    There were 20 months between my first 2 and there will be nearly 6 years this time round. Not sure which which scenario made me more crazy lol

    We have a trick baby and I had a trick pregnancy.....which is why I don't want to have another one ever! It will take a lot of convincing from DH for me to ever consider tempting the baby gods and giving them an opportunity to give us a nightmare the next time!

    DW said she didn't mind if I wanted to carry the next but I had a smooth sailing pregnancy and really enjoyed it.... I can't be that lucky twice!

    I know our next little bub will be a monster because we were blessed with an angel for our first. She's too good to us and we are well aware this is not what babies are really like

    I was ready the second DD1 was born. And that is why our girls are a year apart

    My girls are 13 months apart and they were both easy perfect pregnancies. DD1 was a crap sleeper until I put her on a routine. DD2 awesome babe awesome sleeper challenging toddler. 22 months between DD2 and DS and that gap has been good too apart from a harder pregnancy. Personally I think it's great being pregnant while your older is still a baby. Nap when they do, not demanding, happy to chill and do nothing. Being pregnant with 2 toddlers now that was hard!

    You can be lucky twice! I was. I thought DD1 was easy but DD2 was even easier!! DD3 has been teething almost since birth so she's been a little more unsettled but still generally pretty chilled out!

    Just bear in mind that the closer you have them in age, although fabulous when they are small and you are already in 'baby mode'.... they will be teenagers at the same time. This is not necessarily quite as fabulous. (Finding that out right now!) nobody ever thinks that far ahead... I know I didnt.

    Do it...haha..! Definitely not nuts, can't help what the heart wants..!
    You ladies know my crazy story, 4 kids in 5 years, the middle 2 only 10.5 months apart. Don't get me wrong, some times were tough, still have been recently but i wouldn't change a single thing especially with the gap. The bond my girls share is amazing, I love seeing them grow together!!

    What's that like? My sister and I were opposites. She was the easy teenager and I was the one getting up to no good. Hopefully our children don't follow in my footsteps
