Just wondering those of you who had the first 3 dc close together and ended up having one more ,what age gap did you decide to have between last 2. Would be interesting to see as i don't really hear 4dc where 3 close in age then one further apart. But who knows? smile

The age gap between my dc3 and dc4 was 18 minutes! Might have liked a bigger one!

Sorry, not v helpful to you...

21 months between number 3 and 4 and 8 years between number 4 and 5 here.
18 months between number 1 and 2 and 4 years between number 2 and 3.
In effect two pairs and a single.

I am pregnant (early) with number 4.

My three are 6, 4 and 2 but will be 7, 5 and 3 when the new baby arrives if everything goes well.

Probably not as big as you wanted to hear about but the biggest gap we've ever had. There's 20 months between 1&2 and 2y 4m between 2&3.

We are ttc our fourth and there'll be at least 3 years between them...

3 years between DC3 and 4, that is our biggest gap between them all, the smallest gap was 18 months.

6 years between ds3 and ds4.
I also have 6years between ds1 and ds2. 18 months between ds2 and ds3.

23 months between dd1 and dd2. 19 months between dd2 and ds. 4 years between ds and dd3. She was not exactly planned! Working really well though. Big 3 are off at school and pre-school and dd3 has just fitted in. I'm loving doing all the baby activities again too, like having my first only this time I feel as though I know what I'm doing!

we have 2.4 yrs between DC1 and DC2, 20 minutes between DC2 and DC3 and due to illness we have to delay TTC DC4 so it will be around 4years between DTs and DC4.

13 months between dc3 and dc4. I'm not going to lie at the moment it's bloody hard work (18 months and 5 months) I'm hoping it will get easier but I know it probably won't grin

I had 3 under 4, then an 11 yr age gap between dc3 & dc4, then dc5 23 months later.

My last dc are the closest! 4 and 2. Older ones are 12 and 7.
It's good having the younger one close together. Love it!

I have 15 months between dc1 & 2, then 6 years between 2 & 3, and it will be almost 4 years between 3 and 4

TheOneWiththeNicestSmile Wed 15-Apr-15 14:50:19

My first 3 were not born close together - 3 year gaps in both cases (I could only cope with 1 baby at a time - lucky I never had twins grin)

There was a 5 year gap before DC4 though

They are all grown up now, all good friends & love spending time together which is nice smile

Threeplus1 Thu 16-Apr-15 23:35:23

That was actually meant to say 'almost 5 years between dc 3 and 4'

I hope mine are all good friends when they are older too theonewith .... They were when they were little but preteen attitudes have taken hold and they constantly bicker confused
