All of you moms with 3 kids... What is it like going from 2 o 3? Huge changes? Tell me all the horrible things...... I need to reality check of what I might be getting myself into :)

IMO the transition from 2 to 3+ (in my case from 2 to 4) was easier than the transition from 1 to 2. Good luck.

It was not bad, but my two oldest are five and six and they love to help with the baby. I'd say its harder than having your first, but easier than going from one to two

My older two were 3 and 4. The problem I had was with my 3yr old DD trying to pick up the babies. :/
She called herself the "little momma" :)

Well I would have a 4 and 2 year old at the time if I get pregnant in the next few months. Right now I have a 13 month and a 3 year old

It was much easier for me going from two to three . My oldest was just days shy of turning four and my second was 27 months. The older two were old enough to entertain themselves while I took care of the baby plus they understood what was going on. I'm dreading going from three to four since my youngest is still very young and a mammas boy. He's not going to understand what's going on.
