2 years? 2.5 years? 3 years? Or more?It’s a little terrifying to think that I already have to plan out kid #2!! (insert eeeek face) But you just do! Especially if you want them gapped a certain age! Growing up me and my siblings are spaced 2 year apart and there is 5 of us! I always told myself I wanted to have my kids spaced 2 years apart too since I loved being close to age with my siblings!
But here we are, Edison is 14 months and that would mean I would need to get pregnant next month.. NEXT MONTH you guys!!
I’m in no way ready for that!
However, my husband feels that he is getting old (turning 33) and wants to keep our kids close in age without him being such an old dad. Which I totally understand since we potentially want to have 4 kids! Yep, a big family sounds like so much fun to us!! So, we most likely will get pregnant sometimes this year.
I think I would be happy with 2.5 years apart. Maybe 3, but I don’t think my husband would love that. He is ready now!!
Of course I have to consider the chances of infertility issues, which is so common these days, sadly. I would hate for that to happen to us and we have to wait 4 or more years for our second child. But considering we got pregnant on our first month trying with Edison, I have a feeling we are one of the lucky few who don’t have to undergo fertility testaments. I honestly feel for you mamas out there!!!!
So let me know, what is the most ideal age gap between your kids?
What was your favorite age gap with you and your siblings?
And lastly, is having 2 kids under 3 hard at the beginning and easy as they grow older?
Let me hear it all!!
Thanks for your advice mamas, I really appreciate it!!
