a newborn to overshadow her kids or appear like there's any favouritism etc as that would never be the case.
Anyone who shares a similar situation or can relate to this, any advice or feedback would be much appreciated and I'd be most happy to listen and chat. Thanks
