We decided to go for baby #2 pretty close to our daughter (she's now 2 and has probable CIE). At the time I accepted our 1:4 chance of having another child with Ich and had the mentality of what will be, will be. And in some ways I was `hopeful' (that's the wrong word but I can't explain it any other way) that baby #2 also had Ich for our daughter's sake - she could share the trials and tribulations and have someone who actually understood what it is like for her. Anyhow, baby #2 arrived in September and there's a 19 month age gap and she's unaffected! I have to say that I have no idea how I would've coped with 2 affected children so close in age and this early age!! We'd never get out of the house!!
