Hi, i am very new on here and wondered if anyone in a similar position to me could offer any advice. I have a son who is nearly 3, a daughter who is 7 months and i have just found out i am 5 weeks pregnant to my surprise!!! I work part time and i am currentlyt doing a part time degree with the open university. I am very worried about the effect this will have on my children, my relationship, my wellbeing, emotional and mental health and how on earth i will cope with all of this haha! i would say i am quite a strong person, have a good relationship with my partner and have a supportive family but when it comes down to it, it is me that the responsibility lies with, any advice from anyone who is in a similar position as me???
I'm not in that situation but have two friends who have just had their third when their firstborns are 3. They are both coping remarkably well and I think it's one of those situations that seems insurmountable but once you're in the thick of it you find you can do it. I must admit that neither of them work nor are they doing a degree, I would suggest that something will need to give for the short term after you have no. 3 to give yourself a chance of not feeling completely overwhelmed. All the best with it and I hope the shock and fear subside and you can enjoy your pregnancy.
Hi I have three, the oldest was 2.5 when youngest was born. Less than 12 mionths between younger 2. I won't lie its hard, bit like a production line when they are little. Mine are nearly all terns now so i have survived just
hi, thanks for your messages. Im in my first year of my degree and because it is part time its gonna take me 6 year to complete. i think i have an option to do a year at a time, so by the time my baby is due i will have finished my first year so possible could put it off for a year. The funny thing is i am due to return to work next week from maternity leave only to tell them i am pregnant again! im really nervous about telling them i am pregnant again but i suppose there is nothing they can do about it is there?
