I've recently discovered that I'm pregnant with our third baby, our other two will be two and almost four when this one arrives. This was completely unplanned as we had decided on two kids, so now I feel totally out of control :s People keep asking if we're happy about it and of course, you can't really be UNhappy about a new baby but honestly I am terrified!
If you have/have had three under 4, how did you cope?
How did you find time to breastfeed a newborn while having to chase two toddlers and do ANY housework at the same time?
What are your sleeping arrangemnt? Did you put the two older children in a bedroom together?
Did you need to buy a new car or just slimmer car seats? (we have a saab 900s, pretty small car :S)
That's enough questions for now, I hope there are some answers out there for me, I'm panicking a bit!
Thanks in advance.
Wow, do I know how you feel!
My DS will be 7 next month and DD will be 5 the month after Babybump no. 3 comes along-and may add DD will start Kindy next year!!
Bub is Due early October!
And he/she was a massive OPPSY DOOPSY! AND I can gaurantee alcohol was involved! So a massive shock!
DH & I Did not take it very well at all and almost saw us go our seperate ways.
I am not almost 15 wks prg and finally accepting congratulations off people-when I first told close friends and family I demanded that NO ONE get excited....but Im ok now. (Not looking forward to the getting fat part)
I think I will be ok with this bub. Im only taking 3 mths MAT leave than returning 2 days a week ( for sanity reasons) But will continue to breast feed.
We also had gotton rid of ALL our baby stuff - and as I had my first baby )DS) when I was 18 I didnt get much of a say in ANYTHING as my MIL took over completely-Im having fun picking out my cot, pram, baby toys etc smile
We are also on the market for a new car! My DS although only 7 does not use a car seat anymore as he is way too big for them! His very tall and when he sits in them his head almost touches the roof of the car! So figured it's much safer not having one. His taller than most the kids in yr 6 (his in yr 1) at his school - just to give you an idea!
You have done this twice already darling - YOU can do this again!
You have our full support here on huggies - day and night smile
You can do this! Enjoy it now because they honestly do not stay little for long!
My mother also promised me I will never get busier than 3! lol so take comfort from that.
OOO and when is your EDD!!!!!?
