Re: adding in another child -- just some thought-provoking questions

My most difficult transition was 0 to 1. I was taken by surprise because I thought that as the oldest of 5 I more prepared than your average bear. I had PPD which made it difficult and then realizing that most of my life I was just a helper and that I wan't justing helping anymore was a big adjustment. Also, I found out I was pregnant with ds the day after I finished Grad School and going from constant feedback and easy to finish tasks that STAYED finished to nothing ever getting done or staying done was tough. The PPD was the main culprit though. That was hell and it went untreated because part of my illness was to go into Super Mom mode and hide it. Of course, I'm still waiting to find out what the transition from 3 to 4 will be like so I might have to repost in October!
