DD1 is just under 2 years older than DD2 but will be almost exactly 4 years older than #3, so we have them all spaced about 2 years apart. I wanted the close spacing.
We have a lot of friends with 3 kids. And my brother has 2 even though he still wants a girl, but they have waited too long and are too far out of the "baby phase" and going back to it would be too drastic a lifestyle change for their family.
Some of our friends that have had a rough transition were the ones whose kids are older. Yes, the older kids can help, but going back to sleepless nights was more difficult than they anticipated. Still, nobody regrets it.
Many of our friends say 0 to 1 or 1 to 2 were more challenging than going from 2 to 3.
I'm sure it's different for everyone but the majority that we know lean towards the "been there, got this" you mentioned.
For me personally, my third is when I really just settled into being a Mom. I accepted that mom activities were going to consume most of my free time, and time in general. I also had to be OK with the house not always being how I wanted, etc. Hard to explain, but it really made me more laid back & go with the flow.
I see it as a season of life, and I already see how quickly it's passing, so I'm just trying to soak up this stage of life

With our third, we decided I would stay home which is really hard work and has its challenges too. But all in all I think babies are blessings and we are happy with our family.
It is kind of funny when I'm out and about with all three tho. I always have some people who look at me like I'm out of my mind. Lol.
