I just found out I was pregnant with baby number 4: Advice?

Hi mamas. So I just found out I’m pregnant with baby number 4 and really could use some encouraging words. Me and my husband have a child who’s 1 and I have a child who’s 5 and he has a child who’s about to be 3. I’m very nervous about having a baby so close to our 1 year old.

Hun I had 3 babies in 3 yrs. It can be difficult at times. But it’s so rewarding.

I just had baby #4. Ours are 12, 8, 7, 21 months tomorrow, and 3 weeks Friday. Having them so close is hard, but as long as you include the 1 year old in helping take care of the baby, they will bond. Every night when my almost 2 year old goes to bed, we have him tell his baby sister “night night” and he helps hold her bottle, and likes to help pay her back when we burp her. Some days are better than others. Mornings are what are craziest for us so far because both babies seem to wake up around the same time, but we’re trying to get into a groove. It’ll be okay, mama, just remember to breathe when it gets overwhelming or frustrating (and it will).

I have an little that is 18 months and I am 7 months pregnant with #2…I am nervous but I think it will be good having them so close. My brother and I are almost 5yrs apart and pretty much hated each other

I have 3 and my middle son was 8 months when I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd, my daughter, I was so upset, I cried. I knew I was not ready for that yet but once she came, I loved her more than words could ever describe. And I was so thankful for her, all my doubt just melted away. It gets hard sometimes, but she’s such a big blessing, and now she’s 3 and I can’t imagine my life without her. Once that baby is born, it won’t be easy, but you’ll love that baby just like you love your others and everything else will just work itself out. Don’t overthink it. There’s nothing you can do about it now so just wait it out and everything will feel okay once you’re holding that baby in your arms:)

Your pregnant with #3, not 4.

It can be crazy but My oldest will be 3 in July my second turned 1 in April and I’m due with my 3rd at the end of august. Honestly the crazy is worth it because they are very close. I actually happy mine are gonna be close in age. And I’m 37 and the hubby is 45. We started late but love that our kids are gonna grow up close

My eldest is 10 then 5, 4, 1 & due in September. Its busy but the fact closer age means a playmate. Life is pretty good once you learn to relax & find a jig that works for you. Congratulations Mama! What a wonderful blessing xx.

Maybe you should have been on b.c . Just a suggestion

I am due with planned baby number 4 and my youngest is a year and a half she will be almost two by the tome baby is here! All of my children are close in age my oldest is 4 my middle will be 3 in July and my youngest will be two in December baby number 4 is due in November! It keeps you on your toes but it’s the sweetest thing to watch them love each other! They don’t get jealous of each other it has definitely been challenging but worth it completely

We just had our fourth boy. 11, 5, 3, and 5 months. The last two have the same birthday. It’s been okay lol. It’s a baby

I found out I was pregnant with my son on my daughters 1st bday. It will be okay! I love how close my two are! Yea it can be a little exhausting but they have the best bond! Have your 1yr old help with baby. We read lots of big sister books. And just made sure she was involved and felt loved.

What a blessing! The 1 yr old and new baby will be close in age but they grow so fast. Patience and lots of snuggles.

My 2 oldest are 14 girl & 15 boy, they are 15 months apart. I also have a 9 and 3 yr old. Seeing the bond that my 2 oldest have, I wish I would have had all of them closer together. Although the beginning was rough, the bond is absolutely amazing. Good luck
