My main gotta know is HOW DO YOU DO IT?!?!
I have a lil boy that is 3, a girl that is 8 months and my third is due early July. But with how my due dates tend to go, I'll be lucky if she is 1 before her sister is born. And I'm TERRIFIED! I already get so stressed out with just the two. I'm trying desperately to potty train my son before the baby gets here. But he refuses to poop in the potty! That gets me going. And my daughter is teething, so alot of that crying, and not much to do to help stuff going on, which makes me feel horrible. And I know its not their fault. With the pregnancy and everything else going on I'm just way over stressed and I blow up sometimes. Then I find myself crying cuz I just don't see how I'm going to do it with another one. Any wise words how to prepare for this?

it will be ok. I was just like you I had all 3 right in a row. Really when you hit 3 its not so bad ( its kinda like whats one more)! I worried like you to ( I mean really bad I even called my doc and talked to him about abortion which I could never do) and was under alot of stress and a single mom at that but everything went great! Just breath hon and try to relax. You cant control the feature so take everything one day at a time. Good luck Ill be praying for ya

all i can say is not to schedule anything you don't have to until that new baby is a year old and can walk well. i raised 3 all by myself without any sitters until my oldest was 12 and it was hard. but if you can concentrate on the future you will be so much better off. this is all temporary and children do grow up and move on. my suggestion is to just keep life very simple and enjoy your home time, and spend most of your time at home. keep the kids off of tv during the day, off of sugar and caffeine and keep them busy busy busy. let them do whatever you do during the day and enjoy it. if you have help that is great but if you don't, just accept that fact that this is your life right now and it will be all about kids for quite awhile. getting up early, staying on schedule and go to bed early without others interfering in your day helps so much. GL!!
