Hi ladies,

I am new to this forum, I have been a part of the June 2010 and Sept 2011 PR. I have 2 little girls, Alicia and Rachel.... my older one is 2.5 and my younger is almost 1.5. My girls are 14 months apart, after having my 2nd I said no way are we having a 3rd. Now 17 months later and I'm thinking about a 3rd baby. We aren't trying for a specific gender although most DO think we want a "boy" that's why we would try but that's not the case, we would be just as happy with either. I am having a tough time deciding if we should go for 3 or not. I always wanted 3 but the transition from 1 to 2 was HARD. Any mommies on this board with 3 that have some advice, wisdom, etc for me? Is just as hard going from 2 to 3 as it was from 1 to 2?? Some times I think it can't be any harder then it already was, having a newborn with a 1yr old....now I have 2 so close in age that can and do play together nicely. So maybe it wouldn't as tough?? Help!

Welcome! I'm Chantelle, mommy to four- Alyssa (5), Rylan (almost 4), Sophia (18 months), and Hannah (4 months).

For us, going from 1 to 2 was by far the hardest (they were 17 months apart). After that, the adjustment wasn't nearly as bad. There is 2.5 years between #2 and #3, and 14 months between #3 and #4.

Im currently pregnant with number 3 so come may i will have first hand knowledge. My older 2 are almost 18 months apart and that transition was not to bad so i think i will be ok. This time there will be 4.5 and 3 years between the kids and the baby. Im more nervous about this transition than i was about having number 2.

Welcome! I'm Josie. I have a son who is 18 months and a daughter who is 8 months. And I'm currently pregnant with another baby. My ds and dd like to team up to make trouble lol and I'm also fearful about how they will react to the new baby but from what people have told me, having kids close together is not so bad =)

Good Luck with your decision. My girls are 5 years apart so my transition was not hard at all. If I were to have another I don't know how I'd adjust lol.. my youngest is 7!!
