Congratulations. I have three so no advice but if you have always wanted four and you are going to get them then just enjoy.

I know you're right I have always wanted four and I am very lucky to be hopefully getting what I wanted just a bit nervous about the close age gap and juggling everything!

Congratulations! You will manage. Once you're in the swing of things, it will fly past. I think the thought of a situation is always more worrying/terrifying than when you're actually in it. And, when the first blurry bit of madness out of the way it will be wonderful xx

4 under 2!
I used to have 4 under 4 which was a bit unheard of.

2 sets of twins. Luck of the draw! grin

I found it lovely having two close in age, was my favourite age gap! My 4th just slotted in - spent a lot of time observing the others which she loved.

Hello! I have 2 12 months apart (and 2 others) it was totally fine - they are really close and have been the whole time. 1 was 3 months when got pg with another.....so breastfed through pg (was fine) then tandem fed for 1 yr. (was also totally fine!) they used to hold hand when feeding together - so sweet - although I mostly fed separately.
It will all be ok, you do go through a learning curve (but you do every time you have a baby) but it doesn't last long - then it is all just normal. Semi-organised chaos reigns in our house sometimes - and sometimes I feel like I've got it all under control.....4 children is a lovely number, congrats!

Snap.... I have just found out that I'm 5 weeks pregnant. This is a planned pregnancy, but I have been panicking and worrying about people will say (work etc).
It will be ok, won't it?
Congratulations by the way smile

Congratulations to you too prizesmile I'm 13 weeks now and have really chilled out about the situation now the shock has worn off! It will be fine I am planning to take up any offer of help but if none come I will be fine, the tiredness in the first 12 weeks was hard but has now lifted( for now!)
It really will be fine I am really excited now and can't wait for Octobersmile

So glad to hear! I am slowly getting my head around it! DH told my father in law who was really thrilled, apparently you can't have too many children! That made us both feel much better, but terrified of telling anyone else.... My DSister has been TTC since October...really hope it doesn't upset her...praying she will get her BFP before I have to say!
Really glad you are feeling positive and excited. Lovely to hear someone in the same boat doing so well xxxx
Ps crushing tiredness (teach full time on top of 3 kids) and hormones not the best! Chin up! Xxx
