how much do you think our lives will change?

with baby number 4 coming soon. We already have a 10, 6 and 4 yo. I'm thinking there wont be a huge difference bringing home baby number 4. My other friends and family members seem to think there will be HUGE adjustments and it will take a while to get use to the new baby coming. I disagree with them, I believe this will be an easy transition and it wont be HUGE adjustments... what do you think?

  • 10 and 6 have been doing this whole younger sibling thing for a while now. You will have 6 pairs of extra hands to love, help change, and feed new brother or sister. What an excititng time for your family. Bringinng home a new baby is always an sdjustment, but it will be just fine

  • Maybe not for you and DH but for the kids --- it's always a huge adjustment.

  • since you're not going from having 1 kid for 4 years to having 2, I think it should be a pretty easy transition for you.
    Your only problem might be your youngest having issues with not being the baby anymore, but honestly you've dealt with that before with the others

  • DarkFaery131~ funny you mention my 4 yo... when I 1st told him I was going to have a baby, he said I AM the baby! He seems to be ok with it now he has had a while to get use to the thought of having a baby brother...

  • I think the transition for you and your husband will probably not be that huge. It is not like you have not done it before.
    However, it will probably still be a big transition for your other little ones.
