I found 1 to 2 really hard because my eldest was only 2 when my youngest was born. I am now expecting 3 and both my older girls (5 and 3) are at school full time, so I will be at home on my own with the baby.

Im sure the school run will be challenging though!!

My 2 year old has never slept through the night, so i think the lack of sleep wont be a challenge for me this time around haha.
The age gap is nice to be honest. Jayden is really good with benn and helps out which is nice, he dotes on him.

Your children sound just like mine and you have the same worries as me! My two will be 8 and 3 when number 3 arrives.

#1 was always a brilliant sleeper well behaved little star.
#2 Iím lucky if she only wakes up twice in the night. Sheís a little terror

Thereís 5 years between them two and that was hard. Iím hoping because Iím still kinda in the swing of getting up nappies ect that the jump from 2/3 will be okay but I am sooooooooo worried

Yeh sounds a very similar situation! Except yours are girls and mine are boys
I’m really hoping number 3 is chilled out as my youngest is sooo clingy and i just know he will be fighting for my attention lol.
When are you due? You’re a bit further ahead in preg than me.

I’m due August 17th.

#2 is the same she’s stuck to me! There’s no such thing as personal space.

I do wonder how I’m going to make time for everyone and myself.

School runs!!! I hadn’t even thought of them that’s going to be fun! Luckily #1 will be 8 so she’s pretty good at getting herself ready and will help with #2... I hope!

I have been told going to 3 is easy though. I hope there all right

Thanks for this thread!

Me and OH are going to try for baby no3 in the spring. I currently have a 5 year old and just turned 2 year old. Hopefully when a new baby arrives DD1 will be in year 1 and DD2 just starting nursery .

Itís good to hear what mums of 3 or more children think of this period. I found 1-2 pretty easy although we didnít have to be our first thing as DD1 was in afternoon nursery

I find I get myself very stressed quickly !

Regarding the school runs... I find you just learn to be a bit more organised! I dont get up any earlier than I did when I had 1 child.. just takes a bit more organising and a good routine x

Be sure to keep us updated as baby #3 arrives! My husband and I are thinking of trying for our third baby this summer and I am hoping that the two older boys will play together so the transition will be smoother this time around!

From 1-2 kids was hard for me because my first born was so clingy and I felt guilty about neglecting him for the baby! Then I would feel opposite guilt that I wasn't giving my full attention to the baby!

With a third, I would hope the older two would bond and play together giving more "me time" or rather "mom time" for the newborn!

I honestly think having a baby is a huge transition either way. But how I look at it is, back years and years ago women would have 8-15 children and they managed! when there was no such thing as birth control. If they can do it with lack of amazing facilities like we have then we can do this. I remember feeling so guilty when I had number two because my eldest was only just 2 but they are now the BEST of friends and adore each other. I think the school run etc will be difficult but if you can do it with two what’s one more? we got this ladies if I can do three on my own I’m sure you can do three. My mum used to always say to me you’ll never regret having another one (you’ll be too in love) but you’ll regret not having more. So I’m going with that. xxxx
