I really liked having my boys 2 year apart, I ended up PG 3 months after my first turned 1. But we had been trying for the better part of a year.
I wanted the last one to be as close in age, I did end up pregnant after 14 months of ttc, but miscarried. It then took another 18 months for me to get pregnant, so this time there is 4 years in between kids.
I am so nervous this one - especially if it is boy - will feel left out, Adam and Nate are very close in age, and do most things together, I fear this one will feel like a 3rd wheel.
as far are more kids go, we are done.
I'm sure they will all play together just fine! I wouldn't worry about that one bit!
i have four and they are all about two years apart, which is a good age gap. this one will be three years younger than my last dd. i don't plan on having any more after this, i feel i am about as old as i want to be with little kids... another few years and i'll be pushing 40 and i don't think i could cope energy-wise.
My goal is to have our next child (or be PG) before I'm 30 (I just turned 27 yesterday). Life never quite works out the way you expect. I hadn't expected to marry before age 28 and I was married at 21. After that, I expected I'd have one baby before our 5 year anniversary, but we'll celebrate our 6 year anniversary next month with baby #1 on the way. So we'll see if the "by-30" goal actually happens!
All 4 of my brothers are 2 years apart, but Grant (the youngest) will always be "the baby" of the family!! lol I don't know if there is any way around that!
That's true! How do i explain what i mean.. A baby of the family who is spoiled and treated like a baby longer than necessary.. like my youngest sister was "babied" by all of us older siblings and treated like a baby up until age 4 or 5 in a way that made her more spoiled and she still throws fits at age 11. Not sure this would be the case for everyone, i know a lot is based on how the parents act.
More than anything my decision is based on wanting them evenly spaced so hopefully they play well together but of course i know that doesn't always go according to plan so we'll see
Also i feel so much better hearing that several of you have liked having a gap of 2 years. I've been nervous about how my son will adjust with a baby around and whether it will be really difficult with him still being young. Gives me hope!
