Adelyn was a total surprise. We stopped preventing when she was 10 months old and and got pg that month. I love the age gap but I don't know if I could handle 3 this close in age. I'm not sure I could handle three at all lol

NTNP....When our first was 8 months old, we found out that we were 2 months pregnant. :-) I took Depo after our second for a year and then went off of it when our second turned 1. It only officially wore off in Dec and AF returned. We were pregnant in January. We are very fertile together :-)

NTNP - as of now we are going this route for them all. Breastfeeding I believe helped space it somewhat.

Well I am breastfeeding our daughter, and hormonal bc affected my supply so I told SO that he was in charge of the condoms.... So baby #2 is a surprise. We were planning on going to NTNP in January and actually trying to conceive in July when Daughter is 1.5 years.

#1 was planned
NTNP with #2
but I was secretly hoping for 2 little ones close in age.
I was an only child and hated it. I never wanted to have a child feel as alone as I did. That's never going to happen to my kids now.
