I had 3 children 2 and under back in the day. I survived it and now my oldest is 9 and my twins are 7. I have a new guy too, he's almost 18 months. It was definitely hard for the first couple of years but now it's great having twins and closely spaced children. My poor baby is going to be lonely, although he loves hanging out with his brothers and they love him too.

*tipping my hat to you, momma*

I thought my house was crazy. I hate it when people say it to me, but I can't even imagine how shell shocked you must be now.

My oldest dd was 5.5 when the twins were born and bumped us up to 4 kids. They were born one week before she went to K. I've spent the past year getting my feet back underneath me and now I'm still trying to juggle. Its getting harder as the babies get bigger.

I wanted 3 babies. I was really stuck on that number, I figured three would be perfect. Apparently God had other plans for me, lol. He must have wanted me to have 4 because if I hadn't had twins there is no way I would have gone for another one. I am SO DONE having babies. I hated being pregnant, really. I spent the whole time being miserably uncomfortable and worrying constantly. But I'm so happy with my babies. Crazy and stressed out sometimes, but happy.

In February I'll have 3 under 3- actually, a newly-turned-two-year-old and newborns. YIKES! I'm 20 and DH is 22 I think I fit the bill!

NAK-only have one hand, but I think I qualify. I had 4 kids in 37 months. Life is totally nuts but I am loving it. : Will type more later.....

I had three under two. I now have a 23 month old, and two 3.5 yr olds.
post #28 of 35
I have 3.5yo MZ boys, and a 1.5yo girl. It's much better than it was a year ago!

We would like more kids, but I need SOMEONE to tell me I'll survive having 4 kids. :
post #29 of 35
We had three under 1.5 for a month, and 3 under 2 for a while. Now 3 under 3 seems easy. Am I crazy for wanting to go for 4 under 4???? I am getting serious TTC jealousy..... but dh is not ready.

nak...we had 5 under 5 for a month. Now we have...dd 5, ds 3 1/2, ds 2, dd 3 mo, dd 3 mo. :-) I would LOVE to find someone with more than me! ...or even as many. It does seem like that would help! lol I am starting homeschool with my 5 year old this year. She loves learning, so I am not too worried. When my 3 yr old is ready...now that may be another story!

going from 3 to 4

Wondering how any of you decided to take the leap from 3 to 4. I have twin 3yods and a 5 1/2 yodd. I am so afraid to have twins again, but I really want one more! We just don't have the space or money for 5 kids! How do those of you who have 4 or 5 do it? I have read it's just lots of organizing and delegating......Also, any tips on giving individual attention to all those cuties? My dh his really worried about spreading our attention too thin.......

We went from 2 to 4 and they key for me is organization and declutterization (if that is a word).

We had 4 under four at one point. now they are almost 7, 5 1/2 and 3. We also jumped from 2 to 4. But it worked perfect for us. we had two boys and then got two girls in only three pregnancies .

We'll have 4 under 3 when the babies get here. :
post #35 of 35
We had 4 under 4 and will have 5 in 5 1/2 when the next baby comes. Is it normal for those who've had a baby after having twins to constantly wonder if it's twins again?? I can't get that out of my head that there is more than one in there. I can't think it's mother's intuition since I think it's just because my last pregnancy was twins. I keep telling my husband things like, "When the babies get here..." or "Boy, these babies are hungry" as I pat my tummy.

6 under 6, I think it would be fun! : No really, I would love to be pregnant with twins again.
