I think you'd be okay. Go for it.

Well, I know it took you a while with your little baby, but if you're emotionally and financially prepared for a scenario in which you get pregnant IMMEDIATELY I say go for it. You've had two children now. You know what it involves. I think you'd be able to think clearly about it at this point.

I dont think it's weird. As long as you feel you are ready..go for it :) I have a 3 year old, a 13 month old and i'm 25 weeks with #3 (he was a complete surprise though lol) Other than a irritable uterus i'm doing pretty good :) I'm super excited to meet him and I love that they all are so close in age.

Any amount of children that you can financially, physically, and most importantly, emotionally care for is enough. It is your decision to make with your husband, not your family. Just enjoy your baby right now while your body heals and see how you feel about it in a few months. =]

I had baby fever literally right after I had my son in March. lol But I'm waiting a year to try. I would say go for it if you both really want it. :) Did you have a natural birth or C-section? If it was a C-section you should probly wait at least one year, even tho I know people that were pregnant 3 months post c-section delivery and their pregnancies were okay, just really rough on their body.

i had a vaginal delivery. and it was a very easy one. with my daughter 5 years ago i hemorrhaged and tore in 4 spots and had to get stitches. i was in labor for 3 days. it was a terrible labor and delivery. with my boy 5 weeks ago i went in to be induced and it was easy, short and actually fun. everyone had a good time. i probably could have done it without an epidural. i pushed him out in less than 7 minutes. very easy going. i hate to say it like this but i just want to have my kids and get all this baby making stuff out of the way. it was really stressful ttc for 3 years.

I had a fantastic c section and a great and easy recovery. For not being how I thought it would go, It was the best experience of my life. I think having a great delivery contributes to wanting another baby so soon. lol My son is such a good baby, too that he makes it all so easy most of the time. Which makes me want another. :)
