  • Why wouldn't it be? A lot of women get pregnant when they have 2 year olds. I got pregnant 2 months after my first DS turned 2. I like the age gap.

  • Err.. why would it be bad.. .is what that should read.

  • No. Will your daughter be three by the time the baby is born? That's not a bad age gap.

  • Only bad if you cannot handle the added responsibility. Otherwise, not bad at all.

  • Bad is irrelevant at this point if you're already pregnant. That's something you should have evaluated before you had unprotected sex.

  • That was actually the age gap that we had hoped for, but we never got around to having another one. So I don't think there's anything wrong with it!

  • My mother had 3 children in a 30 month time period. We are all 15 months apart. I don't see anything wrong with that.
