  • Good Luck, I am sure it will be just fine mommy.. I can barely handle 1 so the fact you had two and sex that could have lead to another one, you will be fine :) lol!!

  • I have a 10 yr old and a 2 1/2 yr old and I'm expecting #3 in February. I'm nervous about it too. My toddler is very much a momma's boy! I know everything will work out, so I try not to worry too much! lol

  • I have 3 boys, the first and second are 7 years apart, but the younger 2 are only 2 years apart. You will definitely have your hands full, but you'll be okay. Let me suggest that if you haven't join an organization like the M.O.M.'s Club. It saved my life when the kids were little. It's international, and they have play groups, mom's night out, park days, craft days, babysitting co-ops, pre-school co-ops. Whatever the mom's in that area need, they set up.

    My boys are grown, but I'm still friends with many of the women I met in the mom's club all those years ago.

    Whatever you do, congratulations on your new baby, and wishing you the best!

  • I felt the same way when I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd. Everything turned out just ok. Things just happen fall into place once the 3rd and etc.. is born. A friend of mine freaked out too when she found out she was pregnant with her 3rd. Her kids are ages 8, 18 months and 10 weeks. She is doing amazingly well. Good luck and congratulations! You can do it!

  • do you have a s/o? are you close with family? if you dont have a s/o or if he works and cant be around much, and you ARE close with family (or friends) express your concern to them and maybe there is someone who would be willing to help you out? maybe if you plan ahead now you won't feel as stressed. I mean, make a plan for that person to babysit when youre going to your dr appointments, and when yo go to the hospital and hopefully that pesron could stay with you for a few weeks after the baby is born.

    good luck!

  • I have two boys age 2 and 3. They are 16 months apart. I'm due in January to have my baby girl. What I have been doing lately is putting them on a schedule that way its a routine by the time she gets here. Also, my toddler has been bugging me to go to school since he could speak. So I've found one I can send him and his brother to for half a day, which will give me time to deal with the baby and home. Not to mention my SO is there to help amongst a bunch of family. If you wanna talk pm me. We seem to be in the same boat. Good luck and be happy. Children are blessing.

  • Opps, I forgot to mention all 3 of hers are boys. My kids are 3 years apart, 2 girls and a boy.

  • You will be just fine. When my third child was born I had a three y.o. and a 20 month old. It all worked out fine. I think it's harder going from one to two than two to three. My first two are 16 months apart.
