I have 3 LOs and we just found out we are expecting again. my oldest son and my DD are 16 months apart DD and dmy youngest son are 2 years apart. so they were all pretty close together. this time my youngest and this baby will be almost 4 years apart.. we go to our first OB appointment monday.. I keep thinking. I dont even rememer what its like being pregnant. or what to expect. I havent had to deal with a baby in almost 3 years. I seriouly dont even remember what to do with them lol. maybe its because im still in shock.. i find it kinda stupid being that I have 3 kids I should know all of this!! i dont know. anyone else feel like that after waiting so long.

My youngest turned 5 in September. I got pregnant in October. I barely remember what it's like being pregnant. Everything is different this time around. I have 2 girls and a boy(ages 11 and 5 for girls, 9 is the boy). I don't know if everything will come as naturally, but it will be fine no matter what. If I have to relearn stuff, I can do that. I think my biggest adjustment will be not having the drop-side crib. I used one with all 3 of my others, so that will be a change.

Im glad im not the only one lol, I keep telling myself its going to be easier because they will all be at school. so it will just be me and baby for a half day. instead of all of them be home and screaming lol. im sure i will have to learn some things. I just kinda feel like I should already know what to do. lol.

Don't worry I feel the same way, I have a 7 & 5 year old, and I feel so clueless on what the baby needs, what to buy etc.. Lol I don't remember feeling this clueless with my first.

My oldest two are 23 months apart, my middle two are 20 months apart, & this one will be 27 months younger than my third... I feel that way everytime. It's like you get use to the "now" that a new one is just like starting over everytime! :)

It will all come back to you. DS1 is 7, DS2 is 5, DS3 will be 2 in March and DD is due in May. My first 2 were less than 2 years apart and my 2nd and 3rd were 3 1/2 years apart. Things will start to come back to you.

My son and DD1 are 4 years apart. I felt the same! I thought I'd forgotten everything but it all comes back to you.
DD1 and DD2 are 19months apart and I found the 4 year gap soooo much easier!

You will get the hang of it again. I have a very BIG age gape. My oldest will be 20 years old in May, my twins will be 18 in October, Stepdaughter 16 in July, have a daughter who turned one Jan 4th and due July 5th. Almost forgot about my grandson who will be 2 in March. So between my oldest and youngest there will be a 20 year age gap. :D Good luck
