I hope the sickness remains manageable. I can’t remember when the hormones peak but you’ll still be on the rise so I imagine it may get worse before it gets better.

I agree with Leap, it’s lovely not feeling like you have to learn on the job. Also just generally feeling more relaxed, because you’ve already kept a child alive and mostly unscathed. I can’t comment personally on two to three, but I reckon another after twins will be a breeze by comparison.

I hope the sickness gets under control quickly Ken. And subsequent babies are definitely a lot easier, especially after twins. Massive congratulations to you.

Oh Ken, I really hope the sickness doesn't get any worse.

It will definitely all come back to you and you'll feel much more confident this time.

Obviously I don’t have my first two at the same time, but my third really was a breeze!

You are already in a good routine with the other two, and they just sort of slot into it, they have to really. Practically raise themselves. :lol:

Me too with my third (and fourth). Congrats, Ken! I hope the sickness eases and that GP Thinks On.

I don't agree that the jump from two to three is a small one, but would argue that it definitely applies when 1 and 2 are simultaneous!

Congrats Ken!

I found the jump from 2-3 fine, probably due to the large age gap. But 3-4 is HARD.

I found 0-1 by far the hardest, then it was much easier (and I find it fascinating to see when each individual parent finds it hard, it varies so much!).

After having 1 and 2 so close together, I found no.3 a breeze 4.5 years later. Not least because there is none of that first-time-mum stress. And you were a first and srcond-time mum at once!

This is all music to my ears. :love: 0-2 was definitely pretty tough. :lol:
