Right now I have 4 girls who are spaced 20 months, 19 months, and 29 months apart from each other. The last one is spaced 9 months further than the others because of 2 miscarriages in between. I want to plan on having 1 or 2 more kids. Part of me wants to try to conceive sooner (like when DD4 is 9-12 months old), so I can guarantee she will have a sibling who is closer in age to her. But another part of me wants to wait until she is around 18 or more months to have a 5th, and plan on having a 6th soon after so the last two would be closer in age. I've tried going through the pros and cons of each choice. And the main reason I feel like I would go ahead with doing it sooner, is mostly just because of the spacing thing. I've always wanted to make sure my kids didn't feel like they were being left out or wished they had a sibling closer to them. So what should I do? Will 9 extra months apart make a huge difference?Answer Question

I have 6 kids -- 20, 18, 14, 11, 3 and 22 months! My three stair steps each one has a buddy around same age. I think if i had it to do all over I would have them all closer in age, but still space them out two years apart. I thought having some 18 months apart was hard but 9 months wow good luck to yah.
