I am expecting my third child and I'm wondering how you ladies managed it with a newborn and your older kids running around. Sometimes I am at my wits end with these two and I wonder how a baby is going to fit in all this. Some days I want to keep it and others I don't think I can handle it and think about giving it up for adoption even though it would hurt to do that. Any advise would be appreciated, and I know someone will probably say it so yes I should have thought about it more before getting pregnant but its too late now.Answer Question

Hormones. Once your baby gets here, you will want him or her and you'll feel MUCH better. When I was pregnant with my 3rd, I was depressed and upset my entire pregnancy. I already had a daughter and I worried every single day that I wasn't going to bond with my new daughter. Once I had her, there was no doubt in my mind that I had bonded with her. Now I am pregnant with my 4th and feeling the same way even though I have been through this before, lol. Cut yourself some slack, you'll do great mama!

My oldest 2 were neither jealous or wanted to help too much. Your experience will be your own. I have a 5 year old, 3 year old, 1 year old.
