Hi all havnt posted a thread on here in a loooong time. I've been having all signs and symptoms of being pregnant had a couple of negative tests but just two days after I now have 3 positives only faint lines but they are visible!
I'm now petrified because this was unplanned and my cool had fell out on its own about 5 weeks ago. I have a 5 and 3 year old already and hubby works crazy hours, I just hope I can cope with 3 confused
Anyone else pregnant with their 3rd? What was your first reactions? I've also suffered PND with both my children that's another concern.

Just wanted to say, you will be ok. The thing is, when another one comes along, you adapt. It's because you have no option once baby arrives but it's still a lovely experience. I'm pregnant with 4th and the only thing that actually worries me is doing the school run with a new baby and the others! At home, routine works well. Bedtimes are a must. Once mine go to bed, that's 'me' time. When me and partner sit to talk etc.
The other side of things, with the PND, your aware it's happened twice before and they will offer you more support. You can speak to the mental health midwife who will understand and try and help any way they can. Don't ever be afraid to flag it up before they do or to express your concerns. Wishing you the best xx

Thanks so much for your message I'm probably at the stage of panic and worry hormones everywhere
My kids can be a handful lol that what make me wonder if I'll cope, just want to be able to give each one of them every bit of my attention and not end up slacking with my other with a new baby. If that makes sense.
Thanks again for your reply and wishing you all the best with your 4th xxxx ❤️

Your welcome!
Don't get me wrong, some days are tough but you know that with having 2 already. But the good always outweighs the bad in the end. That's also why I like bedtimes, time to yourself is important too. I'm by no means a strict mummy but I do what makes life easier!
Thank you for the good wishes too! Xxx

I'm pregnant with my 3rd too!! Ive got a 4 year old and a 2year 9 month. I also have the same fears as you but I reasoned if I can cope with the 17 month gap I had with the first 2 then I can cope with this one and a much bigger age gap.
It sounds like you'll have one at nursery and one at school which should help? I also suffered with PND twice. Not severely but I did have it so that worries me too. On the other hand, this is going to be our last child (hopefully) so I'm determined to make the most of it and try and enjoy what I can. All the very best to you.
