I am pregnant with my 3rd baby.  Something that I always thought was a possibility but could not imagine it quite happening.  It was put off due to how fast our first 2 children came.  Now that they are 8 and 9 years old, I have to start over in a way, but I Know it will be a different experience than it was with the first two.  I am in my late 30s.  Any advice?

Nice to see that someone else is going through a similar situation - I am not pregnant, but thinking about.  I think what slows my thinking is that I will need to take everything out again, adjust, rely on family to help, etc.  But I think at the same time, it would all just work out.  It's not like I wouldn't know what I was doing, you know?

This is going to be such a nice thing for your family. The older kids will mature and turn their attention to your younger sibling at times and even help a little. Babies bring such joy. A lot of what you've experienced previously will come back. Now ... the baby products have changed a great deal --- they get a little better every 5 years I find.

I have a 13 year old boy.  Then had another baby hes 5, and my last is 3.  My older son adores the fact hes the big brother.  Poor kid just wanted to be a brother so bad, but I won't lie my Older son and my youngest who is the oldest girl butts heads like crazy!

Make the younger ones feel like they will be a big help to you. My youngest loves the idea that he will be a big brother and he is looking forward to being my "assistant".
