Second pregnancy, our daughter is only 5 months old! Anyone else out there with a young baby and are pregnant again? I find myself being just as nervous with this pregnancy as I was with my first.

I had my first two close togerther. my first child was 5 mos old when i found out i was pregnant again. they are now 31/2 and alittle over two. they now seem like the same age to me. it was easy and worked out just fine. i never had to deal with jelousy because when the youngest was a newborn she slept so much during the day that i still was able to give my first all the attention i was affraid she would miss. don't worry about it. my sister and i are only 16 months apart and we are best friends and never bored as children. that is how my girls seem to be now. the only thing i miss is that my oldest didn't really care much about my pregnancy she was too young. i am now 6 weeks pregnant again and i do feel like my oldest is more involved.

Hi Shanna, I am 11 weeks pregnant and have a 9 month old. I was really nervous in the beginning because I was so tired, I didn't think it was possible to take care of my daughter. But I am feeling a lot better now and my energy is coming back. I am still nervous, but I am happy they will be close in age. Congratulations to you!

Hi Shanna, I am 5 weeks preggo and have an 8 1/2 month old. I am not worried, as I dont plan on working when #2 comes. I have plenty of love for both! Good luck to you

I'm hoping we can work things out so I can stay home after this one is born so I can spend lots of time with the both of them. My sister in law's 2 girls are 13 months apart

just a question please no one take this the wrong way. did anyone listen when the dr. said no s_x for 6 weeks after having the first baby????

Speaking for myself, we did wait 6 weeks to have s_x again. My daughter is 5 months and I am only about 7 weeks pregnant. And I believe no baby is a mistake, no matter how close in age they are. I was just wondering if anyone was in the same boat I was.

I'm unsure if i'm pregnant but i've had little brown spotting on the day my af was due which was on 5/28/06. i have not bled since then. my b___sts are sore and tender, fatigue, and starting to have back pains. i was on birth control, however, i missed a few days during the time my ovulation was at its highest peak. i have now stopped taking bc pills because i'm unsure if i am pregnant. I have tested since the day after my af was due and all 7 hpt's were negative. what are the chances of me being pregnant? I just gave birth to my baby 3 1/2 months ago and i have no worries about how many months apart they will be, just not sure if i'm just testing too soon. please help.

We waited 6 weeks for s_x too. I didn't get pregnant again until she was almost 7 months old.
