I don’t usually announce my maternity to the world within the first few weeks, but then, I don’t usually find out I’m pregnant unexpectedly. In the spirit of openness, here are my thoughts on how a third pregnancy can be much different from the first two:
1. “Do you know how it keeps happening?” is fair game now.
A three-child family is not drastically larger than a single or double kid household. But still, become a family of five (assuming your family is a standard two-parent model) and out come the jokes and comments, as if your childbearing/childrearing practices have now reached Duggar-fied proportions.
