Hi all...I just joined the board and I have a question. I have two children that are only 15 months apart. My DH would like another (or two) child and I am considering it. But the idea of starting over with all of the things that come with an infant is freaking me out a little bit (okay more than a little). My son would be over 3 1/2 if I were to immediately get pregnant this month and my daughter would be almost 5.

How was it to go back to land of baby? Was anyone else freaking out? I thought that I was done. I told everyone including my husband that I was done. Now maybe I'm not done. Advice, feedback, opinions, your experiences, and suggestions welcomed and encouraged!

Many thanks in advance.

My youngest was 10 when I had my 4th. My older two were 16 and 13. Needless to say that it was like the 1st pregnancy all over again for me, but I wouldn't change it for anything!!! I am so in love with all of them that I couldn't imagine it any other way!!

Hope that helps,

With my last pregnancy my eldest daughter was 16 and my youngest 8 (also had a 13 year old)

It was like starting over but so great because I could share the pregnancy with the girls.They loved it and are so close with their baby brother now.Larger age gaps are a fab thing in my opinion
