I'm due in February, and was just wondering if anyone has been through the transition from 2 to 3? For the first few days, 1 to 2 was an absolute nightmare, but now I have it down pat. Is the 2 to 3 transition the same? Easier? Harder? Please give me any experience you have with this redface.gif

i found the transition from 2 to 3 was much easier. there were still a few bumps but not as challenging as from 1 to 2. do you have any help lined up?

2 to 3 was much easier for me also.  1 to 2 was hard for me, but I also went from WOHM to SAHM at that time...  2 to 3 has been a breeze :)

I had a easier time with 2-3 then 1-2. 3-4 though was something else!

I agree, 2-3 was much much easier than 1-2. You're already used to multitasking and prioritizing everyone's needs. You know your limits and you know when to ask for help. You are already an expert on babies, so you have more confidence. Honestly, I am loving this 3-kid thing and I'm so glad we decided to have #3. My only advice would be to make sure you have some help in the early weeks--a babysitter and a housecleaner if you possibly can. Makes the transition so much easier. Good luck with everything!
