do you think you would have as many kids as you do now if they were far apart in age? i know we certainly would not have two with another one the way. we would have been one and done if we would have waited until much older to have kids. maby its the unknown but i dont think id like having big age gaps in between my kids, i mean it has its hard moments with them close in age but i think it would be even harder to have a baby wait however many years and then start all over again. definitely not for me!

I really don't know, we'd always planned relatively close in age kids so I"m not sure how it would've happened if they would've been spread out. I would've still wanted 3 at least I'd think.

Well, I wanted 6 all along so if I spaced them too far I never would get there, so I just can't think about that, my plan was always to space them 3 years apart though...each one, and well, obviously that didn't happen.

With my older kids being spaced so far apart life just really sucked. My siblings are are also like 5, 9 and 11 years older than me so i knew it sucked. But that wasn't how I planned then it was just how they came.

Any way right now my kids are 21, 15, 10, 3, 10 months and 23 weeks gestation.

I think the driving factor more than spacing is that fact that Dh love and wanted more kids and for some reason my infertility seems to have cleared up.
