3 kids all 18 months apart?

My fiancé and I were discussing kids and one of our sticking points is how many. He wants two and I want three. Basically it boils down to our ages. I'm 30 and he's 38 so if we space out kids out 3-4 years then we will both be pretty darn old when the youngest graduates high school.

So moms of kids close in age was it crazy? Do you wish you had spaced them out farther?

We are looking at having basically a 2 year old an 18 month old and a newborn.

And before anyone says it this isn't a fight and if after our second he says he's done then I will be ok with that.

Do what you two think is best and what you think you can deal with. Good luck

I only have the one. When I was younger, I did want more...as did my husband. However mentally I can only handle one. Just becuase you "want" something, doesn't mean you should have it. If you can't mentally and financially care for them at the time you want to TTC for the next, DONT. If you can (and you'll know), then do so. 

My point is, everyone is different. We have different levels of "readiness" 

*If you read my post and there are mistakes in my spelling or grammar please note that I never learned either in school and I am currently learning them now. If you see a mistake POLITELY point it out and I'll be more than happy to correct my mistake. Here's a fun little siggy for your enjoyment. *

If you two think you can, no one is stopping you. I have two 18 months apart. I didn't plan either kid, but it is hard. I manage. You learn to juggle quickly.

I have four kids. Ages 5.5 (jan '07), 4 (aug '08), 2.5 (jan '10), and 14 months (sept '11). It can get crazy at times, but I would not change it.

My kids are 2 and 3 (almost 4). They are 17 montha apart. There's no way in hell I could handle a 3rd right now.
