My DS is a 5 and a half months now and we are thinking I am pregnant again. We talked about wanting kids close in age so that they will have someone to always play with. How far apart did you have your kids? Was it easy or pretty hard having two little ones around? My DH wants to wait another week to have me take a test but there are some signs pointing to being pregnant again. One of the big main things is I had light light light spotting for a day and a bit but no actual period. I used to be like clockwork before having DS and it has been a bit wonky since having him but it still usually does show up. Well Im 2 weeks late so.. lol My husband is now saying he is pretty sure I am pregnant and he has this weird 6th sense when it comes to either me being pregnant, if it was going to be a boy, his birthweight ( he guessed 6lbs 7oz DS was 6lbs 5oz)

I had DS2 when DS1 was 14 months old. It wasnt so bad at first but having two toddlers is probably the hardest thing youll ever do.



I'm now pregnant again and I'll have a 4y/o a 35 month old and a newborn. I'm a bit worried to say the least. Hopefully they'll be good helpers though (wishful thinking LOL)

I have an almost 4 year old (18 days to go) a 2 1/2 year old and an almost 6 month old.



It's hard, but not the hell people told me it would be. My two boys are extremely helpful with Abigail and they keep each other entertained when I have to take care of her. They're both on the same schedule down to their naps and still nap 2-3 hrs a day...so it's pretty awesome.

even if we aren't pregnant this time we have decided that we want to try for a second right away. Im a little worried to tell my mom but we can do it financially and once I got help for PPD it really evened me out. I feel ready but I know some people are saying we are absolutely insanse for trying again.

I am almost 21 weeks pregnant with my second. By the time she is here my other daughter Sophia will be only 15 months. I definitely would never have kids so close again. This pregnancy was so hard on me and with a working SO and toddler and dry heaving in the toilet, it just does not work for ME. Of course they will grow up together and hopefully be best friends, but it's gonna be rough!!!!! With this pregnancy I wasn't on birth control for more than a month and I got pregnant. So it was a big surprise.

Go ahead mama! I'm due in April and my kids will be a year apart. The only thing I'm nervous about is whether or not I'll have the time to successfully breastfeed her. Other than that I'm completely excited! :D

my 2 are 18 months apart. I have a 2 year old and a 6 month old and it can be difficult at first but as they start getting older it gets easier. I cant wait until my lo can actually play with my toddler

I have a 9 1/2 month old, and me and my husband are also thinking that I am pregnant. I don't want to take a test yet. I don't know why, just don't. My husband wants to have another baby, so we shall see :) So maybe we will have the same due date! lol Or close anyways.

Well I took a test last night and it said negative but I have all these signs that I am. But it was like this with my first as well. I got 2 negative tests before the positive one. So I am waiting another week or so to take another one.

My kids are 11 months apart. I found out i was pregnant again when my DD was almost 3 mo old :) we planned it that way. We wanted ours close. Its not easy, but parenting is never easy! If you do end up pregnant everything will work itself out :) I'm still alive with a 4 month old & 15 month old. Pretty tired...but still kickin.
