I know I've got about 4 years before we can TTC again and I know there will be a lot of times I won't want to wait. If you planned to space your kids, how did you fight the baby fever when it would creep up?

this age gap was not planed on my part. I was 16 when I had DD and married my husband (who is not her biological DNA match) when I was 19. Well DH is in the military and he wanted us to wait to have more until he would have the best chance of being home for the pregnancy, birth and the 1st year so the baby would know him. He had too many friends from the last command that would deploy leaving a very pregnant wife at home to return to a 4 or 5 month old infant who was scared of the strange man in the house

We had our first daughter right out of high school and then had too much going on trying to build our life with work and school, so we didn't have our second daughter until almost 11 years later. I will say that after the first year or two, baby fever starts to fade for me. By the time my second daughter was 3, I lost most of my desire for a third child because I enjoyed sleeping through the night, etc. It wasn't until last year when my clock started ticking that we re-evaluated the possibility of having #3, and here we are. Our daughters will be 19 and 8 when this one is born.
