Have A 4 Month Old But Want Another

Is anyone here trying to, or wants to get pregnant so soon after having a baby? I have a 4 month old dd, and a 5 year old son and I want another SOOOOO BADLY!!! I don't think my dh will go for it. Does anyone here have babies close in age? How did you convince your dh to have another so soon? My dh and I always said that we will have no less than 3, but no more than 5 kids. I'm about to turn 27 and my dh is 33. I know I may be nuts but I really want to join you ladies again on this TTC forum. Please tell me your stories, and have a lovely day!

Yep, you're nuts. ;-)

Lin, lol. I know I'm crazy, but I love being a Mommy, and I also look forward to retirement. I would like to be raising adults by the time I'm 50, and not teenagers or children. I had my gallbladder removed in April so I have lots of energy now that I don't feel horrible all the time. I also know that once I get the pregnancy itch it doesn't go away until I scratch it!

Maggie, I got pregnant again when my dd was 8 months old. It took 9 cycles with dd, so we figured it would take a while again. Wrong. Anyway, although I love having my 2 girls close (17 mos apart) it was hard on me and my body. I was told you should wait a year to get pregnant again to give your body a chance to recover. So, maybe you should consult your Dr. first and then go from there. If you get the green light from the Dr., more power to you!

my sister is 17 months older than me and my brother is 13 months older than her... i dont think you are crazy being so close in age to my siblings was and still is awesome i loved it. BUT you should definitly visit the obgyn first and make sure you are healthy enough... i wanted my kids really close in age but my emergency csection left me with really low iron i needed time to heal now i finally feel healthy enough to try again and my son turned 17 months yesterday

Hi Maggie...I got pregnant with my twins when my dd was only 3 months old. (I was on BC). Then after I had my boys...on a different type of BC, got prego again exactly 3 months after. I would not change anything about it. I love having my kids close in age. It's great. I am now pregnant again, this time over a year after my last baby. And like you said...about retiring. I will be 27 when I have my last child. I also love kids...I always wanted 6, but I will settle for 5...I don't think I could handle a 5th c-section. :) Anyway, good luck. I hope DH wants another child just as badly. :) My husband said he wanted more....lol while I was in the hospital still! I almost died laughing when he said that. :)

Oh my goodness, snuggly- how could you stand having that many c-sections? Did you have one natural?

Hey Maggie! I have an 8 month old and we've been trying for 2 months. At first, my husband was against it...he said it was too soon. I just kept asking him if he was ready. We had a scare where we both thought I was pregnant and it made us realize that we wanted another one. I hope this helps in some way.
