I waited 11 years! I waited until I had a college degree, financial security, and a great guy before having my second. I am now working on my 3rd. She's due in May.

5 years. We just weren't ready for another child. When we were ready we stopped trying to prevent a pregnancy.

 My kids are 4 years apart. I wanted my oldest out of diapers  and much more independent before having another baby.

It's going to be probably 11 years.

I was single for almost 9 years. We were comfortable financially, but another child would have made things difficult. I was getting to the point where I felt I could afford another child when I met my husband. Now we are waiting to 'settle' a bit as a family and get to a better place in our finances and careers. Another 7 months left!

Was it weird for your oldest?
