Bexx, good luck. Sounds like you've been trying long enough, it's time for it to stick. I hope I'm not in that situation. I want TTC to go quick! Both of my kids were one hit wonders. It's so hard having them almost 4 years apart, I'm dreading the new age gaps. My husband is 7 years older than his sister and they aren't close at all, just a few mentor moments every couple months, not like friends. Hopefully, the new baby will come soon, which would make my kids 11 and 7 1/2.

Just dropping by this board and lurking, but I saw your post and wanted to reply. I have 2 girls, ages 10 and 8 and am 18 1/2 weeks pregnant with #3. I was worried about the age gaps also, but the girls are SO excited about this baby. They have been making him things and buying him little things for the past month or so. My oldest has even been writing him letters that she will give to him when he is older. I think that they will do great with him. Try not to worry about the age gaps too much...it will all work out fine!

Oh, that sounds so sweet! I'll definitely suggest the letter idea when my time comes. Congratulations on your growing family!

Oh don't worry about the age gap! A baby will be a blessing to your family. My daughter is 14 and I'm trying to have a baby with my new husband because he has no children of his own. We are looking into a fertility clinic now- that's a whole new world!! Best of luck, think positive :-)
