Yep, #3 will be here about 5 months before DD#1's 3rd birthday. I know I'm totally crazy, but I'm so excited to have three. I'm also really glad they're so close in age. They'll be good friends.

Anyone else realizing that you are outnumbered now? I'm envisioning them tying us up and taking the ship.

We're having our third, too! Dh has been saying he was content with two for a while, but I talked him into a third. (he's excited, btw ) I'm happy, but now and then I kind of panic- What was I thinking?! Like, how will I walk to the park with three kids by myself? Or really, ever leave the house with three kids by myself?!
I do really like the idea of having an oldest, middle and youngest. Just seems right somehow.

ME!
My DH has a bro and a sis and I think always wanted his kids to have more than one sibling. In my family it's just me and my bro, so I took some convincing. Our first two are so stinkin' cute, it didn't take long.
Our daughter is going to be 4 1/2 and our son will be barely 3 when this one rolls in.

I am glad to see that several of you in this DDC have kids close in age like we do. I was nervous at first that my youngest 2 will only be 20 mos apart...But hey--it's done now!!
I'm due very late Dec/early Jan.

Me, too.

DD#1 will be 3.6 and DD#2 will be 2.25 when #3 arrives.

I'm getting used to the idea, but still freaking out.

Are most of you SAHM? I'm going to need a LOT of advise because it looks like I'm heading home come December.

Well I only got 6 and a half more weeks to go before I expect my third little one to make her grand entrance.

Very excited! Very tired! And wondering if me and DH have absolutely lost our minds!

Just wanted to wish you all good luck
I found the third pregnancy easier than my second.

When do you all think you will start showing? When do you plan to start wearing maternity stuff? I gave everything away, but a friend of mine is duein July and I can get some of my stuff back then. Will I need anything before?

I already have my little baby pouch but I can tell my clothes feel different. It might just be in my head though. I was in Maternity clothes by the time I was 8 weeks with my 2nd so I am thinking I probably will be in them soon since they are more comfortable.

My main concern is how I am gonna handle it all... plus I have a pretty good feeling it is twins I just know. maybe not but for some reason both me and hubby have been thinking it is which will change our little family from four to six! :

This is my fourth pregnancy, will be third living child (hopefully). I have two boys already and though this will be our last I don't really care which gender we get this time.

I'm hoping I won't start showing until the second trimester. I can't remember when I showed with my youngest, I was a sahm so it didn't really matter. Plus, I was only a few months pp so I hadn't lost all the weight. I don't want to tell my job for as long as possible (just started this job!) or until I find a work at home job.

When I have to wear maternity, I'll wear it.

I really have no idea when to expect showing though. I have weight to lose so have no idea if that will make a difference.

This will be our third, too. DD will be 3 and ds will be almost 6 in January.
I just found out today, so I'm still really in shock. I'm really scared/nervous but we were planning to try in about 5 months anyway, so this is just a bit earlier than we were expecting.
I'm just waiting for it to sink in!!

This is my 3rd. We were planning on getting pregnant later in the year around September or so, but um his little swimmers had other plans. Anyways I have always wanted 3, but now I'm having alot of panic attacks as far as how are we going to afford a new car since 3 car seats won't fit in either one of our cars. I'm also a little nervous about how I would be going out with 3 kids when going out with 2 now can be stressful. I know that it will all even out in the end, but right now :

#2 for dh but #4 for me being pregnant. My first I gave up for adoption when I was young. We still keep in touch. It's an open adoption.
Madison will be 7.5 and Aidan will be shy of 2 1/2 when this one is born..
: i wanted them close since there is a 5r year gap but I still don't know how I will handle it..

I probably won't be in maternity clothes until late July. I'm pretty tiny, but I just don't show that much until month 6, then everything jumps out.

Also, I grew up in a large family (oldest of seven), so I kind of think it's funny to think of three kids as a lot to take care of. I was babysitting four of my younger siblings at the same time from the age of 9. (Of course being a mother is totally different, and I never had to take them shopping or anything, but I did have to help manage everyone when my mom took us all shopping.)

I know my family is not even close to complete. I feel like I'm just getting started here with #3. I've always felt I wanted at least 6, but after my wonderful birthing experiences, I'm leaning closer to 8. We'll just have to see how it goes. I don't want to be having babies into my late 30s and early 40s... by then DD#1 could be having babies, and I'd rather focus on being a grandmother at that point. But I started young (DD#1 was born two months after my 22nd birthday), and I'm only 24 now, so at my current rate, I could easily have 8 kids before I turn 35.

I'm totally crazy aren't I.
