A strange thing happens when you’ve been in a long-term relationship. The questions people come out with become incredibly personal even if they don’t know you that well. So are you going to get married? Do you want to have kids? When are you going to have kids? Then you have your first kid and almost immediately people will start to ask you when and if you are going to have any more? It’s bizarre! I think we are all guilty of doing it too, even though we’ve had the question asked to us much to our annoyance!

So I’m going to ask it now, don’t worry you don’t have to answer out loud, do you want another baby? It’s ok if you don’t, there is no right or wrong answer. If so when do you want to do ‘it’ again?! Perhaps you struggled to have your first, perhaps you are still trying to get your life back to some sort of normal since your last baby. May be you aren’t financially stable or you want to go for that promotion at work. There’s that ski trip you want to take or a wedding to be bridesmaid at…. then of course there’s the age gap? What’s the best age gap? Is there a best age gap? Who the heck really knows, you can go into a tail spin trying to plan things and a lot of the time with babies you just can’t plan.

In our latest Hey Mummy vlog myself and Anna are chatting about the ages gaps we ended up with and why and if it’s working out.

  • I had my first baby three months, and days after giving birth I had people telling to start thinking about the next one. My response then, “not anytime soon” and it’s the same today. I will start thinking about a second child when my first one turns one; that way they will have a two year gap or so
