Don't worry sunshine we've all heard that old chestnut afew times over and my 14 year old daughter is just brilliant with my two year daughter they have a really special bond and sometimes I don't even get a look in . But another simply brilliant plus is my daughter has said she doesn't want kids of her own til she's at least 35 so she's definitely not following to my footsteps either for which I'm very glad , she's very forcused on a career and I'm so very proud of her .xx

My daughter has said for years she doesn't want kids, and has been even more determined since she became diabetic, I'm sure she may change her mind in the future, but I won't hold my breath!

Well I am currently pregnant with Baby number 4 and I have a 19 year old Son, 16 year old Son and a 12 year old Daughter.

I had my first, Shane, when I was 16 and now I am 36 so I will have a pretty huge age gap. Feels odd being a teenage Mom and now being a pregnant Mom over 35 but hey, stranger things have happened!

Only my 19 year old knows atm and he is a bit freaked out by it lol.

I guess I could actually be a Nan by now and heres me starting all over again, soooo exciting!

I am the eldest of 3 girls, with 4.5yrs between me and the middle one, and 14yrs between the youngest. My mum remarried and had the youngest, but we're like best friends. She is only 9 yrs older than my son and they are best buds too. There's always pros and cons to every situation, but I'm sure they'll be fine

I don't have the experience but I know if I have another I want a bigger age gap- simply so I don't miss out on the "biggest" growing up abd milestones etc x

I will have a big gap between mine, my boy is 6 in July and I'm not pregnant yet, so will be at least a 7 year gap between them

I'm 43 and my daughter was born a month before my youngest son's 13th birthday. My eldest son was almost 16 at the time. I feel a lot more tired as an older mum but really enjoying being a mum again nonetheless. My boys love her to bits and took it on board a lot more easily than I expected for two teenagers. They have been surprisingly helpful too. This is the three of them just before Christmas. xxx

I have a 12 year old step daughter, 8 year old, 5 year old and Emma is 8 weeks old. Main issue so far is getting the kids to school on time when there's a baby to be fed too. And finding quiet time to help the kids with homework. Didn't have this issue when the older ones were born as they weren't at school. Otherwise it's quite easy. My 8 year old will feed Emma, watch her when I'm in the shower. And my 5 year old runs back and forward giving me an update of what's going on. Lol

I was 13.5 years old when my sister was born snd I was actually there and cut the umbilical cord... it was amazing. I loved having a baby sister and still do now.
I am now 16+5 weeks and my son will be 11 yrs when the baby is born so I have a big gap myself. I could be half ad grest as how my parents were I would be more then happy. I do worry though that my son will feel neglected once the baby is there, so now I am spending all my free time with him. He loves his stepdad so I hope there wont be any jeslousy coming... as I just remember too well how my brother was when our sister was born... he hated it as he wax alwsys the youngest lol...
