Hi ... I have not long found out that I am pregnant which will be my 3rd pregnancy but as I have 2 of my own children I also adopted my niece and nephew making the baby be my 5th child I am so frightened as I know how hard it is going to be with 5 as my niece is having a difficult time with her behaviour no surprise as to what she went through but I adopted them 5 years ago I really thought she would settle down and I am now blaming my parenting which is making me not enjoy my pregnancy or my other children because I think I'm a crap mother what do I do I'm so stressed and down thanks
You need professional support and advice, OP
You are not a crap mother - your niece has obviously been through a trauma, and this will manifest in her behaviour.
You have done an amazing thing, but will require a huge amount of support.
Contact your GP or health visitor, If you're no longer in touch with a social worker.
Congratulations on your pregnancy
