  1. My kids are 7 years apart and I’m kinda glad because I don’t know if I can deal with two small ones lol.

    My daughters are 8 years apart and everyone gave me flack for waiting that long. Either way they are best friends. I also was able to enjoy them both at different stages and they were able to have me to themselves at different stages. My 19 yr old talks to her 11 yr old sister when I can’t and vice Versa. When my then 17 yr old called me at work to tell me she had her first argument with her first boyfriend and was crying I couldn’t wait to get home to console her. To my pleasant surprise my then 9 yr old was consoling her and telling her how great she was while they ate ice cream. It was one of my proudest moments. Sisters bonds I’ve heard are unbreakable. I pray that holds true for mine.

  6. At this time I do not have children and as I am getting older I may need to have children close in age or settle on one, as amazing as it has been seeing older mommies having children, being 45 and pregnant does not personally appeal to me

    One & done for me. My son is almost 15 & close to being out the door. I have no idea about these new kids & new disease…hand, foot, & mouth virus never heard of it. One of the main reasons I don’t want to start over is me & my sister are 18yrs apart & not close at all. I would not want that for my son.

  11. I think the closer you have them the siblings will get along better… The further apart them seem not to get along, from what I seen

      I actually wish I could’ve done the same. Ive always wanted four kids and wanted to have them 3 years apart at the most, each. Had my first and only so far at 20 but unfortunately his father and I didn’t work out as a couple (he’s a great father though). He’s 5 now and I just got over a case of baby fever :(. I’m praying that God sends my husband because I am ready to be a wife and mom of more.

    2. mom of three says:

      ME TOOO! Whew! I was scared to answer. I had my three all before 30. I was pregnant from the age of 26 until 30. Don’t regret it at all.

    With my first I was as active was at work till start of my maternity leave at 7months but the labor was something like a horror movie. With my second I just woke up at week 7 and felt like I was hit by a bus,I’ve never been more tired and lazy my whole life the pregnancy ended up being risky so I was bed bound best part is i developed agoraphobia from the moment I everything started going wrong with my pregnancy but we made it to 38 weeks and the labor was so easy..so so easy I almost thought it’s a joke 🙈🙈😂

  17. My kids are 3yrs apart. I needed to make sure our first child was out of diapers. And the hard part for me was losing my weight with my second child.

    I have no children but do want them. I plan on having 2 close together. I will give it 5 or 6 months before I do the bedroom tango again to conceive my second. Doctors recommend waiting 2 years but I’m 31. Do not wish to follow in Halle’s or Nias footsteps.

  19. I have a 10 y.o, 21 month old and 5 month old lol its good to not have to think about starting all over after these two are out of diapers though. I’m glad they are so close together. Its easier then starting all over.

      That’s a great point. I never thought of it that way. I know I want to have at least one more, but the idea of two babies in diapers terrifies me. I am just getting to sleep through the night. But you are the real MVP for knocking it all out at once!

    I have a 7 month old and while still pregnant my family was already telling me that i needed to get pregnant as soon as i give birth. I waited till I was 31 to get married and 32 to have my baby. But no regrets. I was able to live my life then settle down. A few girls i know had kids early and missed out of their youth. I just dont know when im gonna start with baby #2. Baby #1 was an at risk pregnancy so im kinda scared. I wany more but im not sure my body is able to handle it. My and my husbands family are still pushing for #2 and 3 despite the risk tho.

    I just had a baby at the tail end of July…people have ALREADY started asking me about marriage and baby #2, my daughters father has begun asking about trying for a boy next time and I’m like SHEESH! Can I get used to one first, let’s enjoy our princess before creating #2. Its a lot on my body, It’ll be a while, especially since I have an IUD

    All of my best friends that I grew up with had little brothers two years younger, as did I.
    So all of my friends I grew up with are the older sisters to all of the friends my brother grew up with.
    Weird.
