How old was your first child when you had more?

My daughter is 19 mos old and I would REALLY like to try having my second child but right now is deff not the time. It upsets me cause I want(ed) to have my babies close in age so they can grow up together. I grew up being an only child w/ no family around and let me tell you, it is pretty lonely (it stil upsets me to this day). I do have two older step daughters, they are very close in age (6 and 7) and I know they will be VERY close when they get older (they are very close right now). I just wish it could be the same for my daughter =/

Alright-e, enough w/ the pitty party... it won't change anything :)

Our son will be 2 in May, and our second is due in June.

My sister and I were 4 years apart, and although we had our normal sibling type fights--we got along really well for the most part. As we grew older, we became really close. I'm 23 and she's 19, and we're like best friends now.

Well, I got pregnant again right away after DD#1, but lost that baby. They would have been 9 months apart.

However, my oldest was a little over 4 when my second was born. They enjoy playing together, even 4 years apart.  

I also got pregnant again right away after DD#2, but lost that pregnancy as well. They would have been 11 months apart.

My oldest 2 boys are 20 months apart.  Then, when they were 10 and 12,  I got pregnant with my 3rd.  I had my 4th 2 1/2 yrs later.  The younger ones aren't close with the older ones at all.  There was too much of an age gap.  But, the older 2 are very close.  Since my younger 2 are a boy and girl, they're close in a way, but they have totally different interests.

Mine are 11 months apart. My son was 2.5 months old when I conceived.

our daughter had just turned 2 when our first son was born, he passed the same day though. she was 3 1/2 when our second son was born and it seems to be a good gap. we are planning TTC our last child in december, so our youngest will be about 3 when the baby is born.
