    Definitely. It takes a lot of organising :haha: I have 2 October birthdays and try to wait until I've finished sorting their birthdays to start buying for Christmas.

    Hi again!
    Well we had baby 5 in April of 2021. Now waiting on my cycle to return (this is the longest it’s ever taken …!) so we can TTC our final babe. I just turned 40 and DH just turned 41.

    Not sure if this is the right place to post - please point me to a better place if there is one. How do you decide to go from 3 to 4? I always planned on 3 children, I now have a 11 year old, 8 year old and an almost 1 year old. Since youngest was a few weeks old I’ve kept thinking of a 4th abs that feeling just won’t go away! Any advice!

    Hey love:hi: we just done it tbh we decided we wanted another (then turned to 6 lol) but going from 3 to 4 was not as bad as people make out we adapted pretty well xx

    Agreed. 3-4 was our easiest transition (except 0-1, that was a breeze cause I was so beyond ready to be a mom!)

    I’m pleased to hear 3-4 wasn’t that bad as that’s what we are doing at the moment!

    I’m an exception, I jumped from 2 and had twins for my 3 and 4 and loved every moment. I think it depends how ready and keen you are for a new addition.

    I had the same. I had sons in 1994 and 1996 then got pregnant in 2005 and had identical twin boys in 2006. I then had my fifth son in 2009.

    They just adjust in the mix after 2 I think Lol, we are due number 6 and I don’t think it will be a transition, she’ll just adjust with the others lol
