Wasn't quite supposed to happen this way, but just found out due early November, first little one not 6 months old yet. What have we let ourselves in for?!

Hard hard work. But in 6 years time when they're both at school, it'll be worth it.

there are 14 months between me and my brother, and 18 months between my twins and their brother - both are survivable . I think the first year is th e worst - after that they are increasingly at simialr stages and doing similar things. My twins are 2 and DS1 is 3.5 - they now play together well most of the time.

15 months between my sister and I and we are very close.

i think u will cope no matter what and as time goes on and the kids get older then it will be easier. Good luck

wasn't this age gap very common back in the 60's and 70's? See, retro is in!

Well I can recommend a good antidepressant....

Sorry - not meant to sound churlish. Congratulations on your pregnancy!

You may as well prepare yourself for the fact that it will be damned hard work (no point living in a fools paradise), but it will all come out in the wash and be worth it in the end...

All the best - It's hard work but worth it

moondog - the 18 month gap was planned but the twins weren't ! Hard work but a real priviledge .

Honestly I like the small gap but won't deny the first year was hard.
