    If all goes ok with this pregnancy my son will be three months off his fifth birthday when this little one arrives.

    We did start ttc two years ago though so hadn't planned in such a big age gap but, I think it'll work out well for us as he's going to be in school so I'll have plenty of one to one time with baby.

    All going well there will be a 3 year age gap. A little larger gap than I'd expected as it took a lot longer to catch this time.

    My first 2 were 16 months apart. It was bloody hard but I'm so glad I did it now!! They are best pals (most of the time!!).

    There will be just over 3 years between my youngest and this one, but I am planning (at least) one more and assuming circumstances allow we will aim for a small gap between this one and a future sibling...

    20 months between our first two. This time it will be 23 months. It would have been 18 months but I had a MC at 10 weeks with my last pregnancy.

    What did u find the hardest? Cos this will be me if everything works out. I'm exited about a small age gap but also know it's gonna be hard work.

    With a 20 month age gap one of the things I found the hardest was that I couldn't leave them together on their own for 3 seconds. With DD before she could get about on her own I used to leave her on the play mat or a blanket on the floor happily kicking her feet in the air while I nipped to the toilet or whatever. It was never for long but I could nip back and forth doing things without her noticing much. DD was really good with her little brother considering her age and would never have hurt him on purpose but I still couldn't trust her not to jump on him or throw something at him without realising. It meant if the pone rang, I wanted a glass of water or to nip to the loo etc one or both of them had to be trailed round with me. DS spent a lot of time in his boba wrap which helped and it didn't take DD too long to be more trustworthy with him.
