    I'm interested to hear opinions too...DP & I had our "one & only" DD 9 years ago, & now, at age 34 I am 15 weeks with #2....quite a suprise really!!! I couldn't tell you who's more excited out of DP & DD, me I'm just a bit nervous....there will be 9ys & 11months between the two, that's a LONG time to forget how to do stuff!!!

    My sister and I are 8 years apart.

    We got along really well when she was little and I loved being a big sister - but then I hit my terrible teens as she hit her precocious preschooler period and the crackers hit the fan. We had a rocky few years as we got on each others nerves: I was a reclusive loner and she wanted to follow me around and I was totally not impressed.

    Now we're BFFs for life and everything is great! The age gap has advantages and disadvantages!

DS1 is 12 and things didnt work out between his father and I... so ive now been happily married for 4yrs and we decided to have a baby... there is 11 yrs between the boys and they adore each other. DH and I are now trying for another.

    Would number 3 effectively be an only child? Yes.

    I am that 3rd child with an 8 year gap between #2 & #3 and yes I feel like an only child.

    Hi BG,

    I am older than you and age wasn't a concern for me in deciding to TTC for our third. I'm 36...

    Our boys are close in age. There will be a 5/6 year gap (if it happens soon ) between the baby and second child.

    ALL age gaps have their pros and cons! Don't let it put you off!!

    I'd imagine girls would swoon over a baby brother or sister

    DS was 12 when I had DD last year (had #1 when I was 17, #2 I was 29). The thought of having such a big gap worried me at first but since having her DS has been beyond amazing with his baby sister- he is besotted with her and she adores him in return. For us the age gap has been a complete non issue. I love finally being able to say "my KIDS"

    I'm currently pregnant. My eldest is 17, youngest 8. At 35 I'm feeling it with this pregnancy but with 4 kids I have 4 helpers & the love and excitement they already have for the new baby is the sweetest experience of my life)

    Curious as to why you refer to your wife.. (As opposed to yourself). Presumably there's a 22 year gap between your ​youngest and oldest?
