my daughter just turned 2 in january & we just found out we are expecting again. my daughter will be 2 1/2 when this baby is born! try again when you are 100 % comfortable. I had a misscarriage in december. we didn't expect good news this soon :)

I think it's too soon, but that's me. Mine are 3 and 5 years apart. Which I thought was perfect.

For me and my sanity and lifestyle, i couldnt imagine having them too close in age. My girls are 4 yrs apart and i am so glad and done having kids. Having that age gap helps out so much. They are not babies together. One of them is potty trained and learning to be responsible and she is such a big helper. Just look at the reality of your life and go from there. Think about if it will put stress on you and your family and if you think you can handle another financialy

I'd wait until your youngest is at least 3.

So you'll have a three year old, a two year old and a newborn. You're braver than I! I would read some things on child development so you'll have an idea of what to expect with all of them.
