My 4TH baby is due 8 days before my sons first birthday. Im freaking out!!! I dont know how Im going to do this. And Im tired of getting looks from people. Makes me feel wierd when I get those looks from people. Just makes me wanna say, what? Havent you ever seen a pregnant mother before? Anyway! Im worried because my son is so demanding all the time, I hardly ever get a break, and dad isnt that much help. Maybe ten mins a day.... and freaks out when the baby crys. SOOOO Im stressing about how im going to handle a one year old and a newborn. Sigh!

Good Luck, I had my kids all close in age as well, 11, 10, 8. My eight year old will be 9 in december. I think you'll be fine. Organization is your friend. Deep breaths and take it one day at a time.

All I can say is trust yourself. You've done it 3 times before... I'm sure the experience you have gained is simply amazing. I have a 22 month old, a 7 month old and I'm expecting my third (who will be born when my youngest is 11 months old)... and I also freak out at times and people also give me the looks and gasp when they realize I'm pregnant....again. I've finally learned to live with it and rejoice by the fact that my husband and I have been blessed with the the kids we have... You'll just have to take one day at a time. At least that's what I try to do. I remember freaking out when I was expecting number two and number one was still so demanding. And yes, at times it was chaos, specially since we moved to a new town when the baby was born and my husband had to work all day...but eventually one figures it out. Try to relax, as hard as that can be.... and remember you are a mother and you'll know what to do when the time comes. Good luck and God bless you and your family!
