Baby #4?

My husband and I want four kids, but I'm not sure when to have the last one. We currently have an 8 year old boy, a 7 year old girl, and a 14 month old boy. From past experiences it takes me 6 months to get pregnant after I quit using birth control. Please let me know your experience and suggestion on age separation. Thanks.

My older two kids are 5 years apart and my younger two are 17 months apart. Both have there good and bad. Everything has worked out though. Our oldest will be 12 1/2 when our last is born. I'm not sure I will enjoy that age gap. We our oldest starts her senior year the baby will just be starting kindergarten.

Did you prefer 2 or 3 years apart?

My son is 6 and I'm planning to have my second baby this year so they'll be 6 years apart.

At that point, it really doesn't make a difference, they're close enough that a year won't change much. I love the age gaps as they are currently.

My son is 7 1/2, my daughter will be 3 in 2 months and I'm having my 3rd this month. My son was 4 1/2 when I had my daughter and I think I liked that age gap better than I will like the gap between my daughter and this baby. But it also had a lot to do with their personalities.

I only have 2 and they are 16 months apart.  My daughter is 20 months old and my son is 4 months.  It's difficult sometimes but also a lot of fun!
