    Yep i'm hearing ya LOL!

    We just found out last week that we were expecting our third and we weren't trying yet so a bit of a surprise. I really wanted to sway for a girl so was really stressed out that I wasn't gunna get the chance, then found out the first due date they thought was Christmas day so I was stressed out even more!
    My DH was over the moon and bouncing off the walls while I was having a private melt down LOL! I was always happy to be pregnant as we did want more but even if we had decided otherwise you can never have too many kids LOL!
    Hope your DH comes around asap so you can start having fun with the idea of a new bub!

    I'm still hoping for a girl but happy either way!

    Congratulations!

    I'm a real "Whoops" baby victim. My son was born in August '09. Five weeks later I was pregnant again. Talk about panic! But I have 7 wks to go and everything is calm and organised (sort of) and I'm feeling quite happy and excited. You'll feel the same as well. It just takes a little getting used to the idea.

    I personally didnt find a big difference between 2 and 3, it was an adjustment, but nothing I felt overwhelmed about handling. I found they usually slot in, your busy anyway with the other 2, and you usually have that extra seat in the car and the extra room in the house.

    I think the age gaps between your first 2 and your 3rd make a difference as well. I had 5.5yrs and 3.5years with mine, so dd1 was at school full time and had ds at home, which was manageable.

    You will be fine, just dont sweat the small stuff

    Phew! Thank you ladies!! I have just had it confirmed at the doctors and followed up with those lovely blood tests which I'd forgotten about. It still hasn't really sunk in yet though.

    I think my husband is a bit down at the moment but he says he thinks he'll feel better about it later. We decided to tell just my parents and his parents just until I have an ultrasound to work out when it's due, but Mother in Law decided to say congratulations to us at the dinner table with my husband's ENTIRE family there. I wanted to be a bit more excited about it before I started telling other people. If anyone asks about it at the moment I'm more likely to just start sobbing. Anyway, what can you do.

    Thanks for the reassurance, I really needed it

    My parents tried for my brother & sister for 2 years after having me, wanting ''one more''... They conceived through IVF as they were infertile (as they were with me) and ended up with twins

    1 1/2 years later, they find out they're miraculously expecting number 4 naturally!!!

    They managed just fine hon, just like you guys will!
