How far apart in age are your children?

I have a 5 month old son and I may be pregnant again. So I was wondering if its common to have children so close to together in age.

  • There is 15 months between #1 and #2
    13 months between #2 and #3
    and 3 1/2 years between #3 and #4.

    I had 3 kids under 3 at one time. The oldest was only 2 years and 4 months old when my 3rd child was born. They are 9, 8, 7 (on Sunday) and 3 1/2.

  • My children are 5, 3 1/2, 2, and 7 weeks. There are many people on here with children closer together in age then mine. My sister and I are 364 days apart. I'd love to have kids that close in age but I'd never tell hubby that because he'd have a heart attack. lol

  • I have 3 (well the 3rd will be arriving in Jan). My oldest 2 are 26 months apart, my youngest 2 will be 13 months apart. So that's only 3 years & some change between all 3.

  • We have one child and we are TTC so if I get pregnant soon they will be 4 1/2 to 5 years apart.
