I'm not planning more kids after Grant is born because of recurrent loss/high risk/infertility, but I float around because I'm 13 years older than my youngest two siblings

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

Name: Emma
Children's Name: Gabrielle & Emersyn
Ages of Children: 3y3m & 22w pregnant (will be 3 3/4 years age gap)
Did you plan to have your children widely spaced? Ideally I didn't want to.. but it's the way it happened
Benefits of having widely spaced children? I know I don't have a huge gap, but I like that Gaby will be able to help out a bit, and I also like that Gaby is at the age that she'll probably remember bits & pieces of having Emersyn being a baby... and that she'll remember the early years of Emersyn's life

Children's Names: Elliot James & Jelly Bean
Ages of Children: 7 & 14 weeks gestation
Did you plan to have your children widely spaced? Yes and no. I wouldn't have chosen to have children 8 years apart but we were very young when we had Elliot and wanted to be more established financially and emotionally for #2. Then it took over a year to get pg with #2!
Benefits of having widely spaced children? #2 isn't born yet so I don't know for sure but I think a benefit will be that Elliot is quite independent and able to understand that newborns demand time. Also he'll be able to help and will hopefully have good memories of his sibling's babyhood. I know that's how it worked out with my littlest sister and me!

Name: Kathie
Children's Name: Mia and baby boy (for now)
Ages of Children: Mia is 8 and I'm 26 weeks pregnant
Did you plan to have your children widely spaced? Not at all. It's a result of secondary infertility.
Benefits of having widely spaced children? I hope there are lots! I'm actually a bit worried about it. I think being able to give each child lots of individual attention is a plus...
