  • I didn't know, it was a total surprise when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. It was alright since my son was already a toddler at the time.

  • You're never really sure. How fast we got pregnant (4 months after our son was born) we really weren't expecting that. Yet when we found out we really felt that it was right. Now I'm pregnant with our third, which we concieved 6 months after our daughter was born. I wouldn't recommend having them all within a 3 year span, but for us it's working out so far.

  • We knew we wanted about three years between our two so that's how we planned it. if it had happened by accident before then we would have still been happy.

  • Right before my son turned 2 I felt like we just weren't complete yet. More and more I realized I wanted one more baby and wanted my son to have a sibling to grow up with.

  • I will let you know...when we know. lol My son is 4.5 years old and we are thinking maybe one is a good number for us. We get the comments from rude people. But we know our family is complete.

  • I'm pregnant with our second and he/she was not planned! I don't know if you really know that your ready, you just have to go with the flow.
