3 Kids Under the Age of Two...Help!

by Renea

We just found out today that we are expecting twins. Even though I'm excited I am fearful because we currently have a 13 Month old son. He is the center of our lives and I just can't imagine having three under the age of two! Can some other moms tell me their experiences.

3 in a year
by: Terri

My first was born sept. 15 and my twins were born on sept 12th the following year so I literally had 3 within a year. It's very hard some days but it is do-able. God never gives you more than you can handle.
On the tough days I have to remind myself that this will not last forever, and on the good days I feel so lucky! One of the perks is that you can entertain all three babies with the same thing instead of trying to please a 2yr old, 4yr old and a 7yr old.
Take the help when you can. If somebody asks what they can do, tell them they can do some dishes, laundry or take the older one out for a bit.
It will all be fine. You will be great!

I am in the same boat. My daughter is 6 1/2 months old, and I am 14 weeks pregnant with twins. We call it a happy oops! Haha. But I feel bad that I am too tired to play with her some days, how am I gonna make time after the twins come? 3 in a year is very scary!

Your not alone feeling this way, my wife is almost 12 weeks pregant with twins, we also have a 22month old son. We planned this pregnancy but didnt expect the blessing of two! Scary, wonderful, happy, sad, grateful. She has had mixed emotions, I want her to feel like I do and believe she will in time. I'm trying to be there for her specially now. I want her to know she is not alone in feeling this way and everything will be alright. I know in my heart it will. You will too. Take care.

I know how u feel I have 4 kids there 7,4,2, and 1 and im 34weeks pregnant with twin girls the only advice I would give you is try to do the best you can when it comes to managing your time and make sure that you have a good support team your spouse mom sister etc.... to help you out as much as they can but dont worry yourself about it after a couple weeks or so im pretty sure you will get use to it and its something that you want even be worried about anymore so good luck.

having a housefull of little ones!
by: Twin Momma WC

When I was pregnant with my twins my son was three. He was also the center of our universe. When my twins came I really reached out to my family and asked them specifically to love my son more and cuddle and kiss him and spend lots of time with him. I knew I couldn't. At times it was hard because he would cry and just want me and I couldn't be there like I was before. Those first 4 mos were a blur especially when ur nursing newborn twins. Now my twins just turned two and we found out we are having another baby. I will be in the reverse order of you two- but still have three children under 3 to take care of. I'd like to get the twins out of diapers but we'll see- i'm also working and we just got done moving. Its amazing how life works and looking back even more amazing that I got through it. My best friend had twins before me and she said all the advice i can give you is, "Just do it." and she's right, 3 am 10pm whatever you just get up and keep moving, just do it. And your body will do it. My advice is to use a reliable method of birthcontrol. Serious.

in the same boat
by: JulesC

I know exactly how you feel. I'm currently 22 wks pregnant with twin boys and my daughter will be 19 mths in 3 days. She will likely be around 22 mths when the twins are born - 3 under 2 scares the heck out of me. The people that I have talked too have said that the first year or two will be a blur but then after that it gets much easier.
