  • If both of you agree on the baby and you have the money and energy for it than go for it!

  • I have four kids and they were all three years apart except for the last one...It was a dream come true!!! I never thought that I would have four!!! My last one was born when I was 45.11 yrs young and that was a challenge (difficult pregnancy) but she is 13 now and it still is easy. Now My mom had 4 children in 33 months and did just GREAT!!! AND my niece has 6 boys all three years apart... THEN my sister has two children 11 months IRISH TWINS!!! Love those kids!!!

  • Not at all. Go with your gut! By the way, I got pregnant (not on purpose) when my second child was 9 months old. When my third (and last) child was born, my oldest was only 3 1/2. So it was difficult managing three kids for the first five years, but now I couldn't be happier. We are all ready to do things as a family, with no babies or diapers to tote around. I LOVE having kids close in age. They go through stages together and they can play together and with each other's friends. Having three is a bit of a pain because with that dynamic, someone is usually left out and they bicker every chance they get...but I'm 39 and I'm DONE! haha

  • If yall are ready for another 1 then go for it. My sisters kids are 16 months apart. My kids are all 9 yrs apart. My oldest is 19,my middle is fixin to b 11 n march, & I have an 18 month old. I'm 36. There are 4 kids n my family. My older sister is 4 yrs older then me, but mom had a miscarriage between us. The rest of us are all 2 yrs apart. My grandmother was in her 40's when she had her last one. Theres only 3 yrs difference between my older sister & my youngest aunt. So do what you like. GL with all the babies.
