How far apart are you children? 
Were your younger children planned? 

I can't sleep, and just curious... plus BG has been dead lately, so I figured I'd post.  

My sons 13 months, some days I want more sooner rather than later and some days I'm good for now.

DD and DS are 22 months apart and were both planned. This baby will be 4 years younger than DS. We wanted a closer age gap but unfortunately had a loss. 

I've never had an unplanned pregnancy.

My oldest 3 are 23 months and some days apart. My 4th is four years younger than my 3rd and my 4th and 5th are 17 months apart. 
As far as parenting goes the 4 year age gap was the easiest for me. However, the older three are extremely close and friends as well as siblings. I hope the younger two form that close bond as well.


eta... My second child was my only planned child.

All of my kiddos were planned. There is a 3.5 year gap between 1 and 2. Different fathers tho. Otherwise I think it would have been closer. 15 months between 2 and 3. I feel like that was insane. Stupid baby fever had me not thinking clearly. Lol. 23 months between 3 and 4. We are TTC now. If I conceive this month it will be another 22/23 month gap. I like that best I think.
