Hi, My dd is 9 mo old and we are talking about ttc#2 soon. Are we rushing things? I have only ever wanted two children and knew I wanted them close in age (I am a twin and want my kids to have a close bond to thier siblings as well). I know I really want another but is it too soon? Oh I had a c section with #1 also. Thanks!

Hi Rhonda, so far how has dividing time between the two been? And I worry about feeling like c___p with pregnancy #2 and still giving 110% to my 9 mo old....was this a problem?

I never felt too bad during my pregnancy.I also have a boy almost three and a five yr old.But i make sure i spend time with all of them.I let them help me with the baby,like getting me a diaper,a wipe,powder etc.It works out pretty good.I mean sometimes ya they get jealous,but thats just part of being kids.Long as you have patience,you can handel it.I mean the choice is yours if you want to ttc now or wait longer,but i think it is great for siblings to be close in age,then they have more in common,because my sisters are 6-7yrs older than me,and we were not close at all.I wanted them to play dolls with me and they wanted to chase boys.

Hi AA, I have a 10 months old and am 3 1/2 months pregnant. I am so excited. I have to admit I was SO TIRED the first 10 weeks, I thought I'd made a mistake, but that has pa__sed and I feel great. I also had a c-section, doctor isn't worried a bit. Good luck!

I had my kids super close. They are 11 months apart and both my pregnancies were okay. It's exhausting being pregnant and taking care of another little one, but once they get older it is way easier. I still played with my oldest and cuddled him and it was fine. Also a bonus for you would be by the time your are really showing your toddler will be more interested in toys and new found mobilty that you will get more breaks.
