Needing advice from mamas who have a large age gap between kids

My youngest daughter is about to turn 11. I am currently 22 weeks pregnant with what will be my 3rd daughter. I’m hoping to hear from some mama’s that have had such a large age gap between pregnancies, specifically when it comes to labor and delivery. My first labor was just under 12 hours, and my second was just under 6. Did your body react the same? Did you deliver any quicker or slower? I’m curious to hear others’ experiences! Thanks!

My daughter is 11 and I have a 9 month old
It’s very nice and no issues.

Everything will work out

Mine are 12 years apart and not very close but I do say they have each other back

There is 11 years between my second and third child. Everything was quick but no complications.

My oldest is almost 17 my youngest is 5 months it’s seriously like starting all over again! And pregnancy is so
Much harder when ur older or atleast for me it was

My brother and I have a 20 year age gap, we don’t really see each other

Not from a parenting perspective, but I’m 10 years older than my sister (no other siblings), and it really shaped my life for the better. Same for her, she’s a super awesome kid, very mature and learned from both my mistakes and my wins. She’s my best friend now that we’re 18&28! Support that relationship, even years apart, they’ll have a LOT to teach each other :heart:

Let’s see I have a 23, 22, 13, and 1 year old! Last labor took just as long as w first labor would. The doctor told me my body thought it was in labor for the first time again because of the years in between

my 2 daughters are 8 years apart. i think that pregnancy w my 2nd daughter was way faster than the 1s one

My oldest is 15 and her little sister is about to 4. The 3 year old is a major handful but her 15 year old sister is amazing with her. She baby sits a lot to make money as well. As far as labor, they were both about 12 hours for me, but the 2nd one went much easier. I only pushed for a couple of minutes.

1st was born in 03, 3.5 hours in labor
2nd was born in 09, 6 hr labor
3rd was born in 19, 9 hour labor

My oldest is 13 and I’m due in a few weeks with my 4th boy. My first delivery was complete shit. Like I wanted to be fixed and done. My 2nd son I was in labor no joke 20 minutes. 3rd about 2 hours

I have a almost 1 year old and almost 11 year old and they r really close. I love the age different

I have a 16 year old, 5 year old and 8 week old.
I had 3 csections. First was a emergency, second was planned, 3rd was planned before l went into labour as my waters broke a week early so they hurried me in before it become a emergency csection…
I honestly can’t remember the after pain of my previous csections, I guess it similar to giving birth and forgetting the pain side of it.
My last csection was a little rough tho with recovery 2 days after i felt really sick.
the doctor told me the more babies u have it takes that bit longer for ur uterus to go back to normal so if I felt contraction feeling that’s why of everything going back to normal
Other then that I had no complications etc even with the big gap an age difference…

I’m 9 years older than my lol sis and my mom said that each pregnancy was a little bit worse as she was tired more. But labor went faster each time😂
My sister was born in under 3 hours

My labors got quicker the more I had my eldest was almost 12 when I had my second, she was 37 hours, and my second was 6 hours a boy then I had another 14 months later and he was 1 hour

I also have an 11yr age gap but no children between. My first labor was 12 hours. My 2nd was 3 DAYS.

My brother and I are 16 years apart, with no other children in between. If I remember correctly, my mother said that both deliveries were fairly similar. In fact, she said her body bounced back faster the second time. Sorry I don’t have any first hand experience myself though.
