He will get you when you sleep. They always come when your asleep.
You need to be sensitive to his feelings OP but at the same time he is 8 years old and he should not be punching you in the stomach. Sit him down and calmly explain that you understand his feelings and that your love for him will not change when the baby comes, but then firmly explain that hitting is never ok and there will be consequences if he tries that again. 8 years old is old enough to know not to hit and to understand consequences. He may not like the idea of a sibling now but he will come around and in time he will love that sibling so much.
My sister was very upset when we found out we were getting a younger sister too. It'll get better when he realizes you won't abandon him for the new kid.
Wow. I really hope you're not letting him off lightly for trying to punch you in the stomach, that's scary.
