My son is 1 in july and I am 19 weeks pregnant, my daughter is 28 months so all 3 are very close in age. Although not planned I'm not worried, its great to have them close in age. This is my 7th baby and its great to have a large family. My husband and I werent planning anymore after no 4 who are now going into the teenage/adult years but low and behold, we're still going:)

I can relate! I had my daughter June 12th, 2008 and I turned around and was pregnant again with my son who I had July 21st, 2009! Neither one of mine were planned. As far as your body it will do GREAT!! Now my doctor on the other hand wasnt to happy. But I have to have a Csection so he said it wasnt good for my scar tissue. I think I would much rather have mine close together like that. CONGRATS TO YALL AND GOOD LUCK!!!

I have 4 children, and there is only 20 months between the first 2 :-) No doubt at all it is trying on your body, but a womans body is an incredible creation, and very capable of bringing you another little treasure a little sooner than expected :-)

Me too! We were thinking about another child but a complete surprise. My doctor suggested that I stop breast feeding, so I did and I have a lot more energy. I understand what you are saying. I am trying to just rest but it hard with an almost 1 year old running around. I hope that things go well for you. I keep telling myself. If my mom can do it I can too. My sister and I are 14 months apart. So when my mom went for her 6 month follow up she was pregnant again with me.

Wow, Looks like we are not alone Joanita. My second was born july 29th, and I just found out I'm pregnant With number 3. Due date right now is feb 25th. My concern is having a repeat c-section so soon. The nurse I talked to when I went to the doctor said I should be fine 10 months was plenty of time. But I'll have to see what the doctor says when I go to my first appointment in july.

Hi Joanita, i am in the same boat, except i had my daughter July 13th & now i have another due in August......Kaitlyn was only 4 months old. I am not worried though as from what everyone else has said they will be real close. My body sure does ache though LOL i will defo be taking a break from this afterwards. You will be fine, just enjoy every moment x

My son was 6months old when I fell pregnant with my daughter who was born July 2009....I was horrified that I was pregnant again considering I was still getting back to myself but once I got over the initial shock I knew it'd be fine. My son is now 2 and my daughter turning one in July and I qwouldn't change it for the world...they're the best of buddies. The first few weeks were hard, especially since I had a caesarean section, but they fall into a routine together and you'll wonder what all the stressing was about....good luck...you'll be fine :)

I had a baby boy in Jan 09'. 9 months later was pregnant with my baby girl. So not planned and a little scary, but actually my body went back better than with the first one. I guess because you are running around soo much more after the second one comes. No worries I'm sure you Will do great:)

I had a baby in July 2009 and I am NOT pregnant right now, but when I got pregnant with my July baby, I had TWINS that were only 9 months old. So my twins and my youngest are only 18 months apart. I will say that it was difficult during the pregnancy....I was so tired early on, that made things difficult, and then later on, they were alot more active and I wasn't.....but I made it through it and so will you.
Congrats on your baby......

Your body will adjust to the pregnancy. I have 2 babies that are only 10 months apart and I think the hardest thing for me the idea that I was pregnant all over again. At first I used to cry all time about it. But now that I have my 2 babies It's wonderful they play with each other all the time. In some ways they act like twins.
Yep, pregnant again (ALREADY!!!) here as well. My son was born 15 July 2009 and I am also about 5-6 weeks pregnant (I think, have to go in for a check up). This was also not planned at all. I'm also a bit concerned that my body hasn't fully recovered from the first pregnancy. I'm trying to get excited about having another baby but so far just a bit daunted by having two under two years old. I really had hoped to wait at least another year. But here I am so I'm trying to get used to the idea. I know there are advantages to having children close together and as I am an 'older' mother (almost 32) in a way it is nice to have children while I am still feeling energetic. I understand how you are feeling though. Just remember, we are mums now, we can do ANYTHING we set our minds to. :)

my eldest was 11 months(girl) when i fell pregnant with my second (Boy), and now they are 8 & nearly 7 and even though they are boy and girl they are really good friends. My third was 3 1/2 years later and even though he's a boy he doesn't get along with his brother, I now have a 10 months old girl which was only 2 1/2 years gap, it will be interesting to see who she becomes close to.
You will be fine, actually it is sometimes easier when they are close in age as they older one will still have a day nap, so if you can get them to sleep at the same time and you need to you can rest too, but when they are older you have a toddler running around all day and no rest and a new born to look after it can be more exhausting.
