I had DD2 when DD1 was 2 years 9 months. Both DP and I wanted them close together and we didn't want dd1 to be an only child. It is a bit of a juggle but I find if you manage your time efficiently and have a supportive partner it makes life a lot easier!
Having them close together means we get the baby junk out the way faster, the toddler stage will be over in a few years. Sure I have to sacrifice my life and my interests for a few years but so be it, there's plenty of time to get back to all that stuff when the kids are older!

My first two are 19 months apart, difficult at the beginning but not as bad as I expected.

We will be trying again as soon as possible after this bub is born as I want a small gap,between our first two.

I remember before DD was born I would say that I wanted to try for another one quite soon after she was born.....then she was born and I changed my mind completely! She is about to turn 3 and we still aren't ready. I'm studying now so want to finish my course first and I love the somewhat freedom of just having the 1. Might start trying next year so would be roughly a 4 or 5 year gap

7 years! Lol in my defence I was not with My now hubby when I had my first
But we are now pregnant with his second biological (my third) child which by the time she arrives will be just shy of a 3 year gap.
