Hi ladies, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm not new to JM, just new to this board. I am a member of the April 2012 ddc..but my little guy decided to be early and come in February. We just found out yesterday that we're expecting number three, and by our calculations this one should be due early feb. so basically we will have a 6 y/o a 11 mo old, and a brand new baby. Sheesh!!! How did you ladies with kiddos who are super close do it?! I don't know if I will be able to do it!! How did y'all deal with the judgements from other people!? ahh, now I'm freaking out all over again!

Hi there and welcome to our board! Lately it has been pretty quiet but we are trying to get it going again. There are some ladies on here that have kiddos less than a year apart and they could give you some great advice. My kids are 19 months apart but I thought it was wonderful having them close and now they are best buddies. The first few months were hard physically but then I got into a routine and it was fine and my daughter was a great big sister and my son was an easy baby. I remember being scared but I really do think you are given as much as you can handle. My advice about telling family is to be positive and don't let them make you feel bad because you will do great!

Hi, I'm Twyla mommy to Aubrey (3) and Isabel (2). They are just over a year apart. I felt the same when I was pregnant with Isabel. You'll get through it! Once I got the girls on the same schedule it was much easier.

I felt very judged at first because of all the "you are crazy" comments, but realized lately that people think i'm doing great with 2 when they are having a hard time with 1! Now my girls play together and entertain each other... it's great!

Special thanks to Claire1979 for my beautiful siggy!
