    Default Is it true, once you have 2, the 3rds a Breeze??

    Well DH and I have been TTC #3 for 4months, and we had finally put it on the back burner and after 2 and a but yrs I decided to go back to work.

    ANYWAYS, peed for the 5th time in 5hrs, had indigestion... And on a whim, thought wouldn't it be funny if....

    Bfp

    Soooo, after the initial shock, I was excited...then petrified...then excited...then thought I was mad..... Then excited hahaha

    I was quite happy with our two, ds 1yr and dd 2yr. When this bub is due dd will be 34m and ds will be 21m.... So it'll be 3 under 3!!
    DH is over the moon, he wants 6 kids, and loves it when I'm preggers.

    BUT, I am absolutely packing it when it comes to having 3 under 3! How on earth am I gonna go shopping, or do anything really?! I was all keen for a Bfp, but now it's happen, I'm a little overwhelmed!

    SO, my qs is, how did/do you cope with 3 littlies??

    Its not as hard as I thought it would be although I have bigger age gaps (5, 3 and 4 months)

    Its hectic at times especially when I have to do school runs etc and my DS3 has had some health issues and severe reflux too.

    Sometimes I do think "jeez it used to all be so easy!" But despite that, I still wouldnt change it.

    I've found going from 2 to 3 fairly easy. You've just got to be a little more organised . I've got a 3-1/2 year old, 18 month old and a four week old. My biggest problems lie with my 3 yo.

    It's not that hard, you adapt pretty easy and I think close gaps are great!

    Its easier than expected, although I have a dd,8yrs, ds1 22mths, and ds2 7 mths. The worst really is dinner/bath time. Being organised makes things a lot easier too. Good luck!

    These will be my age gaps exactly! I'm really looking forward to having our family complete.

    Not that I know yet but as pp mentioned I think being organised is the key. Ill also be doing a lot of baby wearing to keep up with the others I think.
    Congratulations!

    I found going from two to three pretty easy. Mine were 23 months and three months shy of four when she was born. To go shopping I would go to Coles where they have the trolleys with the lay down bit for the baby and the toddler sits next to that so DS and DD2 were always put in there and then if DD1 was being a real terror she could sit/stand in the actual trolley bit. At any other shop I would get a baby trolley for DD2 and DS would go in the trolley part and DD1 would have to walk. I had a pram with a toddler seat for other outings so that took care of DD2 and DS and again DD1 walked. You could have a skateboard attachment if you needed it to.
