My 1st and 2nd are 19 months apart and my 3rd and 4th will also be 19 months apart. I love the age gap and the bond that my kids have because of it. It's a little more work in the beginning, essentially having two babies, but you'll get the hang of it and it really just becomes second nature. And two in diapers really isn't all that bad :)

I'm due in July with my second child and just had my first child this past July... So mine will be about 12 months and one week apart... I'm excited for the challenge. I've heard from many people that having their children close together was the best thing they've ever done... So I guess it depends on the person

I don't, my oldest and second are 2 years apart, my 2nd and 3rd are 3 years apart and there will be 2 years between my 3rd and 4th. However, my sister has 5 kids and 2 of them are less than 11 months apart, I kid you not. She was pregnant again before her 6 week check up. They are both in 1st grade right now and the best of friends. I think it's great to have your kids close if your body and sanity will allow it (mine won't LOL) Congrats mama!

I don't as I'm having my first. She is due in March but is trying to come early but my sister and I are only 16.5 months apart and we love each other. No matter what, we are always there for each other, well, most of the time lol. Of course there will be differences between your little ones, but it will be fun. I adore my older sister.
