I waited 4.5 between my first 2. My firstborn was a handful :joy:

My son is 2 years 1 month and we’re 11 weeks pregnant

I was six months postpartum when I found out I was pregnant again. Due in three weeks and there will be 15 months between my girls.

I believe when I saw my first born in my arms my response was “I want another” waited till his first birthday and tried

3 years , then 11 years :woman_facepalming:

Lmao I like to say my 2nd chose us because of our lack of thinking :joy: she was born 2wks after my first turned one. I was ebf and had no periods and it happened. Never did that again. Now my others are about 2yrs in between

I’m 26 weeks pregnant with my 2nd now my 1st is 15. I was 17 when I had her. Had to wait on Gods timing not mine for this sweet miracle.

My son will be 3 end of September and I’m due another boy in 11 days :heart::blue_heart:

I wasnt planning on having a second but got pregnant with surprise baby when my eldest was 2.5. I was wanting to wait til she was 5, but honestly this age gap is perfect imo

When the pregnancy test told me i was…

5 years lol. Son just turned 5 and im due in 3 weeks. Lol

My boys are 20 months to the day apart…

6mons. Our kids are 1yr 3mons apart!!

6 years but not by choice

My daughter is 5 and my son is almost a year old. We said once she was potty trained we would try for another

I have a 5 and 3 yr old

8 years between number 1 and 2
10 months between number 2 and 3
The smaller age gap was actually easier!

2 years
Still haven’t decided.

Not long. They start walking we start trying. Lol.
