Neither pregnancies were planned exactly. We were just sort of like "if it happens it happens" - on two different nights four years apart. lol.

We didn't quite plan it that way either. When our 1st dd was little it was all we could do to pay for infant daycare. We also said we didn't want two kids in diapers. It took us a while to finally get moved and have a house. It just seemed time moved so fast.

Not planned for sure. Our son was born 14 years ago and I wanted more children right away, but hubby didn't. After giving up on the idea of more kiddos, the good Lord blessed us with Abigail. Now if I can just figure out how to feel as young as I did back then!!

Are gaps between the first one (DS is 3 years old now) and #2 are not planned..it's more we have no choice..were just too financially strapped and I can't afford day care for another baby. So we have to wait 3-4 years till Dh is finally done with school and we can afford to have more of a family. We wanted 4 total but not sure that's gonna happen because age goes against ya.

Nope not really planned out this way. I ended up having a m/c between my oldest and my son. And for my youngest it was sorta planned that way.

Nope not at all. We wanted our first two kids 18-24 months apart and hoped to have 5 or 6 kids altogether. Now we've been TTC #2 for almost a year and DH has been diagnosed with severe male infertility. Our first 2 kids will be AT LEAST 3 years apart, which seems like a HUGE gap to me, but things don't always work out how you want. We hope to have another child by either pregnancy or adoption by the time our son is 3 1/2-4 years old.
