How many of you out there have more than 2 kids? I am pregnant with my 4th baby and I couldn't be happier. Even after having 3 already i am still scared this time around. My 3rd and 4th babies will be just under 2 yrs apart where as the first 3 are 4 yrs apart. I was worried when my youngest boy was born about how my daughter would handle it and she did surprisingly well. But now my boy is half her age and that worries me. How did your kids handle the new arrival? And is the 4 th an easier adjustment?

I have 3 children - 7(F)/4(M)/6 mos(M). There didn't seem to be too many problems, aside from my daughter getting overzealous about being around her baby brother. I sometimes where how my other son feels, although he's past the point where he realizes, "this thing isn't leaving." I want to have one more, preferrably a girl, but we'll have to see what happens. You can never tell what's going to happen.

I have a two year old daughter, a four year old disabled son and a sixteen year old son. I think it is lovely to have two kids, wonderful to have three kids and superb to have four kids. My sister is very happy with her four children. She has a son aged fourteen, a son aged eleven, a daughter aged nine and a daughter aged five. My favorite age difference between kids is two or three years. Five years is a big age difference. That is me and my older sister. My older son liked it when at twelve years old when his baby brother was born. Then when he was fourteen years old he adored his new baby sister. Congratulations on the news you are pregnant with baby number four.

I have four children, two of each. Eldest is a girl, then a boy. We decided to go for baby number 3 and had aset of twins, they are a girl and a boy. I don't think we would have gone for baby number 4, but we didn't have a choice, love having four children and sometimes wish we had had five children. My children had no problems with any of the new babies

Congrats on baby #4! I have 3 kids. I can't say if the 4 is an easier adjustment or not. I think for the parents yes, the kids it's hard to say. My middle had a hard time with #3 once he started walking and getting into "her" things. She still has a hard time sometimes.

I guess it really depends on the age. My oldest one is 9 and I think he has the hardest time with the younger 2 getting into his things LOL
