I am still co-sleeping half the night, Marlene sleeps from when she gose to bed till she wakes up in her crib, then she cames to me. So i see nothing rong what you are doing.
But like Kara said if you don't want it it is best to get him back to his bed. Maybe you can sleep on a matress beside his crib till he sleeps better, again and then slowly you move out of his room, that way there is no sleeping change for him.
EG the first few nights you spend the howl night in there, then the next few nights you only spend 1/2 the night in there then the next few nights you spend an hour or 2 in there and then just when he gose to sleep.
I would do 3 nights for each stage, cos most things i here it takes about 3 nights for them to get used to it.

This is terribly hard. I love having Liam sleep with me and we both seem to get more sleep this way but, at the same time when the baby comes I know everyone will get less sleep so it all sucks.
2 little miracles I was never supposed to have Liam 13 months old and a surprise in Nov

I don't think you are wrong for doing it...I coslept for a little over a month when Rylan was a newborn and started it back up late last year until I weaned him from it in May of this year.
You just need to be aware of what may start due to it, if you don't want him to continue sleeping with you after the baby I would try to get him back into his own room.
Also- don't let him dictate the "rules". If you want him to sleep in his room then he needs to, he can't choose to do it. At this point he knows mommy will come and rescue him so he will continue to do it until you put your foot down. Believe me I do understand the fatigue! But in order to not set any new routine I would let him know that he sleeps in his bed. (this is all if you really don't want him to continue sleeping with you)

At this point you need your rest. I would suggest that if you could try to wean him back to his own room. The last thing you want to do is turn this into the routine when your new LO is born.
