    Wow Jue, that's lovely - your elder children will be able to help look after the younger ones!!

    I suppose age gap is one of those things you don't have a great deal of control over sometimes!!

    There will be almost 5 and a half years between my two.

    I have an older brother and sister 12 and 13 years older than me, it was like having another set of parents :lol: My sister used to look after me a lot when I was little and I used to worship her. I used to annoy her though by playing with her makeup when I was about 3 or 4, once I ate the dye she used to dye her jeans! I also locked her in the garden shed once :rotfl:

    8 and a half years between my two.. :)

    Although if Tia had gotten to 10 I'd not have had any more.. Its bad enough feeling like your just starting to get your life back with an 8 year old to do it all over again.. :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    My Aunt has a 31 year old son and a 12 year old son. By the time the youngest was born her eldest had already moved out. If I have another baby after this one Id like to wait 4 years min

    I think the only thing I would change is that maybe I wouldnt have had kids so young, I was 17 when I had my first.

    I worked really hard to stay off benefits when my older kids were younger and missed lots of time with them as I worked so hard.

    With my 6 yr old and little Winky, I am lucky enough to be able to be a stay at home mum, so I wont miss a thing!!

    Well my oldest will be 7 and my youngest 4 when I have this little one so not a big age gap really but...

    I was 12 when my brother was born - I loved helping to look after him when he was a baby and now he sometimes babysits for me :)
