Your freaking baby pictures

are giving me baby fever! 

One of my good friends had her son today and just looking at all these pictures is making me want another. My son is 14 months old. I've always said I wanted my kids to be at least 3 years apart but damn it's hard. I miss the "sweet little baby" days....

I keep trying to remind myself about the 35 or so weeks of pregnancy that just plain suck and how hard a newborn can be... I must admit my DS was a pretty good baby so I just know I'll end up with a colicky baby next time. (my luck)

How far apart are your kids? Is it really easier for them to be spread out more? Also, feel free to remind me of all the other not so "sweet" things about pregnancy and babies. :)

Mine are almost 5 years apart.
My ideal spacing is 3 years or more. But 5 years worked perfect for us!
DD is 5, DS is 4 months. She is a great help. And I have got 2 great babies!
The adjustment wasn't hard at all once I got my schedule set. Time management the first few weeks was a challenge. I felt I was constantly either feeding or bathing a child or cooking or cleaning. No down time.

But now it's easy!

I would wait. My OB says 2 years at least from the end of one pregnancy until you should begin another.

My sons are exactly 2 years & 3 weeks apart. I love it although it is hectic at times. I had & still do alot of hip pains from very early in pregnancy (before i tested).

My first two are 2 years 2 months apart.

My second and third are 1 year 9 months apart.  This one was the easiest adjustment. 

It was sooooo much better than transitioning from 1 to 2.  Maybe that's just because the first two had someone to play with.

If I got pregnant as soon as DH came home (military training) then my kids would be pretty much 2 years apart and I know that's a little too close in age for me but I just keep seeing all these little babies and I just want one! hahaha. That's interesting about your hips tho. I have really bad pain too! I had to get a cortisone shot awhile back for pain. I guess I should keep that in mind when deciding on reproducing again. lol.
