Being a Mother of Three Causes the Most Stress

Survey Says Being a Mother of Three Causing the Most Stress for Mothers

If you’re a mother of three you probably can relate that “three” is the magic word for stress. New celeb parents of three Prince William and Kate Middleton along with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West joined the three kid club this year and probably found out pretty quickly their stress level jumped a great deal.

But the question is why? Why are three children any more stressful for mothers than two or say four?

Today Parents conducted a survey of more than 7000 U.S. mothers in 2013 and the results came back that mothers of three are far more stressed than mothers of one and two while mothers of four or more stress levels are actually lower. Some refer to it as the Duggar effect when you reach a certain amount of kids mothers are forced to not micromanage as much and their stress levels actually decrease.

The big question is what is stressing mothers out so much? Besides raising kind and well-rounded children mothers are often stressed about money, balancing home life with work life and their husbands. A lot of women feel like their husband is like having another child in the house but just bigger.

But the big underlying stress for mothers comes within. 75 percent of mothers in the survey say they are their hardest critic and put massive amounts of pressure on themselves. Mothers today are striving for perfection driven from judgment they get from other mothers.

“Scary Mommy” creator and author of “Motherhood Comes Naturally (And Other Vicious Lies)” Jill Smokler has three kids herself and agrees it’s the most stressful number.

“Going from one to two was an easy, breezy transition. Two to three, everything was turned upside down. I did not feel like I had it together…just crossing the street and not being able to physically hold all their hands I found tremendously stressful.”

Mothers today are putting their kids before themselves more than ever. Forget your favorite hobby before you had kids or that book you used to read before going to bed. Now you’re reading your children’s favorite pick and you’re lucky if you even got a daily shower in.

Dr. Janet Taylor a psychiatrist in New York says mom stress is something she hears about daily in her practice. Taylor is a mother of four and agrees with the survey

‘Teen Mom OG’: Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra Reveal Baby’s Gender

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra of Teen Mom OG just shared the sex of their new baby. It turns out that the couple is expecting another girl! They are really excited about this news, but honestly, they were expecting to hear that it was a boy. They have already had two little girls. 

Catelynn shared with Us Weekly all about her shock to find out it was another girl.

“I was so shocked that it was a girl because I for sure thought it was a boy! Tyler knew the sex before I did. When we did our gender reveal, I was so shocked I almost cried because I wanted a boy so badly. I’m super excited it’s a girl now. Since our miscarriage, I just am thankful to get another chance, and as long as it’s healthy, that’s all that matters!”

The couple has already talked about trying for another baby in the future. This might mean they would end up getting a boy. Catelynn and Tyler seem like they are doing really well right now. They love being parents. 

Catelynn Lowell went on to explain that they do really want to have a boy at some point. Tyler may end up in a house full of girls and that will be just fine, too. This is the third daughter for this couple. They have 3-year-old daughter Nova and they placed their eldest daughter, Carly, now 9, up for adoption.

Catelyn suffered from a miscarriage between Nova and the new little girl that is on the way. This was really hard on her. They are calling their new little girl their “rainbow baby.” This is a term used for a baby that is born after a miscarriage. They actually were not planning this pregnancy, but it just happened. The couple is excited about the new baby, though.

Tyler really feels like this is a “blessing.” He says that every child is and he is really happy about this new child. It won’t be long before they have another little girl at home. The couple from Teen Mom OG hasn’t shared just yet what they will name their daughter. They will probably wait to reveal this until the little girl arrives. 

Are you excited to see Catelynn Lowell’s new little girl? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t miss new episodes of Teen Mom OG on MTV. Hopefully, everything will be filmed when she has their new daughter.

Owen Wilson is a Father For the Third Time

Owen Wilson welcomed his third child, a baby girl, with Varunie Vongsvirates. A source close to The Wedding Crashers star revealed his daughter arrived on Tuesday, October 9th weighing in at 6 lbs., 13oz., measuring 21 inches. The parents named their daughter Lyla Aranya Wilson, Vongsvirates choosing a Thai moniker for her little girl’s middle name in honor of her father’s Thai heritage.

Wilson is already a dad to his two boys 7-year-old Robert Ford whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Jade Duell and his 4-year-old son Finn Wilson whom he shares with Caroline Lindqvist.

The paternity of Wilson’s third child was questioned resulting in the Marley and Me star, 49, volunteering to go ahead with a paternity test in June. Vongsvirates maintained her certainty that Wilson was the father of her unborn child.

A source close to the actor said of the paternity incident, “Owen has been a great father to his two boys and has maintained a warm and close relationship with their mothers. Of course, if a paternity test establishes that he is the father of another child, he will fulfill all of his obligations to support his child.”
