Im 21 with 3 kids. just breathe!

People will always have something negative to say, just dont take everything they say to heart!

Your not the only 1 going through this. Stay strong.

Im here if youd like to talk!

I'm 24 with 3 kids. You will pull your hair out, wanna scream and even cry at times, but they are worth it! Adding number 3 is honestly way easier then adding number 2 I think. I have found if you talk to older ppl like Grandparents/ your parent age they also had their kids young and close in age. I was amazed at how many ppl I have met who were just like me. My kids are 22 month apart, and 20 months apart.
If you are worried about this it proves you are a good mom and want to be a good mom so just remember someday they will be grown and you want them to look back and remember how brave and strong you were for making it!

I have three..all be before I was 23. I found that it actually got easier after the second one... your already used to taking care of two, one more isn't all the much harder(after they are all sleeping at night of course, haha) But even with the lack of sleep,I average maybe five hours at night... not just because my youngest still gets up sometimes, but because its the only time I have to myself, Im really big on bed times and regular routines to keep myself sane and to keep the kids happy and well taken care of during stressful times. My oldest is five now, then three and my youngest is almost two so I'm out of the infant stages and it does get easier as they get older because my oldest ones have always wanted to help and they adore their youngest brother. You'll do great, it probably wont even take you that long to adjust... Good Luck :)

Hi, I'm 21 and I have 3 little girls ages 4, 1 and 1 month. It can feel very overwhelming at times but I wouldn't change it for anything. It will all be worth it and people are gonna talk if you do good or bad they won't be satisfied. As long as you and your kids are happy is all that matters... Good luck! :)

I was 20yrs old with a 2yr old son, an infant daughter, and pregnant again. I gave birth to my 3rd child six months after I turned 21yrs old. I was very excited to have my 3rd daughter. Six weeks before I conceived her, I miscarried a baby girl, so the entire pregnancy was exciting and heartbreaking. Are you married or in a stable relationship? If you are, then tell everyone that THEY are not paying your bills, so they can butt out.



Get use to the comments though. I'm now 28yrs old with five children, ages 10yrs, 8yrs, 7yrs, 5yrs, and 4yrs. I get nasty looks all the time, except when I'm wearing my scrubs and have my name tag on that says I'm a nurse.

gratz on your children and your new one on the way! I was 18 when I got pregnant with my daughter and had her when I was 19, Im now 21 and just had my son in the beginning of January, People are gonna say what theyre gonna say, but be a strong momma and tune them out, its not like your kids are sickly Im sure youre doing a great job with the 2 you have and will still do great with your upcoming 3rd =D Gratz again and best of luck/wishes to you in the future
