Anyone Else? 2 under 2?


Hey ladies,

Well I just recently found out I am pregnant again with my 2nd being only 9 months old! This will give an age gap of 18 months meaning iíll be having 2 under 2. I am happy and grateful but also a bit nervous as I will be dealing with a 4 year old, an 18 month old, and a newborn.

Anyone else in the same boat or have similar experience? What did I get myself into?

I am currently pregnant with my third as well! My kids will be 4, 22mo, and newborn when the new baby comes along! (3.5 & 14mo right now.) I'm nervous also. But I know we'll be able to handle it! Good luck to us both!!

We have a 20 month and 23 month age gap. I won't lie there are days it's hard but there are great things about it too. And it can be done! I'm now pregnant with our 4th. This time was a surprise! There will be a 2 year age gap this time.

Iíve had 3 under 3 - when my third boy was born I had a newborn, a 12 month old and my eldest was 2 months off his third birthday!!!

It was manic, crazy! But worth it!!!

I'm not pregnant now but have the same gap (basically 19 months though) and it was actually surprisingly easy when my second was a baby, it got hard when she was 2/3 but now she is 4 and my eldest is turning 6 it's not so bad again! She is catching up with his abilities which means they can play together again. I wouldn't do the gap again lmao but it's not the worst thing and these days my two really are great friends. ♡

I'm pregnant with number 3 and there'll be almost exactly a 2 year gap, give or take a week or 2 depending on lo's arrival. I'm delighted that my LG will have a sibling close in age but a bit nervous about bedtime and giving her attention when I'm bfing. She's always on the go and a not a great sleeper so it'll be a bit of a juggle!

I had 2 under 13 months, 3 under 2.5, 4 under 4 and 5 in exactly 6 years and 4 days! All being well with this surprise pregnancy, we are headed for 6 under 7 �� The hardest bit about going from 1 baby to 2, is having to prioritise whose need is greater when they both want something. But you get used to it quickly, and it's lovely having them close. Xx
