I am the mother of a 4 1/2 month old girl (my first-born), born May 13, 2010. Of coures, being a military wife, our "time-table" of having a child does not operate like civilian families (i.e. they get 365 days to make a baby... we get the time between deployments). My spouse is due to leave for the desert at the beginning of the year for longer than I'd like..(blah!), but on the other hand, I don't want our children to be too far apart. Doc said that you need to give your body at least 1 year to heal.... what if I don't want to wait that long? If God blesses us, we are hoping to get pregnant right before he leaves... (for my daughter, he was over-seas for that entire pregnancy and returned about 3 wks before she was born, and I would ideally like to do the same for our "next child")... thoughts? Advice?
Thanks for listening...
