I'm pg with #3, dd will be 7 and ds will be almost 2 1/2 when this babe is born. I gotta say I really enjoyed the 5 year age difference between dd and ds because dd was old enough to understand that sometimes babies need more attention and time. Plus she was old enough to get her own snacks, use the bathroom alone, and things like that. Also she was in school half the day so I had a lot of alone/bonding time with ds as a newborn, just like she had got. This time it's going to be a lot different, but I'm looking forward to having two close in age for various reasons too.

This is #4 for us.

When babe is born my other dc will be:

ds1 - 7
ds2 - 5
dd1 - 2 but 1 month away from 3

Thanks goodness my youngest is a DIY type and is also very verbal. I think the 3 year age gap will be easier than the 24-26 month one. I have also been very lucky because I have never had 2 in dipes at the same time! Whew!

Ah, the joys of subfertility:

There are 9 years between my 9 years between my DS and DD1. There is almost 17 months between DD1 and DD2

DD2 will be almost 6 when this baby is born.

So, DS will be around 17 (the baby could actually be born on his birthday)
DD1 will be 7
DD2 will be almost 6

DSD1 will be 7 (hopefully! her bday is 1/19)
DSD2 will still be 4 (she had just turned 4 when DD was born)
DD will (theoretically) be 10 months.

All of these ages are assuming I make it to term. If I go as early as I did last time (meaning if I have this baby in 16 weeks!!!!!) DSD1 will be 6, DSD2 will be 4 and DD will be about 8 months. :

I have two kiddos...

DS will be 9.4 when this one is born and DD will be 3.8. I like bigger gaps in age because I am not too good with handling two little ones at once!
