My son is almost 3 and we are just now starting to TTC again.
We just agreed when our oldest was about 9 or 10 mo that it might be time to try again. It took us 6 mo to get pregnant with our second so they are not quite 2 1/2 yrs apart. When our second was about 9mo old we decided to start trying cause it took a little time the last time - I got pregnant the first time - they are 18 1/2mo apart ;-)
Isabelle turned 3 in October after her sister was born in July.
My husband and I have had many conversations about how many kids we wanted, and how far apart we probably wanted them, so there wasn't really anything I needed to "bring up" to my husband. One or the other of us just said maybe it was time to try again, and we did.
I have a 12 year old, a 9 year old, an almost 8mo old, and I'm TTC now.
My parents waited six weeks after I was born. My brother was born eleven months after me. There's no right or wrong, it's right when it feels right.
There is about 2 yrs, give or take a few months, between each of my other three kids. kids. There is 1 yr and 10 months between my 7 and 5 yr olds. 1 yr and 9 months between my 5 and 3 yr olds. There is 2 yrs and 11 months between my 3 yr old and my 5 month old.
