There's no right nor wrong age gap, it's down to personal preference. I have 21mths between my girls which I love as they are growing up together, sharing toys and are not too distant in age to enjoy playing together.
My sister has a 7yr gap between her daughter and son which she loves because her daughter was old enough to understand what was happening during the pregnancy and able to better help out in the preparations for baby and helping out in those early days by fetching things, helping with feeding or changing baby, holding baby.
Do what feels right for your family and bear in mind that even when you start TTC you could be lucky with an immediate BFP but you could just as easily be kept waiting for it. Best wishes and good luck.

Hi there. I'm thinking the same and cannot decide what to do. My daughter is now 2, and i hoped i would have either had another by now or a least have one on the way. But we put it off coz i was waiting for a job interview - that i never got!! I really wish i had just gone for it and not waited. Now our circumstances have changed and my husband is not well and has been out of work for a few months. Part of me wants to go for it because there is never going to be a right time then the sensible side of me wants to wait. Arrrrr!
