think so yes
younger 2, unless you have a tricky eldest
erm - do your kids have baby dolls? they can help prepare them. buy more flannels and dig out some babygros.
2 in nappies - hard work but not as bad as you'd think!

how will you cope - erm....will get back to you on that! (have 2 18 months apart already, have another on the way btw)

DD1 was 2.1 when dd2 was born,

I would say yes to the double buggy but maybe a second hand one as it wont be used for long.

Would't worry about who shares with who yet, baby could go in with you for a while.

I have 2 in nappies, seem to spend all day changing nappies and sometime forget to do dd1's and she has to remind me Grin

hold old is no.1?

If you do a lot of walking, you'll need a double buggy. 2 in nappies is a pain but you get used to it! If dd2 is still have an after lunch nap, try and get the baby down at the same time so that you get some well earned rest. I found that the break in the middle of the day was an absolute life saver in the first year and I really mourned the loss of that nap when my eldest grew out of it!

oh I thought you meant who should share the buggy! I thought it was an odd question.

don't worry about it yet.

we have dd1 (5 years old) and dd2 (13 months old) and I think I could be 12 to 14 weeks pg Smile

Have a look at \link{\this}. Its a cheaper option than buying a double. I would have said go for a buggy board but I think 18months is still quite young. There is also the Litaf seat to go which could be another option (buggy board with a seat), cheaper than the buggypod but it has no harness just a basic seat with a standing platform.

Sorry if you knew all this, just thought I'd share.
Congratulations Smile

Yes too double buggy
Mine are a nightmare sharing a room they wake each other up so avoid it if you possibly can. Or if not, id put the older two together.
The youngest one is probably young enough to just accept the situation (well mine did)
2 in nappies is the same as 1 in nappies just twice the work!

You will cope because you have too. Make sure you have a set bedtime so you at least get some peace and quiet in the evening. Put clothes out for the next morning before you go to bed. etc

I have no secrets - I struggle through every day im afraid! Blush
