Has anyone done this and survived? My oldest will be two months shy of 3 years old when my THIRD baby is born.
So is it as crazy as I am anticipating? Any advice??

Mine were pretty close in age to that. I have 3. My first two are 17 months apart and then child 2 & 3 are 2 years and 1 month apart.
When I had my youngest, my oldest was almost 3 1/2. It was nice since they 2 older ones would play together and stuff when I would feed or take care of the baby.
Also, since the baby will be sleeping a lot you can still attend to the older ones when needed. 3 is easier then 2 since they have someone to occupy them.

LindaClement...my response to I know a woman who had a 3yo and 18mo twins when her triplets were born. That was all fun and games until her husband left her... I was like, OUCH....but then again, what a jerk he was. After all, he helped with getting her pregnant. LOL WOW!

I did it. When my third was born my older kids were 28 months and 13 months. All 3 were in diapers until the oldest was past 3. It was crazy but worth it. They are 10, 9 and 8 now and I also have a 5yo and a 9 month old.
When they were babies: 2 1/2, 7 weeks and 15 months.
And now: 8 1/2, 9 1/2, 9 months, 5 (it was her birthday) and almost 11
