Two under two... E'M Shikari Due March 10; 1 child; 1 angel baby; Preston, United Kingdom 1747 posts

I went to the doctor today and she put me at being six weeks pregnant. DD is 9 months old. I am so so terrified of having two babies so close in age (I was on the pill, like I was when I conceived DD, so I was not prepared for this at all!). I think I want to go ahead with this pregnancy because the other option isn't for me, but I am freaking out about it so much... I feel trapped and I have no one to turn to because the select few people I have told already have made me feel really shitty about it... Please someone tell me it will be ok?!

No biggie. I got pregnant with my second while I was on the pill and my daughter was 6 months.

Mine our 19 months apart. Everyone was like "oooh god! What are you going to do?" And scared the shit out of me. I think its easier with them close together. They entertain each other, the older one helps out a lot, you get diapers out of the way at the same time, ect. I love it. If you want you can PT me and message me if you have any questions.



Oh! I was 18 when I had my first and just turned 20 when I had my second. :-)

It will be okay! My daughter was 10 months old when I got pregnant with my second. Going from one child to two isn't easy but it isn't impossible either! Plenty of people have done and will continue to do it! I promise, you'll be okay! And your kids will be super close!! My girls are best friends! I think it's easier having two under two than have two toddlers (which I am dealing with now). Blah! But if you need a helpful ear, I'm here for you love!

it will be okay. For a while, I had 3 under two. Then 3 3 and under. It was intense at times but overall it wasn't bad.

Mine are 13 months apart and i was terrified but it wasnt that bad at all! In fact we are working on number 3. :D
I love that they are close in age, and my 23 month old is so sweet to the baby. It sounds scary now but trust me its going to be wonderful

you'll be fine. Just keep your lines of communication open. That's so huge all around it really does help. I had twins when my oldest was 20 months old. It was hectic and I was terrified. Honestly, now they're 4 and oldest is almost 6 and this is the worst so far LOL
