I have no experience, so no advice, I'm sorry. I guess the only thing I can suggest is a counsellor for you and your daughter.
I did have a friend go through something similar and she said she was shocked at the birth how much the baby looked like his 'father', and as a result she struggled to breastfeed. She has a fabulous bond with him now though, and is doing great.
You are very brave and I wish you all the best

I can't come close to imagining how difficult that experience must have been for you. I'm so sorry that it happened.
I hope that you and DD have received some counselling, and if not, that you seriously consider this. It will be really important for your and your daughter's relationship with bub-to-be that you have some support to heal from your experience.

I am so sorry for what you have been through and for your daughter having to witness it. I couldn't even imagine how you feel
Have you spoke with a grief counsellor? Even ring one of the hotlines for unplanned pregnancy 1300737732
Or life line 131114 have all areas of expertise.
As for the age gap I think big or small you learn to adapt and hopefully you'll have a big helper in your daughter who'll adore her baby brother or sister.
