Just found out that I am pregnant with my 3rd and I am quietly freaking out. This pregnancy wasn’t quite planned so I’m in shock. Worried about so many things and also with everything going on because of Covid19.
Any advice for 3rd time around? I want to feel happy about this sooner rather than later.

  • Maybe tell your friends and family sooner so they can get excited for you

  • wow what a blessing, I found the third so much easier to fit into the family, by this time they will just fit in. The first one I was so busy and worried, the second I had trouble finding time to do everything and the third was so easy, it was no extra work and she just went with the flow and fitted in. Good luck

  • Congratulations it is going to get busy enjoy this time yes it is stressful so look after yourself, and you have plenty of time to enjoy the joy of children and bond with your 2 that you have all the best

  • I have 4 kids (all 5 years and under) and to be honest the 3rd just fit right in. A few other mums have also said going from 2 kids to 3 was easy. Try to relax and enjoy the pregnancy. In regards to covid 19, just follow the recommendations and try not to worry. I know it can feel scary but there will be an end so just focus on staying safe and enjoying the pregnancy.

  • I agree, try not to worry too much. Stay at home like all of us and let husband do the shopping’s. Talk with your Gp about your concerns re Covid19

  • I found going from two kids to three kids much easier than going from one to two. I hope that thought helps you!

  • I have a pregnant sister at the moment she is self isolating with family only hubby goes to supermarkets to buy essentials
    Try not to worry if u go to Dr appointments just wear gloves and a mask .Good luck.

  • Any baby is a joy to be looked forward too. Covid19 won’t affect you it too much. Just be careful and only go to must do appointments

  • Can’t help as i have only 2 kids but wishing u all the best. Try not to stress about convid19 and fallow all precarious.

  • All I can suggest is to follow instructions continuously announced.
    Try to self isolate yourself and your family as much as possible, especially if you or other members of your family have a low immunity problem at all. I suggest you talk to your GP or other medical professional. Flu injections are now available now. If you haven’t already had one I suggest you ask about that too. If you have to do your own shopping or go out in public at all maybe see if you can get a mask to wear.
