Saying Hello

Hi Ladies,

I have been lurking here for a while now, trying to get ideas on how to manage my family of 3 kids . You are such a great and supportive bunch of women!! I don't have a large family but I feel like I have a large family compared to all of my friends. I have an almost 6 year old, almost 4 year old, almost 1 year old and I just found out this morning that I might be pregnant with number 4. The test came back positive but I had a loss a few pregnancies back so I don't feel confident until I'm at least 12-14 weeks (really until they are born but I have to admit to the world that I am pregnant before then). I'm still nursing my little guy and I haven't even had a post partum period. I am excited, nervous, overwhelmed and everything in between. Hope I can tag along with you all of you....

Wow, congrats! Hope baby is healthy and growing--I understand the nerves, I'm the same way having had a few m/cs myself. I have 4 kids too!

Hello and welcome mama! Having three kids was when everything got hard for me, after that , it didn't really make a difference adding one more. I do hope that you have a successful pregnancy, you are always welcome to post here though!
I don't always feel like I have it " all together" - it is always work in progress with kids- isn't it?

Hello and welcome! Congrats on this new pg!

I completely agree with this!

That's what I've heard too... 3 is where it gets hard(er)... so now I'm wondering what 3.5 is like! DSS is with us every other week. Sometimes that makes things easier, sometimes its infinitely harder...

Congrats!

Welcome and congratulations on your newest pregnancy... I know it's a scary time, especially when you've had miscarriages in the past but I really, strongly feel we need to celebrate and be excited about each and every pregnancy, no matter how it turns out.

Sending lots of prayers your way for a healthy, sticky baby bean!
