I have two kids 20 months apart and I just barely found out I’m pregnant. The gap between my 2nd and 3rd will be 18 months. This wasn’t my plan at all, we were trying to prevent pregnancy and my husband will be starting his Anesthesiology residency training this summer. I am feeling overwhelmed and stressed out. How did you do it? How did you have Max and Elle so close together? Do you have any tips for me? I need some advice from a seasoned mother! Thank you so much!
Oh I am sooo excited for you!! (And I’m so sorry I just barely got this…maybe you’ve figured it all out by now!). I didn’t have three that close, but I will admit that having three littles was one of the trickiest adjustments for me. But as I look back on it, it was the BEST.
(But then, I keep getting more and more “bests”)
My best advice would just be to remember to breathe.
And while you’re at it, breathe those babies in with all your might.
I know, so difficult to do in the middle of a tantrum and three babies needing different things at the same time and juice sticking to your feet and laundry sprawled all over the place and being bleary-eyed from lack of sleep. It will be tough, there’s no cushioning that little fact.
