I think I might be pregnant with baby #3

And baby #2 is only ten months old(going on 11) and I'm scared but excited too. Because if this ends up being a boy our family will be complete and I will close up shop. But did you ever have conflictions with how you felt about having another baby when another is still in diapers? I guess I worry I won't give her the attention a toddler needs as they are growing because I'll be taking care of the baby. I guess that is my only concern.

My husband and I just think I might be because I'm craving food that I only crave when I'm pregnant. It's too early to test, but the symptoms are there. I pee alot, I'm tired more frequently and according to my hubby, my boobs are fuller (he would know). So I'm just freaking out a little that I might be and wondering about how I will do with three kids.

  • My oldest daughter was 2.5 months old when my second daughter was conceived. She was 11 months old when little sister was born. After I had the baby I was changing older daughter's diaper and the nurse walked and was speechless. My husband was in Iraq when little sister was born.

  • I have two that are 18 months apart and two more that are 20 months apart. It's hard right at first, but then for me it gets much much easier! They are so close developmentally (in both "sets" the older one is a boy, then a girl) they play the same games, like the same toys, watch the same shows, eat the same things. It makes my life easier. I potty trained the older two at the same time, they learned to ride their bikes at the same time, they entertain each other.
    You learn to read books to the toddler while you are nursing a newborn, to play with the toddler while the newborn is sleeping, in the swing or bouncy seat.

  • If you're pregnant, you're pregnant, and by far, stranger things have happened than having babies close in age. Besides, by the time this baby would be born, you would be dealing with a 20 month old versus an 11 month old, and potty training would be right around the corner.

    I am an "irish twin" with my younger sister, and my sister is an "irish twin" with our younger brother, and I don't think we went without anything or any of the attention we would have had if we were spaced farther out, and we have very close relationships with each other.

    You can do it, and try not to stress just yet.
