I have two daughters one is 30 months the other is 12 months and I'm 14 weeks pregnant with number 3. I've always wanted to have my children close together. My girl's are each other's best friend and they are only 1 and 2. I'm SO happy all of my children are going to be close in age, it will always give them someone to play with and talk to!!

I only have one son but my mom had 3 kids(including me ) in 33 months. We all got along great and diapers,cribs,bottles,... were all at once. We got along well and when the baby came,3 years after the youngest, we were all able to help,Robin

I have 5 children ages 13,11,7,3 and 10 months. When I had my first two sons they were 16 months apart. They are really close and my older son said his brothers are his best friends(Although I think at 13 that may change,lol)
My two youngest are two years apart and they play well together. There is a little sibling rivalry, but my hubby and I try to spend as much time as we can with each one. I think its great to have the children close together, because it seems as though my 7 year old has the most trouble with fitting in. He's not quite old enough to engage in the same activities as my two older boys and he's too young for many of the activities with my younger boys.(He's also the middle child). But he still has his Mommy and Daddy and his older brothers to take up time with him when he's feeling left out.

i have 2 boys one is 3 and one is 2. my oldest wasn't even a year old when i found out i was pregnant with baby number 2. i was scared didn't know if i could handle it. but i love it. i look back now and think how silly i was for ever thinking it would be a problem. they keep themselves occupied by playing together. me and my sister are 5 yrs apart i have talked to her once in the past year. i only hope my boys will stay friends as they get older

My brother and I are roughly two and a half years apart.  We get along great and we were there for each other through the good times and the bad...  We have always been really close.  I have a little sister that is 7 years younger than I am.  When she was growing up, she wanted to play Barbies while I wanted to chase the boys.  I always felt like more of a mother to her than a sister.  I never really appreciated my relationship with my sister until I got older and moved away...  My mom told me from the time my sister was born that I'd never be as close to her as I am my brother, and I have found that to be true for the most part.  Anyways, that it just from my personal experience growing up.  My husband and I have also been discussing baby #2 and our son is 12 months old.  I have said from the get go that I wanted my children close in age and that goes back to remembering how I grew up.  I want my children to feel like brothers and sisters, not parents - figures to their siblings.  But again, that's just from personal experience and not something that I think will work for everyone!!  Anyways, best luck in your final decision!
