  • well, mine are 15 months and 2 1/2 now but yes I've been there! they are 15 month apart. I got pregnant when he was 7 months and she was a month early.

    also I was born on my brother's first birthday so I kinda have experience from both ends, child of it, and parent of it. PM if you want :)

  • Mine are 15 months apart, now 2 and 3. It is not as hard as you probably think it will be right now.

  • You know what, it is great! My first two are about 21 months apart, and they are the best of friends, always have been. They are now almost 12 years and 10 years. It is so fun to see them whispering to one another because they know they can always trust each other and take care of each other.

    My last two are the same age difference. It is hard but I know I have alot to look forward to and so do they. Good luck and have fun!!

  • my first 2 are 17m apart they are 2yr and 9m and i am 26wks pregnant. she will be born right around her sisters 1st b-day.

    I dont know how im going to do it. But i will and so will you. Mom mom had 2 babies 36wks apart to the day. they were born nov.1999 and aug.2000 i was 10. And i had to take care of them most the time so my parents could work.

  • also to add onto what bellasrose said, they keep each other company!! when you have one kid you're constantly trying to keep them entertained..when you have two, the older sibling does that for you.. mine just Adore each other and would do anything for each other..that's the bonus of having them so close together. it really wasn't as hard as i thought..but it is a pain loading 2 kids up to go every where..much easier though cuz daddy is around.

  • My boys are 11 mos apart. It's not hard to care for 2 children realitively the same age. They keep each other busy when you need a moment to your self. they are so close that they can't sleep in seperate beds. and there best friends. plus they got the added benefit of social skills at a young age.
