I totally feel the same way, my son is just now 6 months old, and I wanted another one REALLY bad. BUT after I thought about it and made a post just like yours a very smart women told me: I realized you say " urge to be pregnant again" not the urge to have another baby...big difference!" and then I realized she was totally right! So then I thought about THAT and decided I would feel bad for my son because he wouldn't be able to get me all to himself for even a year of his life. I wanted him to have more time with me, so I decided it was better to wait till he is like 2 or 3. Then the kids will still be close in age but my little boy will still get his precious time with me. I figure having an Only child, only lasts so long when your planning on having more. :-D Just think about it ♥

I had that crazy erge for a long time. I know that I am not ready for another so quickly but can't wait until I have him/her. Being a mommy is the best!

Yes, i am going crazy with this urge, although I already have another son. I don't have a period yet, which is good, because although I want to be pregnant again and have another baby, I get pretty bad post-partum depression and not sure I want to go through it all again So it is like having tht urge but also denying it.

Well wasn't planned by all means.. but pregnant and due in Nov.. I'm still shocked, baby number 6. Never had any of my kids this close.. have 2 girls 14, 4.. and 3 boys 11, 7, 5 mths.. all planned pregnancies at 3 yrs.. but with 2 of them it was 4 yrs took a lot longer to get pregnant. So defienetly something different!!

there are 17 months between my first 2 and my youngest now 5 months. l would love to be pregnant again soon but my son just started waking every 2 hours at night so would be best to get that sorted first!! also had 2 csections so prob best to wait little while longer. had 3 periods already though, so no probs there!!

I didn't want another one but too late, due again in Oct with my 4th!!! after the first 7 weeks of panic I am extremely excited to have our last baby in Oct again!! My wonderful husband is making sure that won't happen again and having a vasectomy next week lol!!! I had huge issues getting pregnant so this was a major shock, my kids will be 13, 6 and 12mths when number 4 enters the world. Having my first scan next week and all I want is just 1 if they find twins I know Karma is out to get me ;-)

i do, but i think i will need to wait a few years as i have a 5 yrs old, 3 yrs old & my youngest is 6 months so i think i might hold off till they are all a bit older :)

I was under alot of stress when I thought I was pregnant again. I want my kids to be close in age but not that close. But it was still a little disappointing.

absolutely not! My oldest is almost 8 then I had a huge spread, the next is 3 then 2 then 6 months. I got pregnant with my 2 year old 6 months after my 3 year old and that was so hard, I don;t recommend having them quite that close together. We are done having babies now and I can honestly say I'm sooooo glad. Of course we have 4 so that might be why but there have been no baby hungry feelings for me. Of course I don't handle pregnancy well anyway.

I actually thought I was pregnant again and when I realized I wasn't, I was disappointed. My 5 month old is growing too fast.

I had the worst pregnancy but would be pregnant again in a flash.... Really want another one but will have to see what is planned for our future....a little girl would be nice as i already have a boy but YES YES YES another one sooner rather than later would be fantastic :)

I want another, just not at the moment. I want to cherish the time I have with my daughter before bringing another little one into the world. I don't want my time with her distracted from with a pregnancy or another baby in the house. I figure when she's around 2 years old we'll start trying again for another.

I have a daughter who is 16 months. I wanted another 1 when she was little but didnt try for it. Did fall pregant though and now have a son who is 5 months old. I didnt realise how hard work 2 would be. I know it will be great for them when they are older but it is very hard at the mo and I feel they do suffer because of it. I cant give my son half the attention i gave my daughter at that age and my daughter wants more attention then she is getting. You also dont have any time for yourself or for spending with your partner. I didnt think not having "me" time would bother me but you do need it or it gets too much. I would wait a little bit longer at least until your oldest can entertain themselves for longer periods.

Man some of you ladies are very keen to have kids close together!!

I am just loving having one kid, and want to enjoy her growing up first.

They are sweet but I am holding off as I am in no rush to be sick for the first half of the pregnancy again.

I would like to have another by the time she is 3 y/o, and not any longer than that.

I want to work part time, and not just start work to leave again cos am preggo again.

Although, this time, I will utilise the sick-leave that I have, and stay home if/when I am nauseas, as that was just not worth being at work while being sick!!!

And I want to get my body fit again first!!

Maybe I am also not rushing into it as my husband just started his own small business so we are on a bit of a tight budget for a while.

Good luck to those of you who wish to have kids in quick succession. It sounds really great if close kids are good mates! and dont fight, as my three siblings and me fought sorta a lot, but also played well a lot. We're all reasonably good mates now. Distance for me is the only thing, as I am not living near the others.

I am fine with just the one right now. With breastfeeding and having to return to work, I have enough to keep me busy and happy right now. I am just enjoying my son. Also, I had really bad morning sickness for about four months, and I ended up with pre-eclampsia, so I am worried about being pregnant again and missing precious time with my baby.

I do lol, I think it's normal cuz the babies are so sweet around this age but I do want let my body recover before my 2nd. We also don't want to wait too long so when my Aubree is about 1.5 or so, we really want a spring baby next time!

It's odd that I came across this post. My son is almost 6 months old and I am 3 months pregnant. It was a complete accident and I remember the sense of overwhelming panic I felt when I first found out that I was expecting again. Doesn't the thought of potty training and around the clock feedings at the same time scare you just a little bit?

you have to be careful at this age because your hormones are still unstable and this is about the time you feel the need to make a big change. i dont know why but at about 4 or 5 months mom gets the urge to make a major change. also just because you want to be pregnant does not mean that you necessarily want another baby you are likely wanting more of the baby you already have and are not considering that the next baby will have an entirerly different personality.

YES!!!! I'm dying to be pregnant again, but I do want to enjoy Lottie Beth a little bit longer and I don't my hubby is quite ready yet. : ) I think we are gonna start trying again when Lottie Beth turns one. My brother and I are very close in age and I want my kids to be close in age too. Plus, I want 3 kids and want to be done before I'm 30 : )

I don't have the urge yet. Eventually I want another but we want to wait until our son is out of diapers. Plus it was 17hours of labor and I haven't forgotten the pain yet.

my october baby is my second but after i had my first, i felt the same way. we got pregnant as soon as i stopped breast feeding at 6 months. go for it! its hard work having them so close but i also think they will be really good friends (i hope!). my son has a great time playing with my daughter, trying to "teach" her thing and helping me with her.

Ohhh I really do also, I have been ready since the morning my son was born. I loved being pregnant and my son is soo wonderful how could I not want more! My husband and I aren't trying but we aren't trying not to either. God will do what is best for our family :-) Wish us luck!

[deleted account]

The thought of getting pregnant again now would terrify me. I didn't really enjoy being pregnant especially 2nd time round, I was so tired looking after my oldest who is now 2. Having two is alot of hard work, my eldest was a very good baby and was into routine quickly sleeping through the night from 4wks old whereas my 5month old has only started sleeping through the night. I don't regret having them close together as I hope they will enjoy each others company but I will wait a few years and then decide if I'd like another. I would love a little girl but for now i'll adore my little boys :)

ME!!! I cannot wait to get pregnant again! I LOVED being pregnant with my son (who is 5 months old) and I want to be pregnant again so bad! I know that right now my husband and I are financially ok, but when number 2 comes around, it will be such a different story, so we are taking things slow and totally enjoying time with our first born child and son :D We are planning for me to come off birth control in August and start trying again after our son turns 1 so maybe when our next baby is born they will be almost 2 years apart, which is good for us! :)
