  • Kind of, but who am I to judge? Some people like having kids close together.

  • Well, my kids were born in 06, 08, and this one in Jan of '10. Crazy? Yes. Did I do it on purpose? No. But, I do love them very much and they each are very well taken care of. When they are older, my being pregnant for practically 3 years straight will be worth it.

  • It's hard on your body according to the doctors. But if you have the financial ability to take care of that many kids in college at the same time....

  • Yes. I have three in 33 months. The last two were....um...."surprises" If I had known, I wouldn't have had sex even while on birth control!! UGH.

    It's been tough. There are plenty of good times, don't get me wrong...but my third pregnancy was the only one I had trouble with, causing my second son to not get as much time with me as he should have. (he was 11 months when the last was born)

    I wouldn't want to change THEM, but I do sometimes wish there was at least another year in there somewhere.

  • I just think that it is too much strain on your body. We aren't meant to have babies like other critters.

  • Yes, lol, and I did it. I had 3 kids in 28 months (that's 2 years, 4 months) and all by c-section. That was 3 under 3, all in diapers, etc.
    When my 3rd child was born the older kids were 13 months and 2. It wasn't that bad. Probably would have been easier if I didn't suffer from depression and anxiety. I had a nervous breakdown when the youngest was 4 months old. But we survived. They are 9, almost 8 and almost 7 now and I also have a 3yo. They drive me nuts but for the most part it has been great. They are all best friends and also share friends since they are all the same age.
