How far apart are you children?

I'm sure their is probably an old post about this, but I'm not sure how to find it and I am curious...Mine are going to be 19 months apart...I'm a little nervous...just realized I wrote "you" instead of "your" in the heading...oops

My 4 are 2.5 years between 1 &2, 3 years between 2 and 3, and 19 months between 3 and 4. I think 2.5 years is the best age range. 3 years is too far apart and 19 months is too close.

Re: How far apart are you children?

My 4 are 20 mos between 1 & 2, 4 yrs between 2 & 3, 20.5 mos between 3 & 4. I have enjoyed both gaps and with 4 spaced like this, they are like pairs. Although I think 2.5 years is probably ideal.

Re: How far apart are you children?

My boys are just shy of 4.5yrs appart. I am happy we waited this long, especially because of ds1's special needs, but it was a bit strange being flung back into the baby thing again. It seems like we had finally gotten to where ds could go visit his grandparents and we could go out, we could take him to restraunts and out shopping with out having to pack the whole house along, ect, and now we are right back in there. But I know my sanity couldn't have with stood them being any closer in age. I just don't have it in me. We would like at least one more child, but we won't even consider trying before ds2's second b-day, probably later.

Re: How far apart are you children?

first two are 19 months apart and last two are almost 5 years apart. Youngest was kind of a surprise, I suppossedly couldn't get pg. Soo glad the dr. was wrong, especially considering we weren't preventing for 3 years.

Exact same for my kids. My ds was 7 years 6 months and 1 day old when dd was born. #3 is due on dd's 4th birthday!! I like big gaps between the kids but if I want one more I may have to have the next one sooner than 4 years from now (dh says he is getting too old).
