We are expecting our fourth child- and the third and fourth will be 10 months apart. Anyone else in the same boat? We have a 5 year old, 2.5 year old and 4 month old. Hoping to learn from some of you who have a full house like we do/and will!

I do not have any that close but we are expecting #5. I will have 5 children 9 and under.

Mama to 9 so far:Mother of Joey (20), Dominick (13), Abigail (11), Angelo (8), Mylee (6), Delainey (3), Colton (2) and Baby 8 and Baby 9 coming sometime in July 2013.   If evolution were true, mothers would have three arms!

Not exactly 10mnths, my first were 15 and then 12 mnths and we have #4 due in Nov, a few months before my oldest turns 5, so 4 under the age of 5. So far it's not so bad, lots of fun, but time does fly thats for sure.

Yes!!! My first two are ten months apart. They were due to be 11 months, but baby number two arrived at 36 weeks - I was praying at the end that as soon as he would be able to cope on the outside that he'd be born. LOL. The pregnancy was tough going for me because the eldest was a very high needs baby. Anyway, it's blissful to have siblings so close together, but hard work to begin with.

If you have any specific questions please don't hesitate to shout.

Mine are not that close (they are 21 months apart), but one of my best friend's kids are 10 months apart. The kids are teenagers now--a boy and a girl. And let me tell you, the mom was BUSY for those 1st few years! But, the great thing is, those kids truly were and still are best friends! They were always together, which for them was good.

You'll do great. Sure, it will be a very busy time, but what blessing!!
