I was just wondering if you noticed a huge change (obviously there is the typical changes in a family when a new member is added) in going from 3 to 4.  I'm expecting our 4th and Im super nervous that we are in for it haha I had my babies semi close together I suppose. My eldest daughter is 6 (7 in Nov), my next daughter is 4 (5 in Oct) and my son will be 1 May 8th! This babies due date is Dec 16th. I guess any advice or confidence boosters is what I'm looking for haha Thanks Mama's!!!

My older three are all just under two years apart. My 4th is four years younger than my third. The big kids were great inviting Ds into the family. In some ways I wish I had spread them all out more because it was an easy adjustment for them. But it was really hard to go from 'independent ' back to the baby stage. My baby is almost one and I still forget the diaper bag half the time. 
Itf seems scary but it is ok. Us humans are amazing how we adapt and rise to our environment.

It was really easier to go from 3-4 than it was to go from 2-3. I really love my little boys age differences only 28 months a part. They are really close. Of course they fight, but they are best friends too.

This is good to hear! My baby is only 2m so i dont think our 4th will be for awhile yet but 2-3 has been crazy so i hope 3-4 isnt as crazy for us!

Only a few days into 4 here, but so far its not so bad. The older three are all just under 2 years apart, 3 and 4 are 19 months apart. My oldest is having the hardest time adjusting out of all of them, but its not too bad

Mine are 5, 4, 3, and 1. 

Going from 3 to 4 was nothing.... Im convinced that once you get to 3, it really doesnt matter how many you have. Lol.  I guess ill see in November.

Mine are very similar age gaps to yours....the baby will be 7months tomorrow. The hardest part for me is getting them all in/out of the car safety in parking lots....that is hard by myself...

Not too crazy but I think that the ages and how busy your life is can make a difference. When I had my 3rd my oldest was almost 5 and middle was 3. They didn't really have any activities or school. I had my 4th in January and my oldest is 9, then 8 then 4. The older 3 are all in school and gymnastics and one is in guitar. My oldest does all kinds of sports year round there are school things always going on. My life is super busy! And having the baby can sometimes make it harder but she is a great baby, I really couldn't have asked for a better baby. When I have them all by myself it can be hectic I wouldn't try to grocery shop with all 4 by myself. But it really isn't too bad.

Thanks for all the input ladies!!
I was really nervous I guess after every new baby, going from 0-1,1-2, 2-3 and I didn't loose my mind haha!!
I guess its just getting into a new routine and your right my family will adapt. I know my eldest two will be super helpers (they were little mommy's to their baby brother since day 1) and will with this baby too.
We did a gender reveal with my first 3 and I'm wondering if any of you made the last one a surprise?? I'm debating on what we are going to do. My husband usually wants to find out but this time he surprised me and said he's fine with this one being a surprise.

I had my fourth be a surprise after finding out with my first 3. It wasnt hard for me, and i had quite a few u/s that i couldve found out, but i had no urge to. It wasnt until the last week of my pregnancy when i had a really vivid dream that i had the baby and it was a boy that i started getting impatient. It was so vivid that i woke up wondering where my baby was, i think that is why i got so impatient lol.

Actually yes found out with the first 3 and didn't with our last. I didn't like the idea at first but ended up really loving it. If we had another I'm not sure I would do it again though lol.
