We just found out we are having a 3rd child. I don't know whether to laugh or cry, in fact I am so scared!!
i have a 3.5 yr old and 1.5 yr old - who we had fertility treatment for this one conceived naturally - I was told I could never do that ..... Well it's happened.
I feel I am struggling with the 2 we have as I am a full time SAHM and some downs are just crazy but other days I love every minute.
I am worried about health, money, I only have two arms, how will I do school drop offs, will my eldest be ok? She is my best mate, will she be ok?, I have just started to get my mojo back with exercising seeing friends having a bit of a life I am scared I am starting all over again where as I have to give my wholesf again. I am 38, I'm going to be an old mum.
Education is starting to bother me, how will I be involved with the eldest if I have a baby, how will I afford the schooling I want them to have?
Will 3 be that tough?
i am scared, happy, sad, frightened, excited however I need some advice please

Just found out I am pregnant with no 3 as well. I have had a few restless nights sleep, worrying about how we will manage.
At the moment life is very easy, I do kindy drop offs with one, then have the day with the baby who has a big nap. My house is clean and tidy, I make healthy dinners each night and I had lost all of the baby weight.
Now I am scared Im going to put on lots of weight, the house won't be tidy and life will be chaos.
Are you worried about 3 cars east fitting in your car?

Hugs. I can't answer your questions yet but ask me in 3 weeks time and I'll let you know!
I was scared too, and I still have days where I wonder why we 're having another. In saying that though my eldest (just turned 4) has just started Kindy and all of a sudden has decided to be a grown up - daycare never had this effect on him.

I can relate to surprise pregnancies. I thought we were done after my 5th (dh 3rd) and then I was pregnant. I did a lot of worrying about mostly the same things you've mentioned and I couldn't get into the grove of having another. Sadly that pregnancy was a mmc. 4 months later I was wondering if I actually did want to try one last time and before I could mention it to dh I was pregnant!
Obviously after the mc I felt much differently and none of the concerns were there at all, only hoping this little surprise was safe.
We will just manage financially so that's ok and all the rest, will fall into place. We are all now waiting for our new daughter/sister to be born in less than a month and are very happy.
I hope for you ladies you are able to manage the major things and find the blessing in the surprise. Life is short, surround yourself with people you love.

I found out a few weeks ago I was pregnant with my 3rd and was happy/scared/ mostly freaking out!!
My biggest issues are:
- DS (13 months) sleeps with me and still BFs half the night!
- needing a CS. So will be away from the kids for x amount of time and DS is extremely clingy and will not go to ANYONE!
-doing school drop offs with a toddler and NB! (It was hard enough with just 1!!)
Oh and needing a bigger car (already have a 4 bedroom house so no drama there)
I sadly had a m/c a couple of days ago but it's got me wanted to just jump in and do it!
Best of luck on your journey.

It is hard sometimes to cope with the emotions. Take some time to get used to the idea. Let yourself have a cry if you need to that this isnt how you planned things ... its ok. It doesnt mean that you are not happy, or grateful, or dont love the baby ...
it just takes a bit of adjustment.
You WILL cope. You will make it work.

My 3rd pregnancy was planned but it happened very quickly so it almost feels like an accident.
When bubs is born, one of mine will be in school 5 days per week and the following year, the middle one will start kindy so it's not like I will have all 3 at home with me.
Currently googling ideas for bunk beds.
