I am married and I have 2 children. My daughter is 14 (from a previous) marraige and my son is 6. I just found out I am 5 weeks pregnat with my third child. I was a complete shock to us cause I was on the pill and only been off it for a few months and we were careful!! Anyway, I am pregnant and happy.

We have a few situations that I need advice on:

1.) Our living quarters....we rent a 3 bdrm duplex but the 2 kids rooms are very small. You def can't get a crib in either room....Once the baby is out of the crib and in a bed then we could prob do bunks or something but the rooms are microscopic small, esp my little ones. We have a decent sized room but our furniture is all big and bulky and I can't see us living comfortably in there....I kind of want a special place for the baby...WE also cannot afford more rent or to move, esp since I will not be working.

2.) I am very concerned about the age difference all 3 kids will have....My daughter, 14 my son will be 7 ince the baby is born...I am concerned that it will be hard to do things where all 3 kids would benefit.

Please help me with some advice or encouragement cause like I said we are happy but just very concerned!

i dont know what to say about the living situation but... my sister and i were 8 years apart and she was more of a mother figure to me than a sister. i value her greatly in my life i call her for advice often. and then when my dad got remarried he had two more kids who i am 10 and 11 years older than. i dont know how it worked out that we enjoy alot of the same family activities but it did. i think once you fall in a routine with the new child so will the rest of your children. it works out. this was my experince with my siblings. hope that helps in someway.

huge thank you to *kiliki* for the amazing siggy!

I am due next month and my kids will be 9 years apart. They are super excited about having a baby in the house. I wouldn't worry about the room either. For 2 years I shared a small room with both of my children while I lived with my father. Things can always change before then.

Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy!
