think positive first of all you can put stress on your body just thinking of that. How far are you?

My mother had 4 babies in 4 years. We were all very healthy. I loved growing up with my siblings. We are very close and still are. Good Luck!!

No. there is no risk, other than not being able to lose the weight. My son was 4 weeks old when i found out i was pregnant with my daughter. (My husband was very impatient). My son is now 17 months old and my daughter is 7 months old and they are doing great! Hope you have some help, and good luck!

My sister had her 2 oldest in under a yr!!! they are 11 months apart and healthy :) Yuo should have nothing to worry about!! My brother and I are 1 yr and 2 wks apart and there is nothing wrong with us :) Enjoy your pregnancy and good luck :)

It all depends on your health and how you take care of yourself. Make sure eat right and get enough sleep. Hopefully your 6 month old is starting to sleep through the night. Also make sure your husband helps you (a lot). Im in the same boat as you. My daughter is 3 1/2 months old and I am 2 months pregnant. Good luck

I had my children 10 months apart my little boy seems to be fine, but when I delievered I lost alot of blood and had to have two blood transfusions.

Please check on the Pregnancy Topics, to the left of this page. Go under Pregnancy complications, then again under the sub-t_tle, Low Birth Rate. It will explain a little bit of how too close together births may have an effect on birth weights. Hope this helps a little.

My sister (1 yrs old and 2yrs old) as well as my cousin (7yrs old and 8 yrs old) kids are excatly one apart. They are all fine!! As for me I have a 3 1/2 month old and I fear I maybe 2 months pregnant! I am too scared to find out although my husband would be thrilled!!!!What symptoms did you all have?

i was just curious, did you all have very easy deliveries of your children? i know i could not have s_x for a long time after my delivery. it almost was 4 months later before it was comfortable. i am pregnant again, but my boy is now 4. i am not looking fowards to having one close like you describe, but what is your secret! how do you make s_x comfortable so soon after the baby comes? that knowledge i am interest in.

If you are in good health things should be just fine. My babies are only 13 months apart and we are all healthy, and don't worry about the weight either, chasing two little ones helps take it off later.
