My son was only 8 months old when I found out I was having another one! He is now 1 and I am 5 months pregnant. They will be 17 months apart. I am the only one who has kids this close?! Everytime I see a woman with a young child and pregnant I always say "whoo, thank goodness other people do it too!"

My sons are 17 1/2 months apart and I'm 27 weeks pregnant with my 3rs son, who will also be 17 1/2 months apart. It's incredibly hard work, but so worth it. The 2 I currently have are very good friends and play together well (most of the time). I bet you will love being a mum to two so close together!

I am 25 years old all 4 my kids are a year apart but my last 2 they are 10 months apart. 1,2,3,and 4. The 1 and 2 year old are the same age for 2 months before my 2 year old turns the next age. I am also expecting another one any day now. I think the same thing also when I see other woman with little ones that close I know then I am not the only one.

I'm so glad i just came across this! I have a 15 year old daughter, a 10 month old daughter and we've just discovered that we have another one on the way in around 8 months time. People are telling me i must be crazy and that i'll be driven round the bend but i am so happy to be blessed with another and am confident that after bringing up my eldest on my own that i'll cope ok.....im sure there will be tough days but who doesn't have days like those ~ no matter how many you have!

Mine are 30 months apart, but my sister has four (and one more on the way) in six years. Her eldest just turned six a couple months ago, and she's expecting her sixth in a few weeks.

Mine are 26mo between #1 and #2, and 22 mo between #2 and #3. So 3 kids within 4 years and 3weeks.
I've been pregnant and/or nursing since July 2006, non stop. I'm kinda proud of that :)

I know a couple of moms with "Irish twins" (babies that were not born at the same time, but were both born in the same year). January and December for them all! It's tough sometimes, but when they get a bit older is much easier for social skills and playmates!! No worries, every family is different, it's the love and care we give them that matters!!

Well my daughter and our boys are 22 months apart from their births. Then with the younger 5 it gets a little tricky. The boys were born the 21 Dec and i'm due 16 Apr. So the twins and the triplets are 25 weeks apart. Yes, its very odd, i know.

I have 3 boys. 5, almost 3 and 1. Exactly my oldest and middle are 2 yrs 7 months and my middle and youngest are 19 months apart. Its a lot of diaper changing.

I had my oldest fully potty trained during they day at 18 months so if you want your youngest out of diapers I would start now. No he won't know when he has to potty and will have a lot of wet undies but it almost like you program them to do it. Seems cruel but I started my oldest at 11 months but if you start now by the time the baby comes it won't be a big deal. Just make it fun and it will happen.

This is just some advice from a mom to a mom.

Ppl make comments all the time about my younger ones being close in age but its my choice not theirs. Opions are just like a$$holes everybody has one! Lol.

Good luck and congrats new momma!!!

hi. my girls are 19 months apart and they fight like cats and dogs ALL DAY EVERY DAY!!! my oldest girl told the nurse to take the baby when we were leaving the hospital. she didnt want her then and she claims she doesnt want her now. they are currently 9 & 11. the younger will be 10 in october. the oldest one will not show love towards the little one even though she worships the ground the older one walks on. its funny bc when they fight i make them hug and say i love you. goodness gracious marrie, the older one is like fainting and dying when she has to do this but eventually she gives in. its too funny to watch. the lil one always has her sisters back and will do anything she asks. the older one will do certain things and at times will suprisingly show love towards her sister. i remind them all the time that they only have each other and they need to show respect and treat each other the way they want to be treated. its a work in progress but i dont think the older one will ever truly see the light. to this day she will say, i was never a baby thats why i dont like her. i tell her you really need to work those feelings out bc its too late to send her packing. then i ask her or would you like to leave? then the older one looks at me in disgust and walks away. i do the best i can, i just pray that God will show them how important they are to each other and that w/o one another they'd be lost. which they are when seperated.

I waited a little longer. My son is 3 years old (will be 4 next month) and my daughter is 8 months, almost 9. I am so happy with the age gap but I am ready for another one. We're kind of trying. You know, if it happens, it happens. :)

My son will be 5 this year on 9/11 and my daughter just turned 1 on 7/08...I think I am the only one of my friends and close family who have kids this far apart in age. I did feel awkward and like an outcast before having my daughter because everyone else was pregnant with babies number 2 and 3 (before I even got pregnant with my daughter) and I was all alone with one child.

My first two are 15 months apart. Then there's 2 y 5 m to #3. Mine are all grown up now (the "baby" is 18). It's been a hectic ride, especially at the start, but it sure was fun! Even having 3 teens was fun.

I have had five children in 7 years! My first two were thirteen months apart, and it seems like I was pregnant or breast feeding ever since (my youngest is now 4; turning 5 next month). I think it is great to have your kids close together, because then they grow up together and learn from each other. Since my first one (who is now 12), the others (excluding my second, who died when she was 4 months old) have all been very fast learners, have potty trained early, and have been very independent. My 4 year old knows his entire alphabet, recognizes most letters, can count over 30, is starting to write his name, and can work a computer like nobody's business! To make life a little easier, and a little less expensive, we worked hard to potty train one child by the time the next was born (the last 3 are each 2 years apart) so that we never had more than one child in diapers at a time. So far, I've been very lucky! My kids, for the most part, are great friends, are all extremely smart and well behaved (at least when they are away from home, lol), and are just all in all great kids! I'm the luckiest mom in the world, and I wouldn't change anything...except not losing my baby girl Anna.
