  • No, its really not that much more work. You've done it all before so you are a pro now!! And your oldest can be a helper now, maybe even the middle child if he/she is older.

  • Yeah Jude is 2 yrs old and Heaven is 3 but, they are already getting jelouse i think because now Heaven has to share a room and Jude doesnt, and she thinks that unfair ansd she doesnt want me to let the baby out of my tummy!

  • Your feelings are pretty much normal. I'm sure things look a bit scary at the moment. But you should be fine. Take a deep breath, hon. Its gonna be ok.

  • I don't think it will be too big of a change. I have two kids and hope within the next couple years to have a third. My parents have 8 children and they make it seem easy, they never had any complaints or remarks that would make me think they regret having 8 kids so I don't feel worried about having a bunch of kids myself.

  • No, not really. You're only scared because you're more mature and know what to expect. You didnt when you were 14. I was 17 when I had my DD, and was very scared to have #2 even though I was married with a great support system. It was easier this go-around.
