Well we only had 1 and my dd started headstart. She was also 3 1/2 years old and she kept asking why she doesn't have a brother or sister (her cousins have at least 3 siblings)

I felt we could of waited a little longer, but I didn't want my children too far apart. DH and I started ttc then stopped then started again in July and I got pregnant in the last week of Dec =)

We got married October 2011 and agreed that once we bought our house (we had been looking for a few months), got all of the new bills in order, and were comfortable with finances - we would start trying. So, April of 2012 we started trying and it took 9, excruciating, months.

Today I hit 27 weeks! I'm due 2 weeks after our 2nd anniversary :)

Of course! every morning she wakes up, rub my belly, says "good morning" to her brother and asks if today is the day that we can see the baby and she can play with him lol. I think its harder for her to wait b/c I put up all the baby stuff and already had my baby shower (I'm 30weeks)

My daughter had just turned 2 and I hated my birth control. My husband and I decided that I should get off of it. I had read that it takes about a year on average for a woman to get pregnant after stopping it, so we just decided to have fun for a while. It took 6 months for me to get pregnant and by that time my daughter was fully potty trained during the day so we knew it was perfect timing and they will be 3y3m apart by the time this one is due.
