Mommy of Three Club

I have my 3 almost 4 year old Julia Michelle and my 2 year old Grace Victoria. They are 21 months apart and this new baby will be 2 1/2 years exactly under my 2 year old when he/she is born. I am really excited! This is our last baby. Are any of you going to have even more than 3 or are you done? I noticed that all three pregnancies have had their similarities, but for the most part are vastly different. How about you guys?

Re: Mommy of Three Club

Hi, I am in as well! I have two daughters, Sarah (5) and Chloe (4). There will be a 6 year age difference between the baby and Sarah my oldest. This is our last baby. I come from a family of three and always wanted 3 children.

Have a good day all!

Re: Mommy of Three Club

This is my first but my df's third, so this will definitely be our last. Not to mention all the problems we've encountered with this pg. We love kids, but Val's body can't take anymore and three is expensive as it is. We want them to have all the best advantages that we can, of course. She has two girls from her first marriage and I was told I probably would never have kids from an accident I had. But I never got checked out and I guess my swimmers are fine even if I'm only running on 10 %. We weren't even trying and it happened the very first time. We are definitely blessed ! Take care <IMG SRC="">

Re: Mommy of Three Club

I am not pregnant or TTC I just came across the title of 3 and it fits me too lol.
I have 3 daughters...Tanya Elizabeth 21...Ashley Dawn 18 and Casey Leigh 12. Tanya and Ashley were 2 and a half years apart which was a good thing and kinda easy having them close in age. Casey is 6 years younger than Ashley that was a tough one. Ashley was used to being the baby and I had a tough time with that middle child syndrome lol. The poor child was lost she even regressed a bit to wetting the bed and all. I spent as much time with her as I could when the baby was sleeping and all and she snapped out of it quick.
As for my pregnancies all were different no morning sickness for any of them and they were all late. Tanya was 2 weeks late and weighed 8lbs 4 oz. Ashley was 2 days late and weighed 7lbs 14.5 oz. And Casey was 19 days late and weighed 8lbs. 11 oz. My parents also had 3 children one girl (me) and 2 boys. I lost a baby in 97 so it would have been 4 but I guess it was meant to be the magic 3. Was anyone else here very overdue and what was your baby's birth weight? Take care all.
Cheers Autumn.

Re: Mommy of Three Club

Kai was my 3rd baby, and DF's 3rd baby, but the 4th all together. We have Stephanie, 7 (his daughter), Caitlen, 5 (my daughter), Arica, 18 mo, and Kai, 7 wks.

We dont know for sure yet if Kai will be our last or not, but we do know at the very least it will be several years before we even think of it again. Pregnancy is very difficult for me, and it gets worse each time, and this time instead of just having premature labor, I also had a premature baby. The big question is would I be able to carry even to 36 weeks again ...

We are happy with our critters at the moment. Stephie lives with her mom and we are trying to get regular visitation going - it is hard because her mom did not let us see her for 2 years and told her bunches of lies - but it is coming along. Eventually we will ask for custody of her. Then it really will be 4 for us!! Maybe we will wait until after that to decide ...

Angel, et al

Re: Mommy of Three Club

That's too bad about the mother of Stephanie. It's a shame.

As for pregnancies the only thing the same pretty much is that I am big and had no real morning sickness with any, thank the LORD! I am calling this pregnancy the weenie in-betweenie. My first pregnancy was pretty uneventful until 30 weeks with onset of pre-eclamsia then PIH in labor. No real pain or discomfort until week 37 though so no big deal. Pregnancy 2 was just the pits with all the pain I suffered from about week 8 on. Weeks 12 through 16 were the worst cramping and ligaments. She was so low. I delivered at 38 weeks. I couldn't take it anymore. Now so far I am feeling right down the middle of that and the first one so I really can't complain knowing how much worse it could be. I am slightly out of breath the last couple days, a little off kilter now that belly is bigger, and feeling the ligament pain enough to tire me, but I have always been a trooper so I'll get passed it. I keep reminding myself that this is my last time I'll ever get to experience a life inside me so cherish it. I am so blessed to have gotten to do this experience now for the third time.

I am 17 weeks and counting the weeks until maternity leave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 19 more!!!!!!!!!! 3 more weeks until my u/s!!!!! <IMG SRC=""> <IMG SRC="">

Re: Mommy of Three Club

Well as you probobly already know I have a 6 year old boy and a 6 month old boy and I am now 4 months pregnant. My first 2 were almost identical and this one is totally different. Hopefully it means its a girl this time around. And I plan on getting my tubes tied after this one is born.
