expecting #3, what to expect? advice,stories?

Im 4 weeks, just shy of 26 yrs old and on my third.  My others are 8 and 4. Girl and boy.

I'm nervous about messing up the kid to adult ratio lol. Right now,the husband takes one. I take the other and we get through what ever we're doing.

Im nervous about the pregnancy. It seemed my 2nd was so much worse than the first. Im afraid that this ones gonna kill me. Haha.

So moms of 3+ or other women expecting #3 tell me.... was it hard going from 2 to 3? What was the hardest part?

This is number 5 for me. The pregnancy is not defined by the last. Each one of mine have been soooo different. Lol the change from 2 to 3...the hardest part was the stress before. Honestly it was the nerves and the worry. Yes it is a juggling act. But the build up was way harder than actually doing it. Lol My first 3 are all only 2 years apart. So I was just sure it would be a disaster. Then baby came and I survived the first weeks of trial and error before I knew it. :)

I got pregnant quick after having my second. I hardly rest my body or lost baby weight I gained. Now I'm 32,weeks and hanging on. I'm always in pain. Back and hips hurt. Can't roll to other side of bed without pain. I was,stressing a lot. But I'm making it little by little. But husband and family are big help. My 5 yr son helps with his baby sis and he is excited to have another baby in the house . Good luck . Everything will turn out fine.

I actually thought the third was easier then the second, my son was 5 but still old enough to know to help where needed and they'll love the baby and want to help out

And once you have the third, the 4th just slides right in the lineup. :).The worst is the people who constantly want me to baby sit. They are quick to ask me because "you already have 4. What's 1 more? You probably wouldn't even notice". Yes, you do still notice a whole extra kid. Lol
