Quoting *Super*Mom*:" <blockquote><b>Quoting October2011:</b>" Im sure the first couple weeks of a newborn ... [snip!] ... mind a little! lol"</blockquote> Seriously hoping so. Two babies that close in age will be like taking care of twins!"


It is like taking care of twins. I have two girls that are so close in age. We had sex when my oldest was 4 weeks old and I got pregnant. It was a challenge at first but now it's fun, I mean it has its moments, they're best friends though and keep each other occupied but they also fight a lot so that can be frustrating. However, I only have two kids, not 3 so that might be different.

Kudos. I think having to take care of one baby is hard enough. I couldn't imagine having two kids in diapers at the same time.

Omg! At 4 weeks! That sounds so painful. And yes having three kids would be something I'd never imagine. Kids need a lot of attention and I think with two it easier to split time up, but three...eh idk.

You're so right! Mine are 11mo apart and the jealousy my 14 mo old has is heartbreaking! And newborn is so needy. Plus they can't play together yet, and i can't turn my back for a split second because the toddler baby wants pick up the newborn or bop her on the head with toy lol. I wouldn't change a thing now, but it's tough ;-)!

I was lucky and I didn't tear at all so once I was finished bleeding and "healed" we had sex. :oops:

You could tell him that your body needs atleast a year to recover. I've read on other forums on here that your body needs atleast a year to recover, so you aren't really supposed to get pregnant during that year... you could try using that excuse.



Also you could tell him that there's absolutely no sex for the first 6weeks cause you want to make sure everything is healed down there. (I know if you tear really badly they say to wait even longer.) You could also get the depo shot, I was told if I had asked I could have gotten it before I even left the hospital. I got mine last week at 4 weeks pp.
