Hi - Kaydi was born 19 June 2007 - and her little sister Tyla was born on Wednesday (16 Sept). She loves her sister but is being very emotional. She just needs reassurance that she is loved. I think a + - 2 year gap is perfect!!!

My kids are 12 months apart, Lacey was born June 2008 and its great having them close together, i am pregnant again due April 2010 so lacey and the new baby will be 22 months apart
hey, I just noticed your post and I have almost exactly the same situation with my children... My eldest is 26 months and then my youngest is 16 months (the gap was should have been a year but our second was prem) and we now have our 3rd on the way and she's due in january. I haven't met anyone else who is expecting 3 under 3's so thought I'd say hi! :)

Hey... I actually have my 3rd on the way!! my eldest is 26 months and my youngest is 16 months.... we had a 9 month and 3 week gap between ours. it was meant to be just over a year but our second was 11 weeks early. It was the best thing we ever did for them as they are the best of friends! I have two boys already and we've just found out that our third is a girl. I will have 3 under 3's!! It is hard work but I wouldn't change a thing now as they are such brilliant company for one another. they chat all the time, and play, and even 'play fight' already! and thats normally instigated by the youngest! haha. they do have there moments where they both want the same toy or the usual sibling bickering but we've never had a trouble with them going to bed or anything because they've always had each other. Leo is definately a doting big brother too, he really looks after his little brother, it's very cute!!
I've heard about that theory but alot of it is just that. lookat the pattern of children on the males side as it is him who determines the sex of the baby... my husbands family has always gone 2 boys then a girl and thats exactly the same for us. If you do get a boy though I can assure you that they will bring you alot of laughs as a little duo!! :)
take care, cassana

My second child is now 5 1/2 months old and is a little girl called Ffion, I recommend a website called Mycycle if your trying to conceive as it worked a treat for me by tracking my cycle and ovulation days, as my cycle is short it helped no end.
My kids are 22 months and 10 days apart. I was scared to death at first, but now, LOVE IT! We have had little jealousy issues and my daughter LOVES her little brother. She is very motherly and I couldn't have unexpectedly planned it better. (He was a big surprise) We originally were going to try when she turned 2; well, he came about 2 months before she turned 2. Wouldn't change it for the world! Good Luck!! (& I'd go for it!)

My husband and I also recently started trying for another baby. We have 2 boys right now and are also hoping for a girl! I've also heard about trying to have sex earlier in your ovulation cylce helping your odds for a girl. I've never head of the shettles method...what is it? Good luck!!!
My husband and I are currently trying to get pregnant. We have been trying for about five months now and so far its a no. I had the Mirena IUD (Worst decision EVER!!) and had that removed about a year ago. We have two kids, a girl and a boy. I think a good two to three year gap is a good idea. Gives your body time to heal and you also get a little helper instead of another midnight wake up. I have not heard of the Shettles method. I wish you luck and hope you get a beautiful healthy baby. And if it doesn't happen right away..remember making babies is the funnest work you'll ever do :P

I just had my 2nd after having my daughter June 2007. My 2nd was born in June 2009(a boy). They are 2 years and 5 days apart. Also if you are having trouble conceiving have your hubby take ginsing. We had tried for our daughter for 2 years and then my husband had started taking ginsing and we conceived within a couple of months. Also God had a BIG part in it too.

We're thinking about trying for number2 also and I too want a girl. I don't know if this is the shettles method but I have read/heard that if you track your ovulation and try to conceive before or right at the begining of your main ovulation period then you have a better chance of having a girl because girl sperm survives longer than boy sperm and will survive until it is time to implant while the male sperm will die off. I think the best thing to do is to track your ovulation for a month or two so you get a good idea of when you ovulate, and then when you're ready, try to conceive very early in your cycle and then not again until you find out if your prego or not. I don't know how accurate this is and it could be frustrating since you might have to wait from month to month to "perfect" it, but if you really want a girl it might be worth a shot. Good luck!
