Will you kids be????

I feel like I just got off a due date board! Katie and this babe will be 15 and 1/2 months apart

I have done it before, Colin and Cass are 13.5 months, maybe thats why I'm not quite so thrilled. I know they will play together so well though. Just gotta survive the pregnancy! Am I having the closest spacing???

My ds will turn 3 years old approx. 3-4 weeks after this babe is born so they will be 3 years apart. I was worried that they will be too far apart to play together, but hey, I don't really have a choice now do I????LOL!!!! I'm liking the spacing much more now and I think ds will be ready to share his mama more at 3. Time will tell!

Mine will be 8 & 3/4 years apart. Not the original plan, but it takes a long time to find a good guy DD is very excited to finally become a big sister. She even wants a brother. I've spent years watching her "mother" everyone else's babes and telling her "this is what its going to be like when we get a baby." They can apparently destroy her stuff all they want

Mom to three 14 y.o. rock star grrl, 5 y.o. knight in spazzy armour and baby Juniper, born still @39 weeks 4 days 2-3-10 .

Assuming this one isn't as early as DD was, they will be 3 years 3 months apart. I feel like that is just about right for our family. My sister and i were 4 years 3 months, and I thought that was a little too far.

Gareth will be 3 &1/2 years old when baby is born. We planned them that far apart. I think it will be easier on Gareth because he is so independant now.

My kids are 19 months apart, and I had them during midwifery school and my placements. But weesej, you have 3 and another on its way, and you are an apprentice! How do you do it? (It feels like even having time to conceive would be a challenge to me!)
