Do you have children close together in age? (help!)

I think I may be pregnant. My son is 13 months old so I am freaking out right now!! I wanted them to be 2+ years apart. So maybe its not that bad? My family believes that they should be years apart like 5+. I just need some support right now I guess.
You can email me at too! thanks ladies!!

btw my hubby is like o well mode right now. I took a test 2 weeks ago that said negative so my dh said wait 2 more weeks and try again. I am 3 weeks late so far!

  • My son is 22 month and my daughter is 2 month . It not that bad. For me I like it like this because they get to play with each other.

  • My youngest 2 are 18 months apart- 1 boy & 1 girl. They are best friends, play well together and love each other very much! There where some hard things about having them close- like I was bfing and potty training at the same time etc. But I feel the benefits outweigh the negatives for our family! They are now almost 3 and 4 1/2 and I'm expecting again..Now I'm hoping that the larger spacing (3yrs) works for our family as well as the close spacing does : )

  • Take a deep breath. If it does turn out that you are pregnant, then you can start thinking about all the positive things about having them close. At first you may feel like you are pretending to be excited, but excitement is contagious and soon everyone will be excited too.

  • My youngest are 11 months apart. While it was difficult while they were both in diapers, I must say that was the hardest part....well, all the way up until now, the teenage years. LOL

    You hang in there Mama.....all will be well!
