** Just what is on my mind currently ** a what would you do question.

Would you say there is a perfect age gap? which gap is perfect to you? why?

If you were TTC and didn't fall pregnant right away and it would mean creating a bigger age gap would you continue to try? would the bigger age gap bother you?

Around 18 months is perfect for us. The girls are 21 months and that was due to not getting PG for a few months after TTC, and then the other 2 age gaps are 17 months.

If I had an age gap over 2 years, I'd have a hard time with it, which DH thinks is hysterical. To me, and having smaller age gaps now, over 2 years seems like a huge age gap. But if I knew I wanted another child I'd definitely keep trying. Though to be honest, if the gap was reaching 2.5 years, I'd likely want another kid after as well, so the 2.5 year apart kid wouldn't feel so far in age to the others..... But like I said, just me, I know it's crazy-talk for most!!
