I'm the opposite of most, I went from 1 to 3 and while it was hard, it for some reason, felt way easier for me than 3 to 4. I am not sure why. 4 was a surprise, not planned, and we felt complete with 3. I'm not sure if that has something to do with it. Don't get me wrong, I love him to pieces. But I had 3 under 21 months when he was born and it was and still is full on. Having said that, you will never get lonely with 4. I really want everyone to have their own bedrooms so we need a 5 bedroom house haha.

Number 4 was tough for me as he wasn't planned (neither was #3 lol). It was a big step for us as we had to get a bigger car and we needed a bigger house too!
One thing I did struggle with come #4 and especially#5 was breastfeeding. I'm so busy getting the other kids ready for school, making lunches, driving kids to and from school and other activities, housework, meals etc I just didn't have the time to sit and BF...I just felt rushed all the time and my supply suffered. However hard it was/is...we actually planned #5 and now we are very full and very busy and very broke!! lol
