I have a 2.5 year old son, a 9 month old daughter and am currently 28 weeks pregnant with girl/girl twins. I will have 4 children under 3 years old. Im coping well and I know it will be hard work, also a lot of fun. No negativity please, I get enough in real life lol. But am I the only one that has this gap? Ive heard of 3 under 3 or 2 under 2, but is there anyone else out there that can relate a little bit to what I will be facing in the next few months? Thanks :)

I don't know of anyone with quite that small of a gap, but if you have support from family, and if your husband is a hands on kind of father, i think you will be fine. The first year with the twins will probably be crazy, but just think about how close all your kids will be as they grow up! They will be best friends! I think the biggest thing will be getting them into a good routine so that you can make sure you can care for each one's needs at the right time...like make sure that the twins aren't hungry when you need to be putting the 9 month old down for a nap, etc.
I have a 2.5 year old and a 3 month old, and I babysit two boys (just turned 4 and almost 4). It is crazy at times, but totally doable.

Good luck!

wow I cannot even imagine, I hope it all goes well. I have seen people with 3 kids under 4 but not 4 kids.
