i just gave birth to my little girl 4 months ago and my husband wants us to get pregnant again "so the kids can grown up together" is it too soon to get pregnant again?

Yes!! Considering it takes the average body 2 years to recover from a pregnancy- that is way too soon I think. Of the people I know that had babies closer together than 2 years, 17 months is about the closest. I'd wait at least 9-12 months if I were you to get used to your new baby and give your body some recovery time. They will still be close and growing up together if they are 1-2 years apart.

I read an article while I was at my dr's appt the other day. It said the best time to start trying again is when your baby is around 18mths. This means they would be about 2 1/2 years apart. You have to take into consideration your childs emotional development. Of course every situation is different, but babies and toddlers need lots of attention and costant care.

I have 5 kids and am pregnant with the 6,th last 2 will be only 17 monthes apart,I say its good to have first 2 close together 18 monthes apart is good.But up to you when u feel ur body is ready...Its hard to have them close but i think it pays off later,when they get bigger.Just my thoughts and i have alot of friends who had their kids like between 16-18 monthes apart.Ok if u can and want to do it..Your choice.

If your OBGYN says it is medically safe for you to try to get pregnant again only 4 months after the birth of your daughter then it becomes a personal decision. If you are ready...go for it...if not...wait a few months. Good Luck!
