    we used shettles when ttc #3 and it 'worked'. I'm not completely convinced but figured we might as well try. Of course I'm not sure how I would have felt if we were trying for a girl cause I know your chances are a bit lower that you'll get pregnant at all each month. I will say that while my #1 and #3 were conceived on days that would make sense with the settles method, I'm fairly sure our second daughter was conceived the day I ovulated or the day before and if the Dr's dates are correct with #4 we dtd at least 3-4 days before I ovulated and he's definitely a boy

    When my first two were little, I felt like two kids that small were as much as I could handle. But if you think you can handle it, go for it! It's great having them so close in age, because they'll have their own peer group no matter what. But if you don't think you can handle it, then tell your DH you'd like to wait just a bit longer. There's no right or wrong answer here. And I agree with you about boys. I would have been plenty happy with a house full of boys if I hadn't adopted a girl.

    DS Caleb, 13 ...... DS Patrick, 12
    DS Isaiah, 8 ......... DS Thomas, 7

    Exciting stuff! I don't think you are crazy. Whatever works for you is doable! I get ppl telling me ALL the freaking time "I don't know how you do it!" (twins) and I usually say, "because I have to". lol. It sounds terrible, but you do what you need to, and you usually love it. lol.

    My first two are 27mo apart (though we started trying when dd was 11mo) and then I have a 5yr gap. it was not at all what I wanted or planned for, but it works for us, because it is what it is. I am thankful for it now. My ds would not have done well before then, a clingy snuggly boy, he needed more momma time. And now the two older ones are in school full time, so I have some time with just the twins. It works, and when you have your next, it will work.

    I nursed my twins for 2years and 2 weeks! A little sad to be all done now.
