Moms to 3 or more: hardest going from 0-1, 1-2, 2-3 or +?

I give you ladies so much credit.  I have two and while sometimes I entertain the thought of having a third, I think I'd be in over my head.  Is it as hard as I think?  Which transition was the hardest for you?

IDK.. in some ways 1 to 2 was hardest because it was a HUUUGE adjustment. 2 to 3 you knew what to expect BUT then your attention is divided into thirds. And there is the lovely middle child.. lmao .. that child always wants more attention than their third. Oh wait the baby does too. And the poor older child is 'neglected' haha. Yeah.. it's a mess.. it's chaotic.. and I wouldn't change it for the world.

hardest was from 2-3 but for me I was going from my gilrs being independant to having a baby totally dependant on me. So basicly I was starting over 5 years age difference between my Emily and my Daniel.

 I'd have to say 2-4.  I kind of inherited the last 2, they're my boyfriend's kids.  It's a lot of fun, but it's soooo stressful in a house with 4 boys!!

going from 1-2 is the toughest, for me anyways, i was worried i wouldnt be able to love another as much as my first, worried about time/bonding/one on one.... everything!

but now i am expecting #6 and hell the biggest worry i have is making sure grandma doesnt go off the deep end while i am in the hospital! lol

 Going from 1 to 2 kids is much bigger difference and harder than going from 2 to 3 or more. I have 3.

How do you even go out of the house with three kids?  The logistics alone makes me dizzy.  Isn't someone always running off?
