    Congratulations, I am so thrilled for you! I am like you and cannot keep the news to myself when pregnant. I think the thing that people say is how much harder it is with 3 little ones, it’s wonderful too but it’s really full on. It hasn’t put me off wanting another though!

    1. Katie Reed says:

      Yah, I have heard that once the parents are outnumbered, it’s a real battle! Lol. Mark is terrified because he thinks we are just perfect now. But I am hopeful that three will be the magic number, and we’ll have a wonderful family. Though Mark has said he’s getting “fixed” as soon as the baby is born. πŸ˜‰

    Congratulations, that’s such exciting news, I’m pregnant with baby number 3 (who is also earlier than expected!) and have no idea what I’m letting myself in for! Good luck with the pregnancy, I don’t go in for the superstition either, I like to have support when/if things go wrong.

    1. Katie Reed says:

      That’s exactly how I feel, too. If something terrible happened (god forbid!), I’d want to have as much support as possible. Plus, I cannot keep a secret at all, so for me, trying to hide it would be too much work! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for the kind words, and congrats on yours, as well. πŸ™‚

    It’s so scary when you have a bleed. I did with my twins and I was sure I had lost the baby. Instead it turned out to be 2!

    1. Katie Reed says:

      Oh man! Lol. I asked Mark what we would do if we had twins. I think we would have to move so we were close to family.

    For me, going from one to two was the hardest. When the third came along, it was no big thing. However, I’m sure you already know this………you will never be on time anywhere again, and if you get used to that now, you’ll save yourself a lot of mental anxiety.

    Congratulations!!!! So very happy for you!

    1. Katie Reed says:

      Thank you! And great advice. Going from one to two was definitely hard so hopefully 2-3 will be ok. Lol

    You mean sex, not gender.

    1. Katie Reed says:

      Huh. You’re right. I looked it up, because I was unsure of the difference between sex and gender. That said, whatever gender role he or she takes on is okay by me, as well.

  6. Kelsi says:

    Congratulations! I just had my first 3 months ago. We also want to have three. I am so happy for you, and I hope everything goes well with your pregnancy.

    1. Katie Reed says:

      Thank you so much. πŸ™‚ The first is always so amazing. Congratulations to you, and all the best! πŸ™‚

  7. Congrats!!!! I miss being preggo but after 6 I think I’m ready to call it quits. I’m ready for the life of no diapers and diaper bags lol

    I would like to congratulate you on your pregancy, but I must take issue with the idea of waiting till the three month mark as a ‘superstition’. I had two miscarriages prior to my current healthy pregnancy. I am not superstitious, in fact, I am a massive skeptic. Even so, I only told my mum and my best friend about every pregnancy as soon as it happened and left most people till the three month mark (for this one).
    It is tough enough to deal with the pain without having to keep telling people about your loss. Not telling straight away gives you the chance to grieve how you may want if the worst happens. It is not a superstition but a pragmatic approach to the reality that there’s a 1 in 5 chance of something going wrong. Please don’t diminish those of us who are not comfortable with grieving in public as superstitious, you are lucky to still have the innocent optimism that people like myself have never been afforded.

    1. Katie Reed says:

      Natalie – thank you for your congratulations. I’m so very sorry for the losses you have experienced, and I would never seek to diminish anyone’s desire to keep their pregnancies to themselves. My comment was meant to express that I don’t believe that telling people early will have any effect on the outcome of a pregnancy. Each woman must make the decision for themselves.

      I feel it is relevant, though, to say that I have, in fact, experienced two previous miscarriages. It is a devastating loss, and I was lucky to have the support I needed at the time. For me, personally, I would struggle to get through it alone.

      I don’t subscribe to the idea of keeping it to myself for a set period of time, but I completely understand those who do.

      Again, I am sorry that I came across inarticulately, and I wish you a very happy and healthy pregnancy.

    Congratulations! I’m not even going to lie, 3 is tough! It’s more difficult to get places, to keep organized, and forget keeping the house picked up. Just don’t sweat the small stuff, enjoy the time you can with them while they are little, and make time with each of them individually as often as you can. Don’t be surprised when the 3rd skips all the baby stuff and goes straight to whatever the next kid in line is doing/playing with!

  10. I decided to go back and read all your pregnancy posts! Congrats again πŸ™‚
    I found going from 2 to 3 kids a lot easier than 1 to 2. You will be fine!
